Want Sunday to feel like Saturday? Go to White Dog Cafe for the brunch. Grab a Sunday buzz off of the all-you-can-drink mimosa, bloodies, or sangria for $10. Try their scrumptious and unique options. This is not your greasy spoon kind of place--this is truly good, nice, special food. Whether it's a breakfast-type meal you are looking for or a lunchy food you can get it. I got the shrimp and grits and this dish was AWESOME! The truffle fries are delightful and apparently the french toast I originally wanted is so good that they had 86'd it already. This is a great place to gather, to dine, and to make the work week seem far, far away.

“Sunday, yummy Sunday!”
Reviewed February 12, 2012

We have become breakfast regulars at The White Dog in Wayne for months, and plan to keep up with the tradition. If you are looking for a more refined way to start the day, this is it. We love a good diner, but somehow sitting in a beautiful, cozy ambience, coffee in a cup and saucer poured from a proper coffee pot, followed by delicious, beautifully prepared eggs, bacon, french toast or whatever catches your fancy on the very diverse menu, is a special way to start the day. Service is spot on, and you are welcome to linger and enjoy. Portions are perfect, not massive. Great for a table for two, or a party of twelve....everyone seems to be having a good time!

“Great Food and Nice Bar Crowd”
Reviewed February 8, 2012

Very classy place on the Philadelphia Main Line. Attrractive decor compliments a varied menu with a focus on using local prodce and meats and cheeses. Vegetarian dishes are also offered and they are actually delicious even if you're not a vegetarian. One of my favorites is the thick cut bone-in pork chop, also purcased from a local farm. The wine list is excellent, ranging from moderate in price to expensive, depending on your mood and budget. Fun "dog" dcor, hence the name "White Dog Cafe". I recommend this place highly.

“Good food but reservation process flawed”
Reviewed February 2, 2012

The food it quite good....food to table for the most part. It's a little pricey but not over the top. My biggest complaint is the reservation process. We've never had our request for the garden room honored (it would be better to just say, "it's full" than to give us hope and then disappoint), and we've had to wait either more time or less time than advised when we arrived meaning that we have just bought our drink which we then have to carry through the crowds to our table or we cool our heels wondering what the hold-up is all about. I think they are still getting their act together. It was all the buzz when it opened....I hope it can live up to its potential of a fun, hip, yummy place to have dinner.
