Friends and Family Owned Since 1985
Lost Dog Café began in a tiny storefront space in Arlington’s Westover neighborhood in 1985 as a small unassuming wine, beer, and cheese shop. Owners Ross Underwood and Pam McAlwee started small, dreamed big and worked countless long hours until things slowly fell into place as the Lost Dog Café, a Northern Virginia destination well known for its great food and extensive beer selection.
We proudly support the Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation
Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation was founded in 2001 to help continue and expand the rescue efforts of the original Lost Dog Café. The Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation (LDCRF), a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation devoted to helping homeless dogs and cats find forever homes. Today, LDCRF finds homes for 2,000+ animals per year and estimates more than 30,000 lives have been saved since its inception. The foundation’s success is due in no small part to the continued support of the Lost Dog Café restaurants, its loyal customers, and the 100’s of LDCRF Volunteers.
