Sun Dog Cafe

Relax carefree at Sun Dog Cafe, where the food is tasty and the mood casual. The casualness does not take away from quality of offerings, however. The food here includes dishes that you would expect to find at a much more formal restaurant.


The diverse menu is split into several sections that let guests choose from salads, tacos, rotis, gourmet handmade pizza, and plenty of seafood entrees. However, some of their more popular entrees include their fish tacos and Shrimp Very Cruz, which is jumbo shrimp with a dash of blackening seasoning rolled up in a flour tortilla with jack and cheddar cheeses and topped with mango vinaigrette as well as chipolte barbecue sauce.

Sun Dog Cafe is a popular café that happens to specialize in American cuisine. As far as service and setting, you can expect the formality to be very casual. Diners are welcome to come by to enjoy brunch, lunch, and dinner, so your family can sample their cuisine at almost any meal.


Located in the courtyard of Mongoose Junction, dining at Sun Dog Cafe takes place under green umbrellas in an environment of native stone and mahogany with lush terraces. There are just 10 tables with green umbrellas to keep you cool overlooking the courtyard for an intimate and relaxed feel. There is also an open air bar overlooking the courtyards where eclectic shops and galleries provide browsing and buying opportunities.
