Top Dog-Friendly Brunch Spots in Baltimore

It’s Sunday morning, and you’ve got crab cake benedict and bottomless mimosas on your mind. You’ve been out all night, and your furry friend is longing for attention...Fortunately, you can share the joys of brunch with your dog in Charm City, where restaurant sidewalks and patios are filled with man’s—and woman’s—best friend! Here are some of our favorite dog-friendly brunch spots in Baltimore featuring BOMB brunch menus (& usually bottomless options!) updated for 2023!

The Point in Fells

A local favorite, and consensus winner among dog-friendly eating spots in Baltimore. Their Canine Cuisine menu may be the greatest thing we’ve ever seen. Snag a doggie rice bowl with either chicken or beef OR doggie chicken tenders with carrots for just $5! The Point is located in the heart of Fells Point and overlooks the water. Instagram heaven. 1738 Thames St, Baltimore, MD 21231

Mama's On The Half Shell

With some of the best oysters in town, this Baltimore staple attracts both locals and out-of-towners. This cozy seafood restaurant welcomes fido on the outside patio. Located in the heart of Canton Square, Mama's On The Half Shell is the ultimate people (and dog) watching spot. And can we talk about the outdoor misting system? Truly a dream on a hot summer day. 2901 O'Donnell St, Baltimore, MD 21224

Pitango Bakery + Cafe

Oh Pitango, we love you dearly. With tons of outdoor seating on the water and great Wi-Fi, this is a solo diner’s dream spot. Food is ordered at the counter and sandwiches are made on the spot. Water bowls and lots of metal poles to tie up your buddy. Simple, casual, and homey. The almond croissant, mint lemonade, and prosciutto avocado toast can’t be missed. 903 S Ann Street, Baltimore, MD 21231

Atwater's Canton

If you're looking for a quicker, more laid-back spot for brunch, Atwater's is it! There’s rarely a wait, the food is local and delish, and prices are very reasonable. There are five locations of this cafe, but on weekends, our favorite spot for brunch is the Canton location because of their outdoor patio and parking lot! Our fav menu items include avocado toast with goat cheese and dukah, the cheddar buttermilk biscuit, and lemon pound cake bites. Free iced coffee refills, too! It’s everything a casual, no-frills brunch needs to be! 3601 Boston St, Baltimore, MD 21224

Kooper's Tavern

Named after the owners’ Yellow Lab, Kooper’s Tavern is one of the dog-friendliest spots in Baltimore. Brunch with your pup at one of the outdoor tables and enjoy some of the best people watching in Fells Point while enjoying a brew from their impressive list or noshing on their award-winning burgers. Kooper's owns another dog-friendly restaurant next door called Slainte. 1702 Thames St, Baltimore, MD 21231

El Bufalo Baltimore

Head over to what the locals call 'El Buf' for one of the most fun, dog-friendly brunches in Canton! With their 'Brunch Wheneves' all-day menu, you can never be too late for brunch. Our friends at El Bufalo are almost as obsessed with dogs as we are, so your pup will more than likely be greeted with water, treats and pets IN ADDITION to the 'Pupper Suppers & Treats' dog menu that offers steamed rice with chicken or steak and puppacinos! 2921 O'Donnell St, Baltimore, MD 21224

Barcocina Baltimore

If you're feeling feisty after a night out and ready for a Mexican brunch with waterfront views, BarCo is the place for you! Enjoy classics like margaritas and all of your favorite tacos PLUS a full brunch menu, mimosas & more. Do not skip the pasilla-lime-balsamic sauce on your guac -- it is LIFE CHANGING. 1629 Thames St, Baltimore, MD 21231
