Situated next to Sweetest Stitch and just around the corner from Kuba Kuba Dos, ShoreDog Cafe is a friendly little restaurant nestled in the Tuckahoe Shopping center, near the University of Richmond. In the morning, you could be lured in for a delicious cup of Lamplighter coffee or a scoop of Homestead Creamery ice cream for an afternoon pick me up. Their sandwiches and salads could bring you in for lunch, and their new menu would be perfect for a date night.

You might not expect a coffee shop to be able to offer rave-worthy entrees, but after a glass of wine, I was fully convinced this place is more than just coffee and sandwiches. (Note: For now, dinner service is only Wednesday-Sunday, so plan accordingly!)


This summer, ShoreDog Cafe hosted an event for a handful of Richmond bloggers to sip and sample our way through their new dinner menu and it did not disappoint! If you love seafood, you won’t want to miss this menu, but even the vegetarians had plenty to enjoy!


Their menu was loaded with seasonal ingredients, healthy options, and delicious comfort foods so there truly was something for everyone! If you’re looking for a spot for a cozy date, a casual business meeting, or dinner with a friend, be sure to check them out!
