Look At All These Adorable Dogs Chilling At Sqirl
On any given weekend, you'll find a long line snaking around L.A.'s "it" brunch spot, Sqirl. And if you're lucky enough to be able to snag a seat, you might just spot one of the many adorable dogs that hang out by their owners' feet on the restaurant's pooch-friendly patio.
Sqirl owner Jessica Koslow has taken snapshots of said cute dogs and uploaded their photos onto her Instagram page, Dogs of Sqirl, for posterity. In the pictures, the dogs are smiling up at the humans, lazing around on the ground, and one is even taking a long, hard stare at Sqirl's addictive Sorrel Pesto Rice bowl. Warning: scrolling through the feed might just give you cute aggression.
Koslow tells LAist that when she created Sqirl, she wanted to make it a "Cheers of the daytime." One of her restaurant's regulars began bringing in a dog he found wandering around in Silver Lake and fostered it before Koslow decided to take in the dog named Münk as her own.
"At this point, it became clear that, because of the patio, people could and were bringing their dogs," Koslow says. "Dogs of Sqirl is my way of honoring these four-legged creatures, who call Sqirl their watering hole."
