White Dog Cafe - for bruncn, lunch or dinner - a great place - give it a try!!

White Dog Cafe in Wayne has been a favorite since I 1st went to the White Dog in Philadelphia. A great menu, and the food and preparation to match. Great setting and free parking. Reservations should be made as it is very popular. .

Everything we ordered was outstanding! They source mostly everything from the local area. I highly recommend the calamari (best I have EVER had), salmon, and Kennett Square mushroom soup.

A great lunch experience. We were thrilled by White Dog. In a strip mall setting. Multiple elegant sitting areas with different decor and themes but all clever, upscale, and well done. Professional wait staff. Hundreds of framed pieces of dog art on the walls. Ham and egg in bechamel sauce, mushroom soup with 7 types of mushrooms, salad special, local... More

Must have dessert: The cookie jar- literally a ceramic white dog cookie jar that is filled with warm cookies and a brownie served with a glass of milk. If you don't like dogs the decor might be annoying. It's tastefully done - including embroidered pillows that stick to the theme.

The food had a good taste but like many classy restaurant small portion . Salmon was fresh and linguine was good too. The menu is... More

I can't get enough of this place! The menu changes often, so there is always something new to try, along with the delicious regular offerings. They use local organically grown fruits and veggies, so everything is fresh. The atmosphere is super. You can eat inside or outside, and you can ask for a quiet table or one in a more... More

I've never had a bad meal a White Dog although my favorite is brunch. Unfortunately, PA changed a liquor law so they can no longer offer all you can drink Mimosa's but the food is still wonderful. It is a bit more expensive than other restaurants on the main line but like I already said. I've never had a bad... More

One of two, (about to be three), White Dog Cafes in the Philadelphia area, this one has an "old inn" feel with a predominate theme of dogs. Both inside and outside dining are available and are nicely done. The menu offers a number of varied appetizers, salads, entrees, and deserts and a good wine list. I had the swordfish which... More

Our waiter was Michael and he was very polite and respectful. We sat on the patio which is beautiful. We listened to the specials and placed our order. We had a complementary chef starter which was cucumber with salmon roe and cream cheese with fresh tarragon. Great way to start the night off. I ordered a berry gin cocktail and... More
