In Boston, a sunny day is not complete without a delicious meal or cocktail on the patio. Of course, man’s best friend loves the warm weather as well, but not every place allows pooches to hang out with the patrons. Here are three spots that have their welcome mats and doggie treats ready to go.
The Terrace at Tamo Bistro & Bar | 1 Seaport Ln.
All summer long, the Seaport Hotel’s Tamo Terrace welcomes furry friends for Cocktails and Canines, held on Wednesdays through August from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. They roll out the red carpet with plenty of fresh and organic dog treats, plus a delightful selection of human-only cocktails.
The Yard at the Liberty Hotel | 215 Charles St.
The Yard at the Liberty Hotel hosts Yappier Hour every Wednesday night from April through October. From 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., enjoy a cocktail from the full bar while your dog sips a pup-tini. A snack menu from Clink seals the deal, though the comfy couches certainly don’t hurt.
Flour Bakery + Cafe | 1595 Washington St.
Of course, it’s easy enough to create your own puppy picnic by taking advantage of the patio spaces all around Boston. Start the day off right with a latte and a sticky bun at the South End location of Flour, where dogs can sun out on the patio.

This article is part of Amanda Maguire’s Vegan Guide to Boston, which profiles Boston’s best vegan products and businesses.
One of the biggest concerns in going vegan is the prospect of having to give up your favorite comfort foods: the baked macaroni and cheese, the burgers with all the toppings, the old-fashioned milk shakes too thick to drink with a straw.
Fear not, because Veggie Galaxy Diner & Vegan Bakery (450 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge) has you covered. Owned by Adam Penn, Veggie Galaxy serves up plant-based meals that will take you right back to your childhood. Well, assuming your childhood included delicious meals made from scratch, right down to the burger buns and ketchup. I paid a visit to Veggie Galaxy to chat with Penn about his epic diner food and what makes it so noteworthy.
GROUPON: What is Veggie Galaxy's best-selling menu item?
ADAM PENN: Our best-selling item since the beginning has been the Kendall Square Burger.
[Editor’s note: It’s a black-bean or mushroom-chickpea burger topped with beer-battered onion rings, roasted red pepper purée, roasted garlic mayo, and baby arugula.]
G: Could you tell us a little about the inspiration behind this dish and whether you initially expected it to be so popular?
AP: As a vegetarian/vegan diner, we knew from the beginning that there would always be some tension regarding … healthy food versus traditional comfort food. The Kendall Burger, topped with giant deep-fried onion rings, was our nod to the comfort food side of things, and it quickly became clear that that's what most of our customers are looking for. We still try to provide some healthy options as well, but most of our customers come to us because we're first and foremost a diner.
G: Are there any new menu additions you're particularly excited about? I noticed you offer Blue Plate Specials each week.
AP: Our most recent weekly Blue Plate Special is vegan chicken and waffles. It [was] a customer request a while back, and we finally got around to doing it. It's been more popular than we even imagined, so we extended it to a second week and are now planning to put it on our late-night menu. … We also recently added a Meatless Monday meatball sub, which is one of my personal favorites.
G: What makes Veggie Galaxy's food taste like home?
AP: Pretty much everything is prepared from scratch, including items that people at home would normally just buy from the grocery store, like our condiments, our seitan, and our burger buns. So, in our opinion, it's better than home.
G: Why did you opt to go plant-based with your menu and strictly vegan with your baked goods?
AP: The reasons for going vegetarian and vegan are pretty well known at this point, and it's not something we like to preach about. We're providing vegetarians and vegans the opportunity to enjoy classic diner foods without the meat. While we do have dairy and eggs on the menu, pretty much anything can be made vegan. We wanted to make sure vegans could enjoy our desserts, too, so we left the eggs and dairy out of those altogether.
G: What has been your best moment as a business owner at Veggie Galaxy?
AP: I don't know if I can point to one best moment. When we have a full dining room of happy customers, I can look back on all the effort that has been put in to get to this point and feel content in knowing that we're doing exactly what we set out to do.
G: When you're not making french toast stuffed with vanilla-nut vegan cream cheese, grilled corned-beef seitan reubens, and lemon meringue pie (my personal favorite), what are you cooking at home?
AP: Neither my wife nor I are really cooks. When we do cook, we keep it simple—herbed roasted vegetables over couscous is a favorite. I'm personally a big fan of pasta, so pasta and veggie meatballs are a favorite of mine. Though I have to admit that at home, as opposed to at the restaurant, we just buy the meatballs from the store.

If you look at the ground in downtown Boston, chances are you might see a red line beneath your feet. This crimson path, famously known as the Freedom Trail, snakes from Boston Common up to the glinting dome of the State House, as many Bostonians already know. It travels past the Old South Meeting House, meanders through Faneuil Hall, and then winds through the North End, eventually leading over the bridge into Charlestown. Created in 1951, the Freedom Trail links all the city’s major historical sites together and makes them easy to visit for residents and tourists alike. But you may not know that there are also some pretty darn delicious food spots along the way. Here are a few:
Fuel Up in Beacon Hill
While visitors tend to flock to the Faneuil Hall area for fast food, I’d urge you to break away from the crowds and check out Piperi Mediterranean Grill (1 Beacon St.), located across the street from King’s Chapel and Burying Ground. Everything on the casual spot’s menu—whether it’s falafel, a full-on mezze plate, or a flavorful salad—is incredibly fresh, as the chefs make all of their dishes in small batches. The menu also accommodates vegetarian, gluten-free, and other diets, and the plates can be customized to fit your cravings. Ample portions and energy-boosting fare will definitely keep your spirits up for a full day of exploring.
Cool Down in the North End
For obvious reasons, the Freedom Trail is very popular in the summertime. Boston’s summer temps can soar into an uncomfortable territory, which makes cooling off a necessity. In my mind, there is only one option when the heat is bearing down and refreshment is needed: gelato from Caffe Paradiso (255 Hanover St.). The trail will take you right past it, and it would probably be an offense to our forefathers if you didn’t stop and have a taste of the gelato, especially my favorite flavor, pistachio. This sweet treat is sure to keep you cool through your journey.
Unwind with Wine in Charlestown
The best way to end a day on the Freedom Trail is dinner at the Navy Yard Bistro and Wine Bar (1 First Ave.). This little tucked-away gem offers incredible food, from appetizers such as buttermilk-fried oysters and duck wings to entrees like my personal favorite, a rum- and rosemary-brined pork chop so succulent and flavorful that you’ll feel like you’ve gone to pork heaven. Beyond the food, however, there is an impressive wine list, which won acclaim from Wine Spectator. The list is a perfect combination of affordable and splurgy, with a glass or bottle for every taste and price point. The bistro is cozy and inviting, and with something for everyone, it’s a delicious place to relax after a long walk through the city.
