While Phoenix might not be known for being the best city to explore with your dog during the day, what with the often intense heat and all, brunch is another story. Before the sun has had a chance to climb high in the sky and give off all it’s heat, Phoenix residents and their dogs can grab a bit of brunch and some fresh air at some of the best dog friendly brunch spots in Phoenix.
Jewel’s Bakery offers a luxurious weekend brunch from 8:30 am- 3pm. This sweet little cafe is run by a mother, daughter, grandmother, aunt, and grandfather- so saying it’s been ‘kept in the family’ in an understatement! Jewel’s bakery was born from a desire to provide those with dietary restrictions a way to enjoy a baked good every now and again. Their outdoor patio is the perfect place to cozy up with your pup and enjoy a long, luxurious brunch before the heat of the day sets in.
The outdoor seating area at Scramble is dog friendly and includes a great view of the mountains. This is a very popular spot for diners with dogs, as the patio almost always has one canine in attendance. Staff here will bring your dog a bowl of water to help beat the heat while you dine away.
Located in central Phoenix, Melrose Kitchen is a hidden gem for those seeking a relaxing weekend brunch experience. The menu at Melrose Kitchen leaves little to be desired as there are options for every desire to be found.
Located in the heart of old downtown Scottsdale, the Morning Squeeze is a happening brunch spot! Morning Squeeze offers traditional breakfast fare made with fresh, organic, and locally grown ingredients. Their dog-friendly patio provides a perfect opportunity for you and your pup to dine together for breakfast, lunch, or a quick cup of coffee.
BLD stands for breakfast, lunch, dinner so you know this is a place you can cover all your outdoor dining needs if you’re going to have your pet along for the experience. BLD offers chef-crafted meals that you can dine-in, or grab to go through their drive through if you’re in a real rush. In case the brunch hour isn’t your best hour- every Wednesday at BLD is ‘Dine with your Dogs Wednesday‘ so Wednesday’s from 5-8pm are $5 happy hour appetizers and $3 happy hour drinks. Pups can chow-down on options from their very own doggie-menu that includes several tasty selections.
