Puppy Chow

America's first dog café will open in L.A. on April 7

For all you pooch lovers who were bummed when cat cafés became a certified thing, your time has come. The country's first dog café is opening April 7 in Los Angeles. Visitors will be able to grab a cup of Grounds & Hounds Coffee (get it?) from one area and head to another to hang out with some adorable pups.

The dogs, like brother-sister pair Bart and Lisa, are all up for adoption and are profiled on the café's website. The goal, according to owner Sarah Wolfgang, is to find them all "forever" homes. Wolfgang is partnering with the South L.A. Animal Shelter and other local animal organizations to help with the project.

The Dog Cafe, as it's been dubbed, officially opens on April 7, but is already soft-open. Those wanting to go should make a reservation before heading over, as the 55-minute sessions are likely to fill up fast. Keep in mind there's a $10 entrance fee, which includes a beverage and helps keep the place running.
