There was a long period of time when dogs weren’t allowed in downtown Santa Cruz.
Those dog days are over.
Not only are dogs now welcome downtown, but many restaurants invite them too. The dog friendliness doesn’t stop there.
We’ve compiled the Dogs’ Dish, a guide to over 100 dog-friendly restaurants where you can bring your dog as your +1 in Santa Cruz County.
This list is compiled by neighborhood, town and city.
We’ve also included a map so you can easily find each dog-friendly establishment.
If you know of any dog-friendly restaurants in Santa Cruz County that aren’t listed, please feel free to let us know in the comments. Tell us where you like to go! Include a pic of your pup if you like!
