10 Restaurants & Coffee Shops with “Secret” Menu Items for Dogs

Wanting to take your dog out to dinner? Here are ten restaurants with menu items just for four-legged patrons.

#1 – Starbucks

On their “secret menu,” Starbucks has a Puppuccino. It’s an espresso-shot-sized paper cup full of whip cream. Some dogs are bothered by dairy, and your dog should probably not have one of these sugary treats every day, but for special occasions it’s fun.

If you are lucky enough to live near an In ‘N’ Out, you can order your dog a “pup patty,” a plain hamburger patty without the salt, put in its very own doggy bag for your furry best friend.
