We've recently opened Lost Dog Cocktail Lounge next door to Lost Dog Cafe so guests can stay later and enjoy live music!

This is a hopping place. It was busy on a Saturday late morning. I had the Mango Red Curry with grilled chicken. It was ample and tasty.

Courteous greeting. Pleasantly told of short wait. Plenty of comfortable seating while waiting. Service once seated was just ok -- not very accommodating of kids -- this is more of a date-night place, although I saw plenty of older folks. Food was only ok as well -- spinach/artichoke dip had way too much cream cheese and was barely warm; Mac... More

We stopped in Binghamton for the night and found the Lost Dog cafe. There is parking available on the streets and a nearby garage. The restaurant was busy but we were quickly escorted to a table. We ordered the hummus tray and asparagus cakes for appetizers and an order of the Quinoa with roasted vegetables adding Portabello mushrooms to share.... More

Loved the unexpected hipster atmosphere in the middle of downtown Binghamton. You could have picked this place up and set it down on W. 3rd street in Manhattan. The bartenders and wait staff were laid back and super sweet. The food was locally sourced and on the healthy side. A good spot and I am glad we went. We brought... More

Stopped by for lunch last week and absolutely loved it. Service is great, cute decor, and the food - oh my god. I ordered "The Reward" sandwich and I highly recommend it. It was so good that I want to drive 3 hours from the city just to go to the Lost Dog Cafe and order it again.

Good food. Great variety. Got stuck in Binghamton and was looking for a place to hang. Found the dog thank goodness. This place could make it anywhere. In Binghamton it is like fine dining.

In town for an event and needed lunch so we checked TripAdvisor. We debated a couple other choices and decided to go with number 1. A funky and fun decor and enthusiast service made this a good choice without evening tasting the food. Both of our sandwiches were very good - interesting touches like the brie and raspberry jam with... More

Visited 6/13/04 for dinner with two families. What great advise from trip advisor! Passing through and will make sure to go here anytime in Binghamton! Hostess was helpful and friendly. Lounge had great service and drink selections. Food was great as was our server. Even the kids Mac and cheese was delicious!
