8 places you can go to have a cuppa with your pupper

Yep, you read that right.

Brisbane is home to an insanely good café culture, complete with excellent food and drink. The best part, though, is that many cafés in Brisbane are dog friendly. With such a huge list to choose from, it can be hard to choose. So here’s a list of some of the best Brisbane has to offer in dog friendly cafés:

Little Loco – New Farm

One of Brisbane’s best cafes already, New Farm’s Little Loco is also dog friendly. Highlights from the menu include their huevos rancheros and pavlova waffles. For your furry friend, you can get a free puppacchino with any meal purchase. On top of that, it’s the perfect location for a walk by the river afterwards.

Open Monday-Friday 6am-2pm, Saturday & Sunday 6.30am-2pm.

Mary Mae’s – New Farm

Located next to the Powerhouse, and conveniently close to the dog park, is Mary Mae’s Bar & Kitchen. Soak in an amazing view while sharing a meal with your pup, and maybe even indulge yourself in a sneaky beverage too. They may not do puppacchino’s, but your pooch will still be spoilt for choice with freshly made dog treats and can even go for a swim in the doggie paddle pool.

Open Monday & Tuesday 8.30am-6pm, Wednesday & Thursday 8.30am-9.30pm, Friday 8.30am-late, Saturday 8am-late, Sunday 8am-8pm.

Sassafras Canteen – Paddington

It’s a struggle to decide what to get at Sassafras, because everything on the menu looks so good. They have options for everyone, including man’s best friend! They even have a special section of the menu dedicated to dogs, because who doesn’t think their dog deserves their own biscuit?

Open Monday-Friday 6.30am-2pm, Saturday & Sunday 7am-2pm

Collies & Co – Samford

If you want to feel close to nature, this café’s your pick. Located out from the busy Brisbane city, this café even has a puppy pen for your best mate to play in. And if you don’t have your own dog, don’t worry, because they supply those too. Just to top it off, at 7am, 10am and 1pm every day you can attend a Puppy Cuddle Session… score! This café also has some seriously good options for those with a sweet tooth, including the staples of pancakes and waffles, but also has great options for those looking for a more savoury start to their day. Even though it’s located out of the city, it’s still sure to be busy on the weekends so it’s recommended that you book a table.

Open from 7am-3pm every day.
