Best Spots to Take Pooch
Tuesday, 8 May 2012
For the most part, there are lots of cafes and restaurants that let you bring your dog, provided you sit outside. But not every café gives our favourite furry friends the VIP treatment. Here are four spots we’re really loving:
Solely dedicated to dogs, K9 Kulture is a godsend for busy working owners. They provide a doggie daycare service and have outfitted their premises with two swimming pools for the dogs! They also have a K9 Kafé that has great food for both two-legged or four-legged company. We recommend heading down and letting pooch go for a swim in their salt-chlorinated water, then picking up some good chow a la Saturday at the Country Club.

Canopy Garden Dining
Green space? Check. Good food? Check. Dog culture? Double check. If you haven’t already visited The Canopy (which looks as lush as it sounds) for your Sunday soiree, it’s time to make a trip out there. While the café is a pet-friendly café which welcomes pets, it does not have a pet menu… but they’re more than happy to give you a bowl of fresh water for pooch.

Urban Pooch might just be the most popular canine café in town. With menus for both owners and pets, the café is a regular hotspot for doggie “barkday” parties and meetups. They also offer dog grooming services, spa treatments, and daycare or overnight services. We definitely recommend the German Shepherd’s Pie for the furkids – they gobble it down.

Colbar is a lazy café in the heart of the artsy Wessex Estate. It’s not officially declared a pet-friendly café, though the grassy lawns and happy pooches might convince you otherwise. While the food for us humans isn’t fodder to fawn over, this secluded location makes kicking back with a beer on a Sunday even sweeter. Plus – pooches don’t have to be leashed here.
