Description: 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!

Binghamton reminds me a bit of Baltimore, it's a bit older, a bit gritty and therefore has even a stronger and authentic contemporary character. This restaurant is a perfect reflection of place. The staff were kind, helpful and authentic. The decor is smile inducing...how often are you directed to the loo with "take a left at the blue octopus"? The... More

My daughter had the penne ala vodka and I had the quinoa wrap with Mac and cheese. Both meals were out of this world. Service was great and the decor of this place is really trendy and nice.

This is the coolest place to go in the whole greater Binghamton area in my opinion. Very eclectic, cool, relaxed atmosphere and they have the best staff.

I love meeting friends for lunch and dinner at the Lost Dog Cafe. It's one of the first places I think of going when out of town guests are visiting. I love their menu selection and vegetarian choices. The portions are perfect in size and very creatively prepared. It's always crowded so you know it's good. You won't be sorry.

The more urban, modern type folk will love this place. I am traditional and find it very weird and uncomfortable. As far as the food, it's good local cooking.

Came for lunch on Black Friday. Place was packed. Had to wait 15-20 mins but after that things were good. Seats are a bit tight. But not horrible. The food was very good and so was the service. I would not hesitate to come back although maybe at a less crowded time.

We almost gave up, parking is limited, but I am glad we stuck it out. Everything was delicious and our waiter Kyle was wonderful! Good pick!
