We hate leaving our canine companions at home when we’re on the way out to catch up with friends just because the place we’re going isn’t dog friendly! So we’ve scoped out a few healthy cafes that are dog friendly so your puppy can join you and your friends on your next social outing.
Their bread is baked fresh all day, which is then used to make wholesome sandwiches and the baristas use premium quality coffee and organic milk to produce some of the best coffee in Sydney. If coffee’s not quite your thing, they also have a great range of fresh, organic juices and homemade chai brewed lattes made with real tea leaves and spices. Yum!

Queens Park, NSW
Set in a stylishly converted shed, this is a great spot to stop for a snack or more substantial meal after a walk through the beautiful Queens Park. The menu is designed to incorporate fresh flavours and seasonable produce with a focus on sustainability. Their menu features an array of vegetarian and gluten-free dishes as well as organic juices!
Collingwood Children’s Farm, VIC
Just 4kms from the centre of Melbourne, The Farm Cafe is another dog-friendly cafe that is situated within the Collingwood Children’s Farm. The menu features a number of delicious dishes for breakfast and lunch including their Overnight Muesli with an ingenious mix of soaked amaranth, millet, quinoa, rolled rice and coconut served with vanilla labneh, green apple, and rhubarb. Or cool off after a day of wandering around the farm with an organic orange juice – yum! Your pooch can sit with you at the table and will no-doubt be thankful for a place to rest after roaming around the grounds all day!
Named after the owners’ dog, it’s no surprise that this quaint little cafe just north of Brisbane will cater for you and your pup! Their all-day breakfast menu features such delicious offerings as pumpkin sourdough toast with sliced avocado, feta and mint. Complete with handmade gifts and homemade eats as well as a full water bowl for your dog to rehydrate, it’s the perfect coffee or food stop during or after a walk.
North Adelaide, SA
Boasting fresh, local produce and organic foods to boot, The Store in Melbourne Street, North Adelaide is one of our top picks for doggie dining. Set in a historic building surrounded by widespread off-leash parks, this is a perfect hangout after a run around or workout with your pup!
Tucked away beside Point Walter reserve in Bicton, the Little Stove Cafe is a quirky cafe that will make you and your four-legged friend feel right at home. Defining themselves as “chic meets retro meets hipster with a dash of your Nanna’s lounge room”, they serve fresh local produce and free-range eggs for breakfast. Yum!
