15 Restaurants With Secret Menu Items For Your Furry Best Friend. I Had No Idea!

One for me…one for you!

More and more malls and restaurants have become pet friendly but this really ‘takes the cake.’ Check out these restaurants that cater to our canines. These pups are living life to the fullest with their human buddies. LOVE IT!!

Cafes and restaurants that cater to cats and dogs in the past usually had an agenda…adoption. Which is GREAT! But if you already have a furry friend, maybe you would be interested in just dining or grabbing a snack with your buddy. Well here are 15 restaurants that encourage you to do just that!! Check’em out.

(Note: your dog might have allergies, so check with your vet before you offer your pooch a cool whip latte.)

1) Starbucks

On their "secret menu," Starbucks has a Puppuccino. It's an espresso-shot-sized paper cup full of whip cream. Some dogs are bothered by dairy, and your dog should probably not have one of these sugary treats every day, but for special occasions it's fun.

4) Sonic

It makes sense that Sonic Drive-In would be pet-friendly since you never even step foot inside. They're set up so that you order and eat in your car, or pop out and eat at their outside dining area. If you have your pet with you, they'll often bring you a doggie treat so you won't eat alone.
