We are huge pet and puppy lovers over here at Empress as our pet-friendly policy may have revealed. Sure, there are plenty of pet-friendly beaches, but we wanted to give all of the dog moms and dads out there a lay of the puppy loving land in La Jolla when it comes time to enjoy a meal or a drink. Here, we pick a few of our favorites and sprinkle in some sunshine and al fresco options, too.
The Hake Kitchen & Bar
The Hake Kitchen & Bar is a wine bar that serves seafood both inside and on its outdoor patio. The ceviche and roasted duck are favorites here, as is the shaved rib eye and the restaurant's selection of Mezcal. Sophisticated k-9s only.
Cody's La Jolla
Ahoy, all Eggs Benedict addicts! Cody's La Jolla is your Benedict benediction and place to be for brunch. With its cute white picket fence, views of the ocean and out-of-this-world Crab Cakes Benedict, even your dog will be smiling. Also, try their Veggie Hash and Lobster Roll. Two paws up!
La Jolla Brewing Company
Beer and dog lovers find their happy place on the patio of La Jolla Brewing Company where the dog watching almost beats the people watching and the fire pits and house brews keep everyone toasty warm. Food-wise, go for the fish sandwich!
Once you're full, come back to your room and take a nap with your best little furbaby! We even give him his own pet bed!
