After hearing many good things about the White Dog Cafe, it was time to have lunch there to check it out for myself. First thing, plan on either using valet parking or doing a little walking. I don’t mind the walk, so I parked several blocks away and strolled in. While this place is located in an upscale strip mall, it has a distinctly decorated interior that you’ll find curious to the eye. Lots of framed images of dogs. So, let’s get to the food. Think upscale Main Line eatery. Started out with the mushroom soup as you see here:
No doubt about it, the soup is the real deal, poured from the cruet at your table. Tasty, a little sweet, and subtle mushroom flavor. Next came the main courses, including a homemade pasta you see in the next photo.
Inside that ravioli was butternut squash with smoked bacon, cranberries, and lots of other goodies. Note the glass of sangria alongside. The table next to me ordered burgers, leading to a case of burger envy on my part. Hence, I ordered the double cheddar version for myself. Here it is:
You see the two kinds of cheddar perfectly melted over that beast. The usual fixings, tomato, grilled onion, and pickle as well. The fries are in the cup and needed some work. A little soggy. This lunch cost some money, but it truly is home made. Excellent service. Fine people watching. Bring plenty of cash. Enjoy every meal! (PS: Parking is a nightmare. Use the valet or find a spot several blocks away and walk in.)
