Check out several spots we’ve spotted in Hoboken and Jersey City offering up treats and drinks for dogs.

Italian café eats aren’t the only thing Alessio’s offers – bring a four-legged friend next time you stop in for a slice and gelato because the shop also offers whipped cream for them.

A local favorite for a reason and a regular at Pier 13, Amanda Bananas’ ice cream is made with 100% fruit, making it dairy-free, gluten-free, and vegan. This gem sells a pup cup – dog-friendly ice cream topped with treats.

Shake Shack | 111 Washington Street, Hoboken

This eatery doesn’t just offer burgers and fries – it also offers a pooch-ini, which is made with “shakeburger” dog biscuits, peanut butter sauce, and vanilla custard. It also offers a more simple item, the Bag O’Bones, which is a simple bag of about five treats. 

Starbucks | Multiple Locations

The puppuccino can be found on the secret menu. While not listed on the app, most baristas will know what this whipped drink is and happily make one for customers. Starbucks applied for a “puppuccino” trademark in May 2021.
