“It's not the food, it's the place”
Review of Warm Puppy Cafe

Warm Puppy Cafe
Ranked #60 of 567 Restaurants in Santa Rosa
Restaurant details
Reviewed 24 July 2014

The only thing I've eaten here is an over salted kind of stale warm pretzel with a fairly bland iced tea. But I don't care -- I was expecting the usual so-so hockey rink snack. What is great about this place IS the place. You can pull up a chair and sit at your table overlooking the Swiss chalet ice rink and watch the kids learning to skate by pushing chairs around on the ice or hockey players over 40 (some considerably over 40) coming together from all over the world to play in the Snoopy Seniors Tournament. You can take a look at Charles Schulz's "reserved" table with photos and quotes under the glass and think about how he is said to have come here to have breakfast at his rink before going off to draw. Or you can sit by the fire under the Snoopy with his stocking hat on.

I would imagine that if you live nearby and this is your local rink it might feel sort of regular to you. But having been in my fair share of hockey rink snack areas, I can tell you that there is nothing that feels like The Warm Puppy Cafe, stale pretzel notwithstanding.

I can recommend the albacore tuna sandwich. Good taste, reasonable price. I enjoyed the overall atmosphere as well as being able to watch the skaters. It is a nice touch that they preserved Charles Schulz' table.

We had a quick lunch here during our visit to the Home Ice and formal Museum. Standard fare, affordable, served with a smile. No complaints. Of note, the kids loved the bread cut into Snoopy shape. Overlooks the ice rink so you can watch the family skate.

This cafe looks out onto Snoopys Home Ice so you can watch your kids skate and relax. Some good food as well, geared for kids and families.

Great for lunch and be sure to try the snoopy special meal if you are great fans of Peanuts. The cafe had an overview of the ice skating area. Though it may be a bit hard to find seats during weekends as most of the tables were occupied by parents waiting for their kids return from the ice skating.
