    My pup Lilo was treated like a princess! She loved having her own meal and mom and dad enjoyed mamosas and eggs Benedict with fried soft shell crab! It was an amazing experience for humans and their four legged amigos!!!!!

    Excellent service!

    Very dog friendly! We brought our golden retriever here for breakfast. The patio is covered, had fans, heaters, and what looked like a bug screen depending on the season. They had a dog menu, all dog meals come on a complimentary frisbee. Our dog had a fresh bowl of water within seconds of being seated. This place was amazing. Our waitress was friendly and very attentive to us and our dog. We will be coming back!

    One Of The Best

    Super pet friendly. Every time we visit Virginia Beach we stop here at least once. They serve you fur kiddo their food on a frisbee you get to keep, bowls of water, and the staff is always happy to see pups.

    If you’re looking to start the day off right then you’ve found the spot.

    Took care of my doggie

    We sat outside on the covered patio with our Terrier. Every one was very friendly. My dog enjoyed his doggie treats & a big bowl of water. Our food was served hot & pretty tasty....just need to step up the flavor of the hollandaise sauce. We will revisit here.

    Good to furbabies

    They will definitely accommodate your furbaby outside and provide a large water dish, so that's a plus.

    For humans, food is okay, mediocre and same for drinks.

    Great Food and Super Friendly to our dog

    We stopped for brunch and enjoyed an awesome meal that exceeded our party's expectations. Our Standard sized Golden-Doodle was greeted with enthusiasm and treated like a king with a fresh water bowl and milk bones. Will definitely recommend to our friends and stop by again our our next trip to Virginia Beach.

    The staff was wonderful and loved our husky, brought a huge bowl of ice water and a treat for lady, as soon as we set down. The owner came out to give lady another treat before we left also. But the food.......even BETTER!! 10 out of 10 for sure. Well definitely be back, most likely tomorrow morning. :)

    We had a great time for breakfast at Citrus with our dog. THey have a really attractive place that feels welcoming and tropical. And fantastic food at a reasonable price. Plus they bring your pup a bowl of water and a treat. Very friendly staff goes out of their way to make you happy. Best breakfast in VAB!

    Our dog was given the royal treatment at Citrus! The waitstaff brought him a huge bowl of water and dog treats, and he got many pets and lots of attention from them. They have a fantastic soft-shell crab eggs benedict, and very tasty mimosas. Everyone at our table thoroughly enjoyed their brunch and our dog was very happy to be with us.
