Dog-Friendly Patios and Markets in Edmonton

Summers in Edmonton are phenomenal.

I know I’m constantly trying to soak up the sun and spend as much time outdoors to truly take advantage of our short summer months. I’m always looking for ways to include my dogs in that outdoor fun too – and that includes seeking out dog-friendly patios and markets. My friend Chithra recently asked me if I knew of any patios that would be dog-friendly and off the top of my head I could name a few, but thought I should also dig a bit deeper and put together a blog post for all Edmonton fur-parents looking to include their pooch in their summer adventures. 

Almost all of the patios I’ve found (called and asked) that are dog-friendly, have the stipulation that you need to tie your dog on the other end of the fence/rail/post. Some patios that aren’t enclosed allow dogs right up to the table because it’s just part of the sidewalk, which is great. There were more patios that allowed dogs right into enclosed patios, but they’ve since changed this citing provincial regulations. Some patios provide dog water bowls for your pup too! It varies quite a bit. 

Here’s my list of dog-friendly patios and markets in our city – of course, these could all be WAY more dog-friendly, but that’s really up to the restaurants/patio owners to ensure, so for now – I’ll take what I can get and if this is what we can get (dog friendly-ish) in Edmonton, I’ll take it! 

I encourage you to call ahead of time just to ensure their rules haven’t changed, or see if you can reserve a table close to a railing so you can ensure you’re still close to your dog! 

Also check out my other post on how to get more dog-friendly patios approved in Alberta. It’s a follow-up to this post, and I hope you use it to encourage restaurant/patio owners to start the simple process to get a dog-friendly permit added on to existing food permits!

 not a patio or a market, but an actual restaurant for dogs! 
See the post I made about my dogs’ birthday party here.

Remember, most of these patios only allow dogs to be tied on the outer side of the fence/rail/post (so you need to make sure your patio table is close!) Cafe patios (that are not enclosed) are better for having your dog sit right up with you. 

I’d recommend giving the place a call before you go just to double check that nothing’s changed. 

So, which dog-friendly patios/markets am I missing?

I’m always looking to add to this list so please tweet or email me your suggestions!

Enjoy your summer, fur parents!!!!

    I haven’t been there yet but Farrow Sandwiches on 109 st, just north of Whyte Avenue seems pretty dog friendly. Not so much of a patio but they do have a couple picnic tables outside.

      Thanks Lesley! Ive been to Farrow many times and totally forgot about the dogs I’ve seen out at the picnic tables! Thanks! I’ve added them to the list.

  • Sarah Sinton

    The Pint off Whyte has a wonderful dog friendly patio. Even offers your pups a bowl of water. They have 2 patios. A back and front one. Just the front one allows dogs. I was there just on Sat May 20th with my little guy and there were several other dogs there too!

    • Linda Hoang

      Awesome Sarah, thanks I’ll add it to the list!

  • Bee Dee

    Wildflower downtown also has a dog friendly patio. They also offer water for your dogs. I was there last Sunday for brunch on the patio with my yorkie!

    Sally beauty allows dogs in there stores so pups don’t have to wait in cars ! I know it’s not a patio but just saying lol

  • Dee

    I beg to differ. Tying a dog to the outside of patio doesn’t mean it’s dog friendly. Quite the opposite. It’s no different than tying a dog outside while you go inside. Your are just closer to where your dog is tied. Remember to consider water access ! To my way of thinking, dog firendly businesses demonstrate it best when they providing a bowl of fresh water.

    […] since I put together a list of dog-friendly patios in Edmonton, there’s been such an incredible wave of support from the community – dog owners and […]

  • Lori

    I phoned ahead to The Needle that is on the list. They told me on the phone it was not a problem, when I got there with my small dog I was told no.
    Went to the blue chair cafe (also on the list) was told he’s only allowed on the other side of the patio. (Which is pretty much on the sidewalk) Ok I know you mentioned this at the end of your article, but I am not tying up my dog out on a busy sidewalk where people are walking by..just weird to me. If you ask me the only dog friendly thing these people are offering is a bowl of water.

    • Linda Hoang

      Hi Lori! I’m really disappointed to hear The Needle told you one thing and then went back on it. I will remove them from the list. As for a blue Plate, And others that have the rule to tie the dog on the their side of fence – it’s definitely not the preferred dog friendly route but I think it’s better than nothing! Especially if I’m able to get a table right up by that fence/rail. Good luck!

  • Kathy Butkovic

    Linda, thank-you for this list! I love it! I would also like to add that what makes places dog friendly is being a responsible pet owner. Always picking up after your dog and making sure it’s not disturbing other patrons or other dogs. I love taking our dogs to the Market on 104 but I noticed lately that lots of people just let their dogs rush up on yours or get in their face without asking. This is how problems start. Remember if you are in a public space to be aware of your dogs surroundings always and consider that not all dogs are ‘dog brave’ or ‘dog friendly’ for that matter.
    I can’t wait to check some of these places out :) Thank-you!

  • Jordan

    Noorish Patio is dog friendly.. Bring em on up if they are not toooo big and they will bring out fresh clean water for any dog, just ask. They had a dog bowl but it went “missing”

  • The Vivo Pizza ๐Ÿ• at @vivoristoranteyeg is SO tasty! Pulled chicken, signature Vivo sauce, grana padano ๐Ÿง€ Tried a lot of great dishes tonight at #VivoDowntown (behind #MacEwanU) for their new #happyhour #aperitivo menu launch including this one. Good deals, Monday to Friday 3-6 p.m., during the day on weekends too! It was also really nice to meet Vivo @ChefMedi. He's so passionate about his craft. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป And he put together a gluten-free ๐Ÿ• for @theporkgirl that was stellar! ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

  • An Instagrammable Wall blast from my past! I used to work at @globaledmonton doing a bunch of things over a few years.. video editing, web producing, news producing, writing and helping people in the Troubleshooter department! Been wanting to photograph this wall for awhile now (#IGWallsofYEG) and finally did this weekend. โ˜บ๏ธApparently it's also a #PokemonGo hot spot lol. ๐Ÿ˜…

  • Had an awesome time touring Instagrammable Walls of Chinatown / east Downtown this weekend with my co-host @britl & this great group of people! There is no shortage of things to do in Edmonton in the summer so I definitely appreciated these guys choosing an #IGWallsofYEG #photowalk! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป This wall is called #ThunderBirdAlley on 105 Ave between 96 and 97 Street. ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป Would largely go unnoticed for those walking or driving along 97 Street but definitely deserves some attention! Another walk is in the works for September, stay tuned! โ˜บ๏ธ

  • Dreaming of gelato. ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿง I was out in #SturgeonCounty tonight at the annual Sturgeon County Bounty #CulinaryCookout and this raspberry lime gelato from @davincigelato was lovely. The #SturgeonCountyBounty is such a stellar event - think Taste of Edmonton & Heritage Festival with awesome #tasteab food but more of a relaxed, less crowded environment, great portion sizes / value, that fresh country air and lovely live music! Mark your calendars for next year- add it to your summer festival list! Check my IG Stories and my pal @argenplath's feed for more scenes from the festival! ๐Ÿ˜Š
