Getting out the door for a lunch date can be pretty hard when you've got big, sad puppy eyes watching you go. Luckily, Toronto is full of restaurants and bars that would love to seat both you and your furry friend! Avoid the sad puppy stare by taking your dog with you to one of these Toronto's dog-friendly restaurants.
Whether your dog is lounging by the fence next to your table, or right up at the bar with you, you'll both have a "pawsitively" wonderful time. Your pupper is sure to meet lots of friends at these establishments, and might be lucky enough to score a little treat for itself too!
