Dog Cafes in Sydney
1. Naked Brew
The doggie menu at Naked Brew offers doggie doughnuts for pooches in need of a treat, alongside doggie chinos served with frothy goat's milk, liver sprinkles and carob dusting.
A doggie smoothie is perfect for the health-conscious pups out there, which is goat's milk blended with blueberries, unsalted and unsugared peanut butter, liver sprinkles and carob dusting. What more could a true pooch of the inner-west ask for?!
And for everyone else, Naked Brew offers an all-day menu of dreams serving hamburgers, sandwiches, breakfast, and brunch. Tuck in peeps!
Location: 110 Swanson St, Erskineville
2. Honkas Bar + Eats
An Asian street food hotspot in the backstreets of trendy Potts Point, Honkas Bar + Eats has a mouth-watering menu of Korean, Japanese and Vietnam cuisine.
They also have a spacious, central courtyard where furry friends are not just welcome, they are offered free dog meals when their owners dine in! The healthy, gluten-free canine treats include a sweet potato tart with peanut butter. Bone Appetit!
Location: 11 Roslyn St, Potts Point
3. Cafe Bones
Did you know that Sydney is home to the world's first dog cafe? Well, that's what the team at Cafe Bones are claiming and hey, who are we to argue!
The coffee at Cafe Bones is organic and fair-trade, the menu is stocked with sandwiches, heaps of sweet treats, and even a dog menu to indulge your four-legged pal with a bone-shaped cookie or Pupaccino™.
Cafe Bones is the number one meeting spot for locals who don't want to leave their pooches at home - even Dog Whisperer Cesar Milan stopped by during a trip to Oz!
Location: Hawthorne Canal Reserve, Leichhardt
4. Puppadeli Pet Cafe
At Puppadeli Pet Cafe in Lane Cove, pet nutrition comes first!
Pet nutritionist and pet care adviser Naoko Okamoto has designed a Japanese-style dog menu with a focus on nutritional content and taste. Organic meat and fish straight from the Sydney Fish Markets are served up to your pal. Some serious thought is put into every dish, which is always 50 per cent meat, 25 per cent grain and 25 per cent vegies.
You can order three-course meals for your dog, including an entree of soup, a lamb omelette, and a cupcake and doggie cappuccino to top it off. In case this dog cafe couldn't get any more loveable, you can host your pooches birthday party here too!
Location: 1/22 Rosenthal Ave, Lane Cove
This all-day Italian restaurant in Surry Hills is also all-day dog-friendly!
Your doggies get primo outdoor seating and free organic treats (and free cuddles by passers-by no doubt). Bartolo is owned by Jared Merlino, the man behind Big Poppas, Kittyhawk and Lobo Plantation, so expect good food and cocktails too.
Location: 359 Crown St, Surry Hills
6. Queen's Park Kitchen
Sydney's biggest backyard is home to one of the best dog cafes in Sydney.
Queens Park Kitchen overlooks the picturesque Queens Park in Randwick, and the team love nothing more than when their favourite customers pop in with their four-legged friends in tow.
While the Queens Park Kitchen menu doesn't specifically cater to your doggies, the whole family is welcome to enjoy their all-day offerings from their comfortable outdoor deck. Their all-day menu boasts yummy hot and cold meals, plus snacks, drinks, and kids' meals.
Location: Darley Rd, Queens Park
7. Puppy Tail Cafe
Another dog cafe in Sydney welcoming furry friends in all shapes and sizes, Puppy Tail Cafe is located right next to the off-leash dog area in Blackman Park - you can't get more dog-friendly than this!
Puppy Tail Cafe is quite small, so it's geared more towards takeaway than dining, but it's the perfect spot to grab a coffee and a treat while your dogs enjoy the fresh air of the park.
Location: Lloyd Rees Dr, Lane Cove West
