You no longer have to choose between your two greatest loves — your dog and your diet. While the state doesn’t allow dogs inside restaurants, aside from service animals, many restaurants, bars, and cafes have developed reputations for their dog-friendly decks and patios. Now that patios are abundant in Portland, many restaurants and bars have become even more pet friendly, greeting leashed pups with bones and bowls of water. Here are a number of Portland bars, restaurants, and cafes that will happily accommodate your furry companions, because let’s face it, you probably can’t fathom being away from your dog for any longer than the time it takes to down an IPA. Eater Portland also has restaurant and bar patio maps, for those of you looking for general places to dine and drink al fresco.
