Most places are only open for brunch on Sunday, so we were very pleased to see that White Dog also does brunch on Saturday. The Maryland crab eggs benedict was delicious, as was the selection of scones. The sangria was just okay. The decor was fabulous, though the furniture is a bit awkward / uncomfortable.

I went to the White Dog Café twice in the last week. Firstly for a business lunch and then for a romantic anniversary with my wife. What a super find!! The restaurant looks quite plain from the outside however you are literally transported to a different world when you enter. Lovely décor (dog themed, of course) and four delightful rooms. When the weather is nicer they also have a patio option. Food is delicious, organic, seasonal and fresh. Service is attentive but not intrusive. Wine list is very good. Their in restaurant flier says that they are fully renewable energy powered too as well as using local suppliers and farms. Good job, White Dog Café - please keep it up!!

Decor early bowser...dogs, dogs dogs. Loved every pic/statue, etc. So did the lovely bride.

Mid week---got there early---Yankees on with Jeter, Andy P and Mo for first time this year...national holiday---now THAT is what the white smoke symbolized this afternoon!!!

Walk into a wooden panelled bar...roomy, tables, dog pics, etc. Nice feel---it was a little early so not crowded---upon leaving later jammed---fyi.

Nice bright dining room...great table location...and comfortable for the "over size 42 regular" crowd.

Did small plates---

Lamb sliders---good, not extraordinary...meat done right, just not much going for it...worth a try though.

Salmon flat bread...excellent---the veggies/tomatoes, etc---very well balanced and bread excellent.

Tuna tartar with avocado---bland...a culinder of ahi, with clump of avocado in a soy reduction...nor much flavor...and I like sashimi...maybe add some wasabi???

Bride then had the rigatoni's with lamb ragu---looked almost like basil ricotta..maybe too much there??? Some spice in there as well

I had the linguine with chopped clams, some greens and some very heavy tasting cheese or egg or whatever...very, very rich.

Both pastas as small plates.

Lot of food for $70.00. Some alcohol broght bill to 93---tax to 99.

Very reasonable price...food was ok...don't need much.

Try it

After an initial bad experience when they first opened, we have been back 3 times in the past 3 months. The spacing is better, the parking issues are resolved, the service was attentive, and the food was very good, as it was initially. Food is creative and very nicely done.

Needed an impromptu spot for brunch with my daughter at school on a Sunday...without reservations we were seated quickly and the food was fabulous. I had an omelet and bacon (very generous serving of some VERY good bacon)...and both were crazy fresh..but for a "starter" I had the onion bisque..positively delicious..and id I note the breads? cranberry scone!...
My daughter and I spent a good amount of time just talking before during and after the meal and I felt NO rush to move along, the server was great...in word Go!
