Hit the paw-tio at these dog-friendly restaurants around Maple Grove.
Feeling thirsty but you don’t want to leave your furry friend behind? Whether you’re craving a coffee or you have an ice cold beer on the brain, Maple Grove has pup-friendly spots where you can quench your thirst. Here are three area businesses with some bark.
Daily Dose Cafe and Espresso
With a menu ranging from espresso to paninis to wine, Daily Dose Cafe and Espresso has a little something for everyone, including dogs. According to owner Ben Havn, not only does the cafe have a dog friendly patio, but it hosts adoption events as well.
“During nice weather months, we host monthly adoption events for Healing Hearts Rescue,” Havn says. “It is really fun to see dogs that got adopted out of those events on our patio later on.”
Havn shares that the Daily Dose staff loves dogs. “I love bringing my own dogs with me,” he says. “And I look for [other] places I can bring them.”
Omni Brewing Company
Not only are dogs allowed on the patio at Omni Brewing Company, they are also welcomed in the taproom. Founder and CFO Justin Walsh shares the reasoning behind why Omni Brewing Company is dog friendly.
“We believe in being dog friendly as a convenience to our guests who may want the company of their furry companions during their visit,” he says. “We also have policies in place to ensure those dogs are well behaved and not interrupting other guest experiences as well. Both fit into our mission of being a welcoming environment for all.”
Elm Creek Brewing Co.
Rain or shine, pups are allowed at Elm Creek Brewing Co. “With being dog friendly on our patios, we encounter a handful of different patrons,” says Molly McGough, taproom manager and event coordinator. “These patrons can be young, old, families who all bring their puppies, older dogs and sometimes even cats to be included in the fun.”
Elm Creek Brewing Co. is close to the dog off-leash area in Elm Creek Park Reserve. “People always stop by after to enjoy a beverage on our patio,” McGough says.
According to McGough, the space also has heated igloos on the patio that are “comfy and cozy for furry friends during the cold months.”
The brewery is also involved with Sidewalk Dog, an online website that features a beer booklet offering free beverages to patrons who bring their dogs into the taproom.
