Whenever in the Islands we have to stop at the Love Dog for breakfast. They no longer seem to be doing our favorite shrimp Benny, but they had a lovely, fresh eggs Benedict with fresh crab on special this time. Yum! We love their bread pudding with whiskey sauce too. The food here is just plain excellent. Casual setting. Laid... More

We had a phenomenal meal at the Love Dog Café! Our server, Lira, was friendly, down to earth, and very attentive. We started with the Warm Brie appetizer and it was delicious. Our main entrees were the Beef Tenderloin special with a Cabernet Portabello reduction, and Seafood with Romesco over Polenta - both were amazing. We finished off with a... More

These two organic possibilities give Lopez Island our vote for the best vacation food on the Islands. We'd love to find others, but meanwhile we'll visit here.

Colorful, healthy and flavorful. Outside seating on a warm sunny afternoon, or inside on an other than sunny day (which can happen; it's an island). Service by a new (younger) person got better as the meal went on (everybody has to start somewhere). We will be back and try another dish; thank you!

We had lunch at Love Dog as part of a Backroads bike trip on Lopez. The atmosphere was pleasant, service very attentive and friendly, but the food was, at best, ok. Lemonade with herb flavoring was creative, but not great. Salmon salad was good. Burger only fair. Overall, go for the experience. Modest expectations will be met or exceeded. High... More

The food is fun and lively, the atmosphere fresh and similar to any nice coffee house. It seems to be a west coast thing to pay for bread, but we paid $5 for two slices, then after finishing the food, we ordered more. Now we spent $100 for 1 appetizer, 1 salad entree, 4 glasses of house wine, it seems... More

This was our first stop when we hit Lopez Island. That's important to note because Lopez is a funky, fun sort of place right out of the 60's. When we arrived b y ferry I think we doubled the number of Republicans on the island! My wife and I both took the server's advice and enjoyed our meals. They even... More

My husband and I visit Lopez Island as often as possible, which also includes stopping by our favorite restaurant in town, The Love Dog Cafe. The food is amazing! The ambience is cozy. The Staff are welcoming. We are going back ASAP.

Tour de Lopez. Great event. Clearly the Village knew it was coming but the management at Love Dog was in a different space and time continuum. Granted we were a party of 11 but the place wasn't full when we got there. Had to beg to place a drink order, to order our meals and then, when they came an... More

We eat at the Love Dog several times a year. The menu is yummy and the food presentation is wonderful.
