The cafe was really busy but we got a table outdoors in the shade. Food was excellent and tasty! The burger I had was huge and truffle champagne fries were very flavorful. Waitress was very attentive. I would go back for sure.

The White Dog is a local place in Wayne, and I love the atmosphere. The menu changes seasonally and often. Chefs Zach Grainda and Greg Maloney source from local farms and are guided by principles of sustainability. They have a complete separate vegetarian/vegan menu.

Servers are wonderful, helpful and courteous. The food is amazing and drinks generous! Just be careful of the times you will be coming...mid-afternoon, only the bar menu may be available...if you're expecting a late lunch.

Since my office is located close to the White Dog in Wayne, I am fortunate to visit during lunch and dinner. The service is wonderful and it has a great ambience and welcoming atmosphere. I love the calamari, burgers, steak, and fish entries. Sure I will be back soon.

Met my best friend for the second time at the Wayne location of The White Dog Cafe. Hostess very friendly upon entering the restaurant. Decor inside is a blend of inviting farmhouse and eclectic dog theme. Love the interior. It was too hot to eat outside/ but the patio must be great with better weather. Excellent fresh brewed iced tea... More

Local meats and cheeses featured on the menu were excellent, and prepared beautifully. Our servers were wonderful. the mushroom soup (with mushrooms grown nearby) was my Favorite of the five dishes we sampled, not inlcuding the little treats sent out by the chef. The bar was loud, so we asked to sit in a smaller quieter room which was definitely... More

I was so delighted to walk into this charming dog-themed restaurant, I couldn't wait to order food and drinks. The Bloody Mary was fantastic, and the food was delicious. The restaurant has a great environmentally-friendly concept, a core value it shares in a great brochure they created. The service was excellent and our table was very comfortable, allowing time to...
