Wood-oven pizzas and live music combine to yield one of Jamaica Plain's most congenial locales. – In Short
Located just off the Arborway, a short walk from the Forest Hills T station, the Dogwood Cafe serves as a primary hangout for loads of Jamaica Plain residents. Live music is featured on the weekends, and the earthy-crunchy vibe is evident on the menu, where the specialty pizzas are named after the various trees that are found in the nearby Arnold Arboretum (birch, cypress, dogwood). Comfort fare like burgers and salads also top many tables.
You never kow what to expect – I like the dogwood becasue it is child firendly, except not all people teach thier children how to behave in public. The food is always wishy washy, sometimes its good, and sometimes not. if you find something you like, STICK TO IT, dont try other menu items. Sometimes the pizza is cooked all the way through sometimes not. One time my friend waited a half hour for a clean fork, and had to eat her salad with a knife finally. Sometimes the bartenders are so busy giggling with each other they dont notice you have seated yourself DIRECTLY in front of them for ten minutes! I dont know why we keep going there, convenience maybe? now this is an honest review.
wonderful food and great atmosphere – Dogwood offers jamaica plain a great alternative for fantastic food and beer. As opposed to doyles just down the street, dogwood has really excellent food and a great selection of good beers. Atmosphere is usually good (sometimes a folk singer is booked which can be annoying if seated too close to).
All in all, i would highly recommend folks to try this place out.
