Sydney dog cafes

Sydney dog cafes

At these cafes, your poor, neglected best friend can sip on a lactose-free Pupaccino or perhaps sample the Carpaccio lamb

It makes perfect sense that a dog should be man’s best friend. But what does it take for a dog to be a woman’s best friend?

For starters, a good heart to heart wouldn't go astray. Preferably over coffee.

Or even a nice meal.

If this sounds like your perfect doggy date, at two Sydney dog cafes masters and their humans can enjoy a relaxing setting and lactose-free Pupaccinos.

Café Bones

dog cafes"The rice is a little dry, but, what the hell, always a good move to act grateful."Located inside Hawthorne Canal Reserve, Leichhardt, Café Bones is everything your four-legged friend might desire from a cafe.

In the middle of an off-leash park, it's a convenient meeting place for dog owners that serves trademark Pupaccino drinks for thirsty pooches, as well as a range of dog and human snacks.

It's been a favorite of dog owners for the last decade: a place where they can roll around while their dogs relax and have a drink.

Cafe Bones, Hawthorne Canal Reserve, Leichhardt, tel +61 (0)2 8086 2433, Open 7 Days, 8:30 a.m.-8 p.m.

Chew Chew

dog cafes"The lamb's a little chewy but it's much better than the fish soup."Wollstonecraft’s new place, Chew Chew, brings some north shore style to the Sydney dog cafe scene.

To pamper pooches, Chew Chew specializes in freshly cooked organic pet food in a restaurant setting. It serves three-course meals and takes reservations for canines on a busy schedule.

The changing menu includes sardine burgers, Carpaccio lamb, pasta Bolognese and fish soup. All dishes are served with a side of advice for your dog’s essential dietary needs.

Like Café Bones, Chew Chew has become a dog lovers’ meeting place. Owners can bring in their own food from the human cafe next door and join their pets at a table.

Chew Chew, 3 Railway Parade, Wollstonecraft Station, Wollstonecraft, tel. +61 (0)2 9460 7111
Closed Monday; Tuesday-Wednesday, 8 a.m.-4 p.m.; Thursday, 8 a.m.-6 p.m.; Friday, 8 a.m.-4 p.m.; Saturday, 9 a.m.-2 p.m.; Sunday, by appointment only.
