Park Bench Cafe, located in Huntington Beach Central Park, hits all the requisite marks as a dog lover's paradise. The restaurant has been a brunch staple since 1988, but it’s the Park Bench's doggie menu that gets the most attention. Items with adorable names like Bow-Wow-Wow (boneless, skinless chicken) and Rover Easy (scrambled eggs) are featured, as are decadent desserts including Chilly Paws (vanilla ice cream) and Peanut Butter Churro Bites.
