This place is a family place. The staff was SO kind to our young children. Different foods, yet something for even picky eaters. Will be back! Dessert was excellent!!

Dog (and some cat) items are for sale in the front of the store, but the real treasure happens in the kitchen. Arion Canniff has credentials to be cooking anywhere in the world in a five star restaurant (and has), but has chosen Joseph, Oregon to present his culinary talents. The menu changes every week. This week was in honor of Chinese New Year. We were visiting with friends who live in Joseph that introduced us to this treat. For starters had Won Ton Soup, Egg Rolls, and Seaweed salad (fantastic). Entrees included Orange Chicken (not your typical presentation), Longevity Noodles and shrimp (you had choices of your protein), and Singapore Noodles with two of the biggest shrimp I'd ever seen (all done to perfection). We had to have dessert! The hits kept on coming....Macha Cheesecake, Thai Tea Cheesecake, and some of the best Bread Pudding I've ever tasted. All in all it was ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! His wife Amy handles the store and the front of the house. She is friendly, knowledgeable and can handle the six tables and bar area with expertise! Everything is cooked fresh. What a find in downtown Joseph. We'll be back!

The food is always fabulous! The owners are friendly and very nice! The merchandise is unique and fun! Everything (including the food) is reasonably priced! The Matcha Cheese Cake is incredibly light and unexpectedly delish! Different menu every weekend, we find ourselves dining there once a week! When visiting Joseph you MUST visit The Dog Spot! Every dish served tastes as amazing as it looks! You won't be disappointed!

Our local "go-to" spot. The food is thoughtfully prepared and made by someone who genuinely enjoys good food. Not your typical small town burger and fries type of place. You won't be disappointed.

The font of this space is all dog products: poop bags, leashes, reflective items for collars, treats, even beer for dogs. The owner has a small butdifferent menu each day, much of it Asian inspired. On the day I went the offerings were too spicy for this wimp-mouth, but he cooked mine to order. My only complaint was the irritating music they played.
