The Roasting Plant maintains its dog friendliness as much as the Health Department will allow.  The staff keeps a stash of dog treats behind the counter, free to any dog owner who asks.  They also installed a hitch for leashes right outside the front door.  The large glass doors and windows make it easy to keep an eye on your pet from just about anywhere inside the tiny shop.  And if you plan to stay a while, outdoor benches lining the front of the Roasting Plant make it easy and pleasant to sip your coffee next to your pooch.

Plenty of dog owners (and dog lovers) frequent the Roasting Plant, so the atmosphere is friendly and social.  The variety of foot traffic at the bustling intersection of 11th Street, Greenwich Avenue, and 7th Avenue South makes for entertaining people- and dog-watching.  Stop by on your next stroll through the West Village and enjoy some quality coffee and quality time with your pet.
