Lost Dog Cafe, now in its 18th year is locally owned and operated by Marie McKenna & Elizabeth Hughes. We feature fresh, innovated cuisine that is locally sourced when possible including grass-fed beef, and many gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options. Lost Dog Cafe is a 150 seat restaurant and has a full-bar and an extensive coffee, tea and dessert menu as well. We've recently opened Lost Dog Cocktail Lounge next door to Lost Dog Cafe so guests can stay later and enjoy live music! The Lounge is open until midnight on weekdays and 1 a.m. on Friday & Saturday evenings. We also do catering!

Great fun, excellent food, friendly staff.

I highly recommend this place. It is funky, has a great esthetic, and the staff is friendly and helpful. I have a few dietary restrictions and the chef and kitchen crew went to town, serving me an excellent healthful meal. Loved the whole experience.

We were attending a local play, and were looking for a place to eat dinner before we went. The Lost Dog Café is rated #1 for a reason...it was awesome! We arrived about 5:00. There were people there, but fairly quiet. We were waited on quickly. Our server was competent...knowledgeable...but no more than that. By 6:00 the place was absolutely... More

My coworkers and I travel for work. I have heard about the lost dog for two years and finally got to have my first visit. First, service was great and timely. I wasn't overly pleased with my chicken sandwich (recommended ny a hotel employee nearby) I don't think I was used to the type of breading... Side salad was good.... More

Just attend my son's graduation at Binghamton University and had a chance to try out this SOooo popular restaurant. They DO NOT take reservation in advance. We arrived at 5:30pm and waited for 1 hour and 10 mins for our table. We ordered their signature dish, penne with shrimp, so BIG but very yummy, burger taste ok, steak was good.... More

Took my mom here for lunch. Lots of variety on the menu, so something for everyone. The sweet potato fries were super--fresh, hot, kind of spicy. The menu touted lots of gluten free, fresh, natural foods. So, I was surprised that the sandwiches all came on white, French bread. A little dry and no flavor or nutritional value. Looks like...

What can I say that hasn't already been said in other comments? You won't be disappointed stopping by for lunch or dinner. High quality ingredients, delicious combinations of flavors and a nice atmosphere. Should be a top stop for food if you are staying in the area.

Met family at the Lost Dog for dinner. We had a very good meal and an excellent waitress. The appetizers were very fresh and hot, the salad very fresh. My cheesesteak sandwich was tender and very flavorful. We really enjoyed our visit!

There aren't many options better than a Subway Sandwich at a Sunoco station as you drive across Central NY, but we were delighted to find this cute, funky marvel tucked inside the ravaged city of Binghamton. Eclectic fare that includes waygu grass Fed burgers with sweet potatoe fries, smoked mozzarella ravioli and many other satisfying selections. A decent wine and... More
