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!

Don't be fooled by the word "café" This is a full fledged restaurant offered a great menu. The portions are tremendous and a great variety. If you are a vegan or gluten free, the menu indicates the items for you. I had the Greek Chicken and it was prepared perfect. Don't be fooled by the outside, the place may look... More

This is one of the best restaurants. The Lost Dog has a great atmosphere - there are regular rotations of musicians, it has a side room off of the main restaurant and it has extra space where they host events (which included the bridal shower for a wedding I was in). The food is phenomenal - it really can accommodate... More

We were in town visiting Binghamton University and saw these great reviews for The Lost Dog Cafe. Service was excellent. We came for dinner on a Friday evening around 6 and it was packed.

Just across the street from the Doubletree Hotel where we were staying, this was recommended by the hotel staff and a convenient venue for dinner. We walked in the lounge entrance since that was closest to the hotel, but only later realized the main entrance was around the corner. Interestngly there are 2 separate bar areas in this restaurant -... More

Checked out Tripadvisor for a restaurant near Binghamton University and came up with The Lost Dog Cafe. Wanted to avoid the typical chain restaurants, and this place sure does. Great atmosphere and interesting menu. Definitely give it a try for dinner or lunch when passing trough the Binghamton area. You won't be disappointed!

Stopped here on our way to the Finger Lakes for a quick lunch. Delicious 'shroom' sandwich, incredibly moist chicken sandwich and the best sweet potato fries we've had in a restaurant. Interesting special cocktails. Try the Negroni with 1911 Gin.

Hot good food. Lively atmosphere. Impeccable service. What more could you ask for? Vegan and gluten free available. Particularly recommend the Cajun beans and greens and the smoked mozzarella ravioli.
