Since 1983, White Dog Cafe University City has been a destination in the heart of the University of Pennsylvania's campus for dining, libations, and celebrations in a trio of Victorian brownstones. The first restaurant in Philadelphia to use environmentally sustainable, organic, and local foods from farms within 50 miles, White Dog is known for warm hospitality and inspiring cuisine. 

The charming brownstones were completely renovated, providing a variety of dining rooms with whimsical dog decor, fixtures, and stunning artwork. Dine in the vibrant Living Room with the famous "Blue Dog" painting and the casual and airy Porch with reclaimed wood and birdhouses. The noble Parlor, intimate Tea Room with plush seating. The Oak Room has a massive marble table for ten, and the Den has wall-lined dogs.  Downstairs is the Wine Cellar, which features a wall of wine barrels, hanging corkscrews, and regal dog portraits, perfect for private parties. The newly expanded brownstone includes the Parlor Bar and Study and the intimate Solarium downstairs with hanging greenery.

Executive Chef Jay Ralston's menus change every season, reflecting the finest ingredients available, complemented with house-baked desserts and specialty cocktails.
