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!

Good food/ good location

Located in downtown Binghamton across from doubletree hotel. Great atmosphere and good food. Al a Vodka pasta was good. Needed more chicken. Bartender did a good job mixing drinks. Food and drink prices were reasonable. I will eat here again.

Did not expect this quality in a restaurant in Binghamton. Quite a nice stop over during our travels on Route 17. We decided to go there for lunch since Trip Advisor rated it pretty high. They serve a different style of food. Mostly Cagin with a rather good spicy flavor. Also had diet root beer. We all felt it was... More

Service was great, sandwiches and menu highly unique. Came during late lunch hour and very impressed with service and atmosphere. Highly recommend the PMS Brownie A La Mode!

We've eaten at Lost Dog twice this year and I have to say it was only average. Fairly high prices for the area and food that is at best average. However, the atmosphere is pleasant, the place has some character and the staff is welcoming. Unfortunately there are not many alternatives in this area.

The Lost Dog has been a favorite for years. They keep signature dishes on the menu but offer seasonal items and daily specials. Soups are interesting and home-made, sandwiches are interesting and dinner entrees are excellent, Greek Chicken is my favorite. Casual surroundings, popular with the local college community as well as business professionals in the area.

We met friends at The Lost Dog Cafe to celebrate a birthday. Great food with many, many gluten free options! Interesting choice of wines and spirits. Can't wait to visit again!

There was just a little wait -- even on a Monday night. Food was really good. Menu had entrees different than other places. I thought the service was better than other places i have been - from the hostess to the bartender to the waitress - and others. Highly Recommended.

The dog has a vibrant and energetic atmosphere combined with a homey feeling, like the village in the day. Their menu varies a great deal, in that I find the soup to always be imaginative and interesting. Great spices and nuanced additions of vegetables. Usually one of their specials is awesome. Tasty and filling in a good way. Vegetables prepared... More

Went there based on all the reviews I read. It was just what we expected. Great food for a great price. Went on a Monday and got $10 off for a bottle of wine. And Tapas appetizers on happy hour (3p - 6p) Had the parmesan crusted chicken sandwich with a mixed salad and their own balsamic dressing. Really good!!!... More

Went her with my wife, daughter and her BF after moving her into SUNY Bing. I was pleasantly surprised with the food quality and selections. Although they are vegan friendly they also have a nice selection for those of us who insist on being carnivores. The atmosphere is shabby chic and they pull it off well. The service staff was...
