In a neighborhood loaded with high-end places serving $8 lattes, Muddy Paw is a welcome relief. It’s a dog-friendly spot on Sunset in Silver Lake with a great outdoor dining room. You can still get a cup of coffee here for $2.50, and additionally, a portion of all their profits go to local animal shelters. It’s not the most glamorous spot in the neighborhood, but any place that lets you sit with your three bulldogs on a patio with free Wi-Fi all day should be near the top of your list.
