This coffee shop is one of the best I've been to, for no other reason than I can bring my dog! The coffee was flavorful without being too bold, the staff were extremely nice and helpful, and the atmosphere was friendly and homey. I was able to enjoy my coffee, people-watch, and relax at this fun and quirky coffee shop.... More

They have the best coffee ever and they have games that you can play with you family up stairs. If you have a dog and you want coffee and something for breakfast and some other coffee shops won't let your dog in well you should go to Java dog because they are dog friendly that is why they named there...

We stayed in Wilmington for over a month and frequented many of the coffee shops - and there are a lot! One of our favorites is Java Dog. Their espresso drinks are delicious, the people who work there are so friendly and they are a dog friendly cafe. We met so many nice dogs and their owners, and our two... More

Visited Java Dog on a recent trip to Wilmington, whilst escaping the heat by visiting the Cotton Exchange! Coffee and ambiance were great, as were the staff. The shop is also dog friendly. Definitely a good spot to catch your breath from shopping!

Oh and the coffee is good too! But the lemon pound cake is so delicious...definitely worth the stop. Nice location, great atmosphere. Well worth the step inside.

Cute little place, very dog-friendly, and good coffee - not the typical chain stuff. Didn't try the pastries, but they looked good.

This is a small shop with great coffee, hot chocolate and pastries. We tried the lemon pound cake and it was excellent.

We stopped here during a brief visit to Wilmington. Although there are other coffee shops up and down the street I liked being able to go somewhere that wasn't part of a chain. The folks working there were attentive to the fact that my hot cocoa was for a child, so they didn't make it very hot. That was a... More
