Maggie with a Corona

Not sure she’s the coolest dog in town, but she’s cute and the Corona makes this photo food blog worthy — It’s Maggie, my sister’s dog fitting-in well with the boys at a recent holiday party.

November 10th, 2014 No comments

Leon at Lazy Dog Cafe

His name is Leon (above) and he just turned 8 — We celebrated him and his birthday at the Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar at Cerritos Mall. ¬†It’s an ideal place for a Dog’s Birthday or any day, since dogs are allowed on their patio and served a complimentary Bowl of Water.

It’s a good place for adults too, though it was Leon’s day, but we pay. ūüėČ

Cerritos Patio

We tried the Sangria Sampler — The White Peach Sangria (middle) was my favorite.

The Lazy Dog Hand Crafted Drafts Sampler hits the human spot too.

Beer Flight

Leon chose the Grilled Chicken Breast and Brown Rice from the Dog Menu.

Leon's Birthday Dish at Lazy Dog Cafe

He ate all quickly, much how he eats everything, and appeared to like it.

We had the Brick Oven Spinach & Sundried Tomato Cheese Dip (below), which could use more Spinach and Sun Dried Tomatoes, but the Cheese combination is good.

Spinach Dip

And the Chipotle Chicken Quesadilla — Overall, Lazy Dog’s food is¬†consistently good.

Afterwards we went for a walk along Dog Beach in Huntington Beach.

Pets And People Escape Heat & Eat In Lake Arrowhead.

September 16th, 2012 No comments

Day vay-kay to get away from the persistent heat — We escaped to Lake Arrowhead and watched the temperature go down as we drove up the mountain.¬† Awe,¬†oooo, wow, awe…

Cheers to that — We then enjoyed food baked for various visiting¬†and local species.

It was Beer and Pizza at Lake Arrowhead Village Pizza for we the people.

And a special gourmet treat for Leon (Our Pet Treat Judge) from Three Dog Bakery nearby.

The Pizza was good, but we were most impressed with the extra frosty mugs — Cool stuff!

The view was beautiful and weather comfortable with an umbrella.

Every bite of all shown was consumed and followed by a partial walk around the lake.

Lake Arrowhead, so¬†close, yet so far away — Take the high road to cooler, fresh ground.

Lake Arrowhead Village is extra happening during Oktoberfest — It starts later this month.

The Park Bench Cafe Off Goldenwest: It’s For The Dogs (And You).

May 14th, 2012 No comments

The Park Bench Cafe — An outdoor Cafe in Huntington Beach that caters to dogs and people.

A serene place for Breakfast or Lunch — Dogs are treated to Canine Cuisine and people pay.

We had the Club House Sandwich pictured at top and the Supreme Melt below.

And Leon had the Peanut Butter Puppy.

Water is available for the Dogs.

And the surrounding park and lake are picturesque for all.

The French Fries are extra good.

Back view of The Park Bench Cafe and its outdoor seating.

And view from car, before backing out to head for nearby dog beach to soak in the sun.

Dog day afternoon without¬†a bank robbery —¬†I see why it always looks busy when I drive by.

The Unsophisticated Palate: Don’t Let A Dog Decide What’s For Dinner.

May 14th, 2011 No comments

Always contemplating what’s for dinner (on the ground) — Unsophisticated indeed.

Scarily this dog, Maggie eats everything, books, toys, clothes,¬†bugs, etc. — Won’t gross you out with the details on¬†how all was discovered.¬† Let’s just say that all is now kept out of reach.

Togarashi Edamame Beans

Welcome to Irvine —¬†The Lazy Dog Cafe.¬†¬†We’re lucky to have you.¬† The Togarashi Edamame Beans (above) lead this post, because we think they’re the best Edamame in Orange County.¬†¬†Wash your hands good before eating ’em, so you can lick your fingers.¬† Their smoky flavor is amazing.¬† My friend couldn’t stop talking about them, thus¬†they made one of the biggest impressions.

Trio of Hummus

The Lazy Dog Cafe¬†at The Market Place in Irvine just opened a few days ago.¬† Nibbles of Tidbits happily attended a pre-opening sneak peek and we¬†now report about¬†a small portion of what’s on their menu.¬† To sum it all up, we were¬†impressed with everything¬†— The service, decor, friendliness, food and prices.¬† Here’s what we had… Trio of Hummus Dips which includes a Walnut Pesto, Sundried Tomato and Traditional Hummus served with Flatbread, Cucumbers and Tomatoes.

Spinach & Sundried Tomato Cheese Dip

Spinach & Sundried Tomato Cheese Dip with Jack, Parmesan and Swiss Cheeses blended with fresh Baby Spinach, Garlic and Sundried Tomatoes.

Kitchen Area -- Food Pick Up

Our sneak peek included a tour of the bustling kitchen and dinner with fellow Orange County Food Bloggers.  It was super fun to meet Scott from Foodie in Disguise and see Christian again from OC Mex Food.  And Griffin Eats OC posts another interesting report on The Lazy Dog Cafe.

Cast Iron Idaho Trout

Continuing with the food… We enjoyed the Cast Iron Idaho Trout that’s¬†baked in a cast iron skillet with Sea Salt Roasted Vegetables, Baby Potatoes and topped with a Citrus Walnut Brown Butter Sauce.

Bacon Wrapped Coulotte Steak

Bacon Wrapped Coulotte Steak (best part of the Sirloin) served over Confetti Veggies and Mashed Potatoes with Burgundy Wine Sauce.

Mushroom & Onion Flat Iron Steak

Mushroom & Onion Flat Iron Steak topped with sauteed Madeira Mushrooms and Onions, served with Mashed Potatoes and Confetti Veggies.

Beer Battered Fish N' Chips

Beer Battered Fish N’ Chips made with Coldwater Cod and served with a Horseradish Tartar Sauce, Asian Slaw and French Fries.

Baja California Burger with Sweet Corn Salad

Baja California Burger with Guacamole, Ortega Chilis, Jack Cheese and a Jalapeno & Lime Aioli with a side of Sweet Corn Salad.

The Bar

The Bar Top is spectacular — I could stare at it all day, but probably wouldn’t get much accomplished.¬† Unfortunately I don’t remember the cool specifics about it, but ‘it ain’t no laminate’ on top.¬† We’ll¬†ask our resident Interior Designer, Guest Blogger Bonnie to add a footnote about it.

Also pictured above is the Iceberg Wedge Salad, Chicken Tortilla Soup and a¬†Cobbler — By the time the desserts came along, I was stuffed and had to get a move on, thus don’t have a clear report on the best part of the meal for some.¬† I sure wish I could take a bite now.

Lazy Dog Cafe Dessert

Cinnamon and Sugar Pizza

Baked Brownie Pie

The view below is from the entrance looking into the bar.¬† It’s a big, cozy place with a menu to satisfy all tastes, even a dogs.

Entrance Looking Into Bar

Dogs are welcome on the patio and even get their own menu upon request.¬† Not yet mentioned is The Lazy Dog Cafe’s Drink Menu — Who has time, fresh¬†Mojitos, Margaritas, Lemonades and more, oh my.¬† I’ll go to¬†The Lazy Dog Cafe anytime!

Three Dog Bakery (Barkery) For Dogs.

January 23rd, 2009 1 comment

tommy-bs-gyro-map-005Newport loves its Dogs, so it’s a perfect location for the Three Dog Bakery.¬† It’s a chain, but this one is in the Corona Del Mar Plaza in Newport Beach.¬† It’s near Fashion Island, an outdoor shopping center that welcomes Dogs.¬† It’s hard to go there without seeing one.¬† The Three Dog Bakery ( I like to call it Barkery) bakes cute treats that are easily digested by Dogkind.¬† I’m not sure, but this location may be their best franchise.

Three Dog Bakery in Lake Arrowhead Village.

September 25th, 2008 5 comments

It’s already Octoberfest at Lake Arrowhead Village — Now and every weekend starting at noon through all of October.¬† And there’s no¬†admission¬†fee.¬† We were at the family cabin (nearby) last weekend with a couple Dogs, Holly and Maggie, respectively below.¬†

Since we cooked up a storm for ourselves, we picked up a few treats from the Three Dog Bakery for the pets.¬† Dogs are always popular in Lake Arrowhead Village, but you can’t bring them inside the roped Octoberfest/Band Area — You should know that if you’re a pet owner who also wants to party, because you can’t bring your Beer outside the ropes.

And we always bring Peanuts for the Blue Jays.¬† We just put a bunch¬†on the cabin deck and they¬†fly right in to get them.¬†¬†It’s¬†pretty cool.¬† They’re so beautiful too.

And here’s the Dogs playing in the cabin.¬† They were tugging over a stuffed Gorilla until we gave them¬†the treats from the Three Dog Bakery.¬† I should also mention that there’s a Three Dog Bakery in Newport Beach too, since that’s where I live — Not at the Barkery, near Newport. ūüôā
