Being a shore dog is a state of mind.

ShoreDog Cafe is an unexpected result of our family's hope to find a small business near our home in Richmond's West End. After several years of looking, we stumbled on a vacant storefront in the Tuckahoe Shopping Center and the idea of a café was planted.

Our family has always loved great coastal cuisine, whether during our many years living in San Francisco, or more recently on Virginia's Eastern shore and in Richmond. To us, ShoreDog represents an opportunity to offer a great farm to table menu anchored by hand-crafted beverages and freshly caught seafood. From lattes made your way to perfectly seared scallops, we want to bring the best of breakfast, lunch, and dinner home to the West End.

The name of our cafe, "ShoreDog", is how we affectionately referred to our Boykin spaniel, Mallie, who passed away in 2016. ShoreDog was one of eight names that we were considering. As we thought through each one of them it occurred to us that Mallie really represented everything that we loved about the Eastern Shore -- locally grown organic food, beautiful vistas, and friendly faces. That notion tied in very nicely with our mission statement, which is to create a neighborhood meeting place where local folks can bond over great food and great conversation in a casual yet elegant environment.
