Dog-friendly coffee house

Leroy, the Big Pup (2004), by Seattle artist Scott Fife, is a symbol of the Tacoma Art Museum’s commitment to Northwest artists (the museum also boasts the largest public collection of glass art by Dale Chihuly). Leroy’s presence as a centerpiece in the museum’s lobby has inspired, engaged and captured visitors’ hearts and imaginations, becoming the museum’s unofficial mascot.

Added as part of of the King County Metro system in 2007, the Seattle Streetcar has done wonders for connecting South Lake Union with downtown Seattle and now connects to the region’s light rail system at Westlake Station.

C & P Coffee on California Avenue in West Seattle is one of many dog friendly coffee houses in the great Northwest, and a CityDog favorite.

Combine oat flour and baking powder; add to chicken mixture and pulse until combined. Add parsley and carrot and pulse until thoroughly distributed. Pour mixture into cake or muffin tin(s).
