What can we say? We love dogs! Carmel is a dog friendly town and is a popular destination for those that prefer to travel with their dogs. It just breaks our hearts to see dogs left in the car or tied up outside while their human companions get to have all the fun. So, we decided we would designate the Oak Tree Patio to our fellow dog lovers. We even have a special menu for our canine companions. However, not everybody loves dogs as much as we do. So, for the enjoyment of all our guests, we reserve the right to ask misbehaving pooches to return to the car.
