My husband and I always enjoy dropping into Blue Dog for a healthy lunch. This weekend we viewed the drawings of Jack Jackowetz, the featured monthly artist, while eating one of our favorite menu items - chicken bruschetta panini and citrus salad - filling and delicious entree! Their food and service never disappoints. Bon appetit!

We've visited several times and the food and service is great. And, you can also indulge in a nice glass of wine. They have a great menu and their soups and wraps etc are delicious.

Went for breakfast and to meet a friend. The girls behind the counter were clearly not happy to be there. They were very miserable.. Asked about a couple of things on the menu and they said just read the board. Ordered something simple and a fruit cup. Fruit cup had about 2 tablespoons of fruit. Very over priced for what... More

I am a regular here, the food here is always good, I have never been disappointed. The Tuna melt is yummy, their salads fresh & healthy, the soups and chill are my favourites! The coffee is excellent, lots of flavour but not bitter. This is my regular spot. Make sure you come here!!

Good simple food, casual, affordable. Once, rented the meeting room upstairs for a day long Board meeting. They provided coffee and lunch was just down the stairs.

Blue Dog is one of my and my girlfriend's favourite places to go in Brantford. The atmosphere is quaint and cozy and their food selections are always good. It is the perfect place to spend a quiet morning or afternoon having a good conversation or reading a good book. If you're in the area this is a place I wouldn't... More

Great food. Happy staff. Our favourite place to go to for a quick or relaxing bite to eat. The patio is always well kept and gorgeous to sit around with friends or even just a good book
