The best dog-friendly patios in Vancouver to enjoy with your pooch

Jun 8 2022, 11:00 pm

Vancouver may be an outdoorsy city with plenty of pups, but it’s also notorious for not being very dog-friendly when it comes to transit, dining, or home rentals.

This is why dog-friendly patios are such a big deal here – the moment the weather turns warm, there’s nothing else quite like bringing your four-legged friend along with you for a patio drink.

Lucky for us, there are quite a few eateries in and around the city with pup-friendly policies, which means your pooch can enjoy patio privileges alongside you.

We don’t like to leave our four-legged friends at home and we know you feel the same. So next time you decide to go out for a coffee or a meal along with your pup, check out these joints that provide a welcoming space for your pup.

Here are just some of the fantastic dog-friendly patios in and around Vancouver to visit with your pooch.
