dog reading a menuThe Forge in the Forest has been a part of Carmel's history since 1944, but in 2001, the employees of the Forge made some history of their own. Rather than let this historic property close its doors forever, the employees banded together and bought the business. With hard work, a beloved Carmel landmark was saved from "becoming history" and remains a popular gathering spot in Carmel. 

The Forge is well known for a special doggie menu featuring the "quarter hounder." You might want to reserve a seat next to the fire, as the patio can get chilly after dark.

Carmel-by-the-Sea is nirvana for dogs and the people who love them, and that's as true when it comes to restaurants as it is with the town's glorious leash-free beach. Start your morning with a scone and a mocha latte savored at an outdoor table at Carmel Valley Roasting Company—or, should you care to greet the day with a scenic journey along 17-Mile Drive, pull off at the historic Lodge at Pebble Beach and treat yourself to breakfast (or lunch) at a dog-friendly table on the terrace of the Gallery Café, a favorite with early risers and, later in the day, those who relish a good old-fashioned milkshake. more »
