There are a few spots around Downtown Brenham that have sidewalk tables to enjoy a bite to eat with your pups.

Home Sweet Farm – An outdoor garden with picnic tables is a perfect setting for you to enjoy a bite to eat, a cold beer and live music at outdoor picnic tables in the biergarten.

    You do need to check witth each business before ypu leave home with your dog….I did send a message to Home Sweet Farm to double check the dog friendly rating and needs to be specified that your SMALL friendly dog is allowed only. We have collies and although they are very calm friendly dogs, they are too big to be allowed. I will send a message to Ninety Six West next, as we plan on eating there and do not want to rely on possible incomplete information, otherwise will be a disappointing trip to Brenham.

    Where is the dog park?

    • Jenny Mills

      Hi Linda. The dog park is north of Brenham on Hwy 36, just about a mile or so outside of the main edge of town. You can click on the dog park link in the blog to get more info. ~ Jenny 🙂

    I was there for fam vacation. We were there on mon and tues. A lot of restaurants are closed on mon or Tues. And really there are not many places at all that have patio sitting areas for the dogs.

      Hi Missy, thanks for your comment AND for coming to Brenham! There are two restaurants closed on Monday in Downtown, but four others that are open, plus many outside the downtown area. We hope you will come back and enjoy those!

      As for patio seating for the pups, Downtown space is tricky on a Monday, but for a couple of people and one dog, you can make it work. Home Sweet Farm is a great option most nights. Just a mile from downtown is Mobius Cafe, also a great option now with comfy seating outdoors. Plus, you can food to go and enjoy it in the wonderful dog park just north of town.

      Hope to see you again soon!
