About ShoreDog



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. 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 the several names that we were considering. As we thought through the possibilities, it occurred to us that Mallie really reminded us of 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. After several years of looking, we stumbled on a vacant storefront in the Tuckahoe Shopping Center and the dream for our 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 gourmet food, we want to bring the best of breakfast, lunch, and dinner back home to the West End.
