Dog-focused Businesses 🐾

 Château Le Woof – Astoria

Natassa Contini came up with the idea for Chateau Le Woof when she was out for a morning walk with her dog looking for a cup of coffee. She imagined how perfect it would be if there was a coffee shop for dogs too! Thus Chateau le Woof was born: a dog café and pet market with an off-leash play area, delicious food and great coffee.
