SILVER LAKE (FOX 11) - America's first dog cafe has opened in Silver Lake.
The Dog Cafe, which held its grand opening on Thursday, is a coffee shop that also lets customers cuddle with adoptable rescue dogs.
Customers can order coffee or tea in the cafe and then play with pups in the dog lounge next door -- all of which are in need of a forever home.
Have you heard the news? The Dog Cafe's official grand opening is April 7! That means you'll soon enjoy lattes, pour-over coffee and flavored lemonades along with your puppy cuddles. We'll be offering free drink upgrades the first week of our opening, and are now taking reservations on our website. 🐶☕️ #coffeecupsandrescuepups #thedogcafe #pupsncoffee
"The Dog Cafe offers a comfortable and fun space for humans and dogs to hang out with each other, away from overcrowded shelters, which can provoke fear and aggression in perfectly adoptable pups," the website reads. "In addition to helping worthy pups find homes, we also offer the opportunity for people unable to have pets of their own to spend quality time with furry friends (and vice versa) without the commitment of adoption."
There is an entrance fee of $10 per person to reserve a 55-minute time slot with the dogs -- and includes one beverage.
