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.

This blog guide was first created back in 2017, when a friend asked me if I knew of any patios that would be dog-friendly. 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. The post at the time had become a great resource for Edmontonians looking to bring their pooches with them for meals around town. 

And over the years, many, many, many more dog (pet) friendly patios emerged! 

Dog-friendly patio rules are also much more lax these days.

In fact as of May 2022, any restaurant, cafe or bar in Alberta that wants to welcome dogs or leashed pets to their patio, can do so without getting a permit!

This doesn’t mean EVERY patio that exists WILL welcome dogs/pets, you still need to check with that restaurant. But it means that many will likely allow it as they learn that they don’t need a permit, or won’t get in trouble from AHS if they don’t have a permit. Woo hoo! 

This is actually a huge deal and thanks to some of the early pioneering restaurant owners like Phoebe of Vin Room in Calgary who really worked through the processes with government to try and get their patios approved for pets! 

I should note that while I say “dog-friendly patios” and reference pups, I also recognize that in 2022  there are also a lot more outdoor cats and other pets that head out with their pawrents—so you could definitely use this as a ‘PET-friendly’ patio guide, as long as your pet (if not a dog) is leashed and well-behaved, it should function the same way for your pet.

With that said, here’s my list of dog-friendly patios and markets in our city! Edmonton has come a bit of a ways in creating more dog-friendly spaces, and hopefully there is more to come (but that’s really up to the restaurants/patio owners to ensure), so I’ll take what I can get.

Also please also don’t bring your dog to dog-friendly patios if your dog is not friendly to others :'( We know they’re still awesome—they just might not like other dogs or folks lol.

If I’m missing a local dog-friendly patio, please message or email me so I can update the post! If I’ve incorrectly labelled a restaurant as dog-friendly, please also let me know and I can remove it. If you’re planning to visit a patio, I recommend you shoot them a DM or call them in advance just to double check nothing has changed—or have a few back-up patio spots in mind in case you need to go somewhere else if the patio is full!

* they have one table outside, if you snag it, you pet is welcome there!

As mentioned, I recommend you call or message before you go just to double check that nothing’s changed, and to question to what extent the dog is allowed on, in, or around the patio. 

Please also be responsible about your dog patio adventures. 

Since writing this post back in 2017, my big dog Artie has become more anxious and aggressive around strangers and other dogs, so while we used to take him with us to patios, now in 2022, because of his temperament, we usually leave the dog patio adventures for Olive, our smaller dog who has a really easy temperament and loves being around people and other dogs. 

Don’t bring your dog to dog-friendly patios if your dog is not friendly to other people or dogs.

  • Lesley says:

    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.

  • Linda Hoang says:

    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 says:

    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 says:

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

  • Bee Dee says:

    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!

  • Brit says:

    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

  • Linda Hoang says:

    Thanks Bee! I will add it to the list!!

  • Dee says:

    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.

  • Lori says:

    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 says:

    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 says:

    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 says:

    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”

  • Shawn says:

    Lui-chi’s Espresso Downtown Rice Howard Way allows dogs on the patio and also inside the cafe!!!!

  • Juliana says:

    Both Arcadia (Manchester Square) and Odd Company (121st) allow dogs in their patio as well!

  • This is a handy list for dog owners in Edmonton! Unfortunately, my pooch isn’t super socialized. So for obvious reasons, I would not want to bring her out and have her disrupt anybody else with their dogs. But I still like to visit other pooches when I see them!

  • Adrienne Farricelli says:

    I’m a professional CPDT-KA certified dog trainer, and for the last 10 years I’ve been helping people to eliminate bad behaviors in dogs and train well behaved, obedient, loving pets…by showing them how to bring out the ‘hidden intelligence’ inside their dog.
