You don’t have to love dogs to love this shady little place on Folly. But you do have to love hearty, well-prepared breakfast and lunch fare. And hippies. It always helps to love hippies when you’re dining on Folly, but that’s beside the point. Lost Dog’s large shaded patio invites a lazy, late breakfast, one that you can enjoy in the company of your favorite pooch. While Fido scarfs the free doggie biscuits, you can savor their huevos rancheros or oversized pancakes with maple syrup. Open from 6:30 a.m.-3 p.m., there are few better places to enjoy a leisurely brunch or down a few hangover-curing mimosas, but come early on the weekends — Lost Dog is always bustling. Menu favorites include chicken salad croissants and the “fresh fish thing,” which cheekily relies on “what the cat caught today.” —Stephanie Barna DISH (Summer 2013)
