Dog-Friendly Vacations and Dog-Friendly Restaurants and Cafes
Dog-Friendly Folly Beach, South Carolina | Lost Dog Cafe
When the family headed to Folly Beach, South Carolina, we knew we had to visit The Lost Dog Cafe. I mean, how could a dog adventurer like Dexter not eat at an outdoor cafe that loves dogs?! We stayed in a dog-friendly cottage in Folly Beach and were just down the road from The Lost Dog Cafe, so we checked it out on one of our first days.
This quaint dog-friendly cafe was a great, laid-back beach cafe. Affectionately referred to as “The Dog,” this pet-friendly restaurant really felt like home. The staff was extremely friendly and welcoming to Dexter, and even encouraged friendly mingling. The Lost Dog Cafe is open for breakfast and lunch 7 days a week.
And the menu? The large menu offers something for everyone. Order a huge breakfast burrito, bagel sandwich, fish, wrap, salad, shrimp and grits, or my favorite, a mouthwatering cinnamon roll. You knew I would eat something sweet—I do love my sugary foods. Don’t forget about the drinks. They offer custom blends of coffee roasted specifically for The Lost Dog Cafe. If coffee isn’t your style, you can try chai tea, hot chocolate, or fresh lemonade.
During our week-long stay, we became regulars at The Dog. And just how did they come up with their name? When the owners were creating the cafe, they didn’t know what they were going to name it. Their dog, Hocus, ended up taking off and disappearing for a while. When Hocus returned and was bounding toward home, the name clicked and their logo was created. I’m obviously so happy Hocus found her way safely home.
The next time you and your dog are in Folly Beach, you need to check out The Lost Dog Cafe. And they even have a wall of dogs and gift shop!
