In the summer this wonderfully versatile vegetarian cafe sets up tables and chairs outside, and while they don't allow smoking outside, dogs are more than welcome. They bring out water in a huge dog bowl and ask if there's anything they can bring for your dog :-)I highly recommend the food and the dog treatment.

Like a 1950's style diner. A great place if you're eating indoors, but just as great if you decide to bring your dog and eat outdoors. In a great area of downtown Stamford, they have a large sidewalk space full of tables that is very pet friendly. I've been twice with my cocker spaniel and have seen much larger and much smaller dogs both times. The second time we were given a bowl of water and we didn't even have to ask!

This is a casual spot with outdoor dining on the front sidewalk. Space is tight so it's best if your dog will lie under your table. They will bring your pet a bowl of water. Service and food here are just average.
