The White Dog Cafe University City will celebrate 4 decades in business next year and was among the first Philadelphia restaurants to employ farm-to-table as well as environmental sustainability and community engagement.

Fearless Restaurants owner Marty Grims took over the White Dog Cafe in 2009 from social activist and original founder Judy Wicks who had launched it in 1983 as a small take-out shop selling muffins and coffee before involving into a full-service restaurant. Grims expanded the White Dog Cafe brand opening White Dog Cafe Wayne in 2010 and White Dog Cafe Haverford in 2015.
