Went to Carytown and had lunch at Weezie’s Kitchen. As we walked around, I noticed all the cool shops and clothing boutiques. Wish I had had more time to go shopping. Will definitely be back so I can do that!

Normally I can shop for hours. Thought this was a very tired looking street. Would not go again Shops are a bit samey.

The answers provided are correct. I don't think any restaraunts allow dogs in. But, some shops will allow them. I know there is a dog pet treat shop that you and your dog can shop at.
