The Blue Sky Cafe is a delightful place for lunch, with oodles of collegiate atmosphere. Just be sure to get there before the college kids from Washington and Lee University fill up the place.

The menu is both diverse and offers a variety of flavors....not a dull deli style shop. Service is friendly and while it was busy when we were there...we ordered relatively quickly and the food came out in a reasonable time frame. Both indoor and outdoor...More

I didn't see any when we were there but I'm pretty sure I saw a dog water bowl. Lots of dogs around town so I am pretty sure it would be a yes.
