5 Portland, Maine Eateries and Café Patios for Humans and Their Puppers

Dog people know the struggle of taking your dog along for an adventure in a city. You don’t want to miss out on all of the culinary delights and adult beverages that a place like Portland, Maine has to offer, but you can’t leave your pup at home alone for that long, or worse, in the car. Luckily, Portland loves dogs, and many of the restaurants with outdoor space will welcome you and your pupper with open paws. Here are just a few of the options you and Fido will have when visiting Port City together.


The outdoor patio on Commercial Street is the perfect spot to people (and dog) watch and sip cocktails on a balmy summer evening.

The Porthole Restaurant & Pub

If you visit Portland’s largest waterfront deck at The Porthole and you don’t see a dog, you’re probably not actually at The Porthole. Dogs love this place and humans love that you can dine outside on the picnic tables with your pooch close by.

Tandem Coffee

Not only does Tandem Coffee serve up some of the most beautiful espresso creations in the city, but pups love hanging out on the covered patio outside this super hip coffee shop.

It's true. ❤️

Sisters Gourmet Deli

Who doesn’t love Sisters Gourmet Deli in Monument Square? The bright colors, the delicious sandwiches, and their adorable outdoor seating area facing the Time & Temperature building in downtown Portland is the best atmosphere for chowing down on a sandwich with your trusty puppy by your side.

Eventide Oyster Co.

Eventide Oyster Co. is decorated with plenty of awards for their cuisine, but we think they should win an award for cutest dog customers. If you’d like to bring your pup along for a brown butter lobster roll, just snag one of the tables along the sidewalk.

I'll never turn down a buttery lobster roll #samsoninmaine #MDW ( Back in Vacationland!! #thewaylifeshouldbe )
