Looking for a place with an outdoor patio near the beach that allows dogs, but is a little nicer than diner food (mom is very health-conscious and dad is on a strict diet for health reasons). This will also be Easter Sunday so it'd be nice to have some better food, but definitely not more than $20pp.
Also, we can't just tie the dog up outside because she's cute, small and timid (see photo) and I'm always afraid someone will want to take her. Either that or she'll freak out and make a screechy noise that sounds like someone's stomping on her.
I've checked out every dog-related post and Park Beach Cafe looks super dog-friendly, but not the type of food I'm hoping for.
Preferred neighborhoods: Huntington Beach or Long Beach (near the dog beaches), Santa Monica, Venice.
