I would highly recommend the White Dog, Haverford for happy hour. You can sit outside if it is nice, at the bar or at bar booths. The drinks and food offerings for happy hour are great and the service is very good.

Had Easter brunch at The White Dog Cafe today and couldn’t have been happier with service, food, and experience. We were greeted with happy faces and waited about 2 minutes for our table (made reservation). Our waitress Bree couldn’t have been nicer and more accommodating....More
