“It’s homemade turkey meat loaf loaded with veggies, oats and flax, ” customer Julie Horak said.
The menu features appetizers, entrees and desserts. But it’s not cooked for Craig and Julie; it’s for their four-legged friends, Ruby and Goldie.
Stanley’s is among the growing number of restaurants and businesses taking a pet-friendly approach. Dogs on patios are quickly becoming a normal part of outdoor business.
“There’s a large contingent of people out there who have dogs and want to bring them with them, ” Ellestad said.
For Stanley’s manager Kelli Holloway, canine cuisine seemed like the natural next step after opening up the patio to dogs.
“They’re here, they need to eat, ” Holloway said.
The menu caters to a pup’s palette with doggie favorites like pig ears and bone marrow.
But there are also options for the adventurous eater. Entrees include a turkey “mutt” loaf and a “pooched” egg brunch bowl.
“My dog isn’t used to that kind of food at home, but I guess when we come out, just like, you know, when you go out to eat, you get something a little nicer than you get at home, ” Ellestad said.
Each dish is made with organic, wholesome ingredients of lean meats, organic rice and veggies.
