This was our third visit to this restaurant, one lunch and now two dinners. All three occasions have been very pleasant with attentive service with very good food at a reasonable price. This is a neighborhood restaurant offering good value. I recommend you give it a try for nice relaxing meal.

Have eaten here twice for lunch and both times the food and service were fantastic. Definitely try the white cheddar grits, but come early as they sell out quickly. The bread is delicious and you can buy a loaf to bring home. Will definitely keep going back to the cafe as we enjoy the food and the funky atmosphere.

Everything here is good and I especially love the appetizer of buffalo shrimp. My only wish is that the tables were a little bigger. For 4 of us with appetizers and the bread they bring, and drinks, its a bit crowded!

Very Bad Service - Went for Sunday brunch today. The place was crowded. We were told the kitchen was backed up but we were not in a hurry, so no problem yet. We placed our order, waited about 50 minutes at least for the food. Could only get the server's attention once to refill my coffee cup. As soon as... More

We tried the 2 Dog Cafe today, for lunch. It was around 1:30 & some of the daily specials were already sold out. I really wanted the fresh made meatball sub on fresh baked roll but it was a goner. I ordered the "squealer". A thinly sliced bbq pork sammy with a home made bbq sauce that had a hint... More

I came here for lunch and what a disappointment it was. I ordered chicken and it was dry, flavorless and tiny. The black bean soup is nothing more than boiled beans. The asparagus was old and tough. What a disappointment. Never again.

I love 2 Dog! Fabulous, creative food, interesting art, and a wonderful atmosphere that makes you feel like part of the family. A true local restaurant that uses locally sourced ingredients as much as possible.

One of my favorite restaurants in Gainesville for lunch. Always great food prepared in interesting combinations. The Salad Meal gives the diner great choices each day from the blackboard. Some of my favorites on the daily menu are The Rosa, Chicken Avocado Quesadilla, Salads with their homemade River Ranch dressing. Also, my family's number one pick from Sunday brunch. Dinner...

Nice little place to go when you just want to break away from the cookie cutter type restaurants. Food was great, server was awesome and atmosphere was quaint. Also a farm to table type place. I had the pasta jambalaya. Very good portion, seasoning was just about right and I walked away feeling quite satisfied with the dish.
