Went for brunch. Parking difficult, hostess rude. Food was okay, seating awkward and uncomfortable. Eggs benedict was overcooked.There are so many better places for brunch food (with better prices). Love the original White Dog, but this one is actually annoying.

I've been a fan of the White Dog since its early days in Philadelphia, but this was the first trip to the new(ish) location in Wayne. First, when you step inside you're delightfully overwhelmed by canine portraits. They line the walls in every room. Oil paintings (even in the bathroom stalls), prints old and new, shadowboxes, etc. I loved that each room retained the doggie theme but felt very different from clubby to greenhouse, cozy pub to elegant dining.

Now for the food. White Dog has a tradition of offering local food...from within 50 miles...and I love that. It's not only sourced locally, it's delicious. Our group tried 3 different sandwiches and an omelet. My spice rubbed chicken with apple and brie was yummy, the brioche holding it together but not overtaking the experience. Fries were fab...the old Boardwalk kind with a touch of garlic salt.

Service was excellent, not hovering, but very attentive.

If you're looking for a fun and tasty place for lunch or dinner...go to the dogs!

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.

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!
