    Super Great!

    they were super nice to my Charlie and I would totally recommend it, my girlfriend got a iced coffee which was delicious and my smoothie came out amazing! And they even give out water, treats, and even a pup cup!!!!

    Pup Cups!

    excellent place to bring your canine travel companion inside for a coffee or breakfast. The bagels and cro-nuts were delicious and another customer made us savvy to get a pup cup for our doodle - a Dixie cup of whipped cream garnished with a dog biscuit!

    You can bring Fido inside!

    Java Dog has great coffee, bagels, and bakery items. There was a bowl of fresh water outside on the side walk, and your dog is welcome to come inside and sit with you table side upstairs, in the main lobby, or right outside the store front which is inside! Great place to bring your furry friend on a hot, rainy, or cold day! I do wish they sold dog bakery items, but they did have dog bandannas available and we were welcome to raid the treat jar.

    Great Indoor Location

    was able to bring our dog inside and upstairs. we were a little nervous at first because when we walked in there were no other dogs. it was a great first stop on our day trip to relax indoors in the morning with good coffee and our pup inside. she’s a big dog and it was easy to maneuver around with her.

    Great Coffee Too!

    Had an awesome latte. Was able to bring the pup inside the cafe. She got plenty of love from the staff and yummy treats from the owner! Love this place:)

    Truely dog friendly

    Went there yesterday for the 1st time with a friend and my Standard Poodle. Staff were friendly and welcoming, coffee and bagel were good, and we could enjoy our coffee and bagels INDOORS with our furry family member, and the other furry kids who were present too! In fact, the 3 dogs present (my Poodle, a Husky and a Pyranean Mountain Dog - so all big dogs) had an awesome supervised play together too. Can't wait for our next trip to Wilmington, to go back there!

    Awesome experience

    Located next to the river, the staff was excellent and (big) dogs are allowed inside. The cold brew is awesome! Food was great also. Worth the visit!

    What a treat!

    We discovered Java Dog on a weekend trip to Wilmington. I was just amazed when I left my dog outside with my husband and the staff told me we could bring her in! Brilliant.

    Otie's fave place!

    I visit Wilmington from Charlotte quite often, and we always make it a point to stop in Java Dog because it is my pup's FAVORITE! The employees really do love fur babies, and there's always treats waiting for us:)
