Broadway Deli & Cafe (DOG FRIENDLY)

Pepper, Suki and I love having Saturday morning breakfast at the Broadway Deli and Cafe. Everything is fresh and soooo yummy. The patio is dog friendly with the nicest staff, diners and doggies.

Island Outpost - and its not even on the list? Really?

Broadway Deli's patio feels 10 degrees cooler than the outside temperature, somehow. It's just so comfortable out there. Keith (chef/co-owner) comes out to greet his guests every hour or so..sometimes more often. AND, it's dog friendly! SO, how can you beat great food, warm service and an outside area that's dog friendly. You just can't!

The dog friendly Dunedin Brewery for sure.

Love Jollimon's. How can Kelly's not be on this list!? They were pioneers in outdoor dining in Dunedin! My sons used to love to go there to check out the old turtle pond!
