What Are Dog-Friendly Cafes?
A dog-friendly cafe is a type of animal cafe, also formerly known as a pet cafe–a place where people can hang out, play and interact with various animals such as cats, dogs, rabbits, birds, or llama while they enjoy the cafe’s food and drinks. A dog-friendly cafe is designed to allow customers to bring their dogs (or play with resident dogs in the cafe) and dine in at the same time. Despite dog-friendly cafes allowing patrons to bring their dogs along, they may or may not have menu items for dogs (it is not allowed to feed them human food). There are a surprisingly large number of dog-friendly cafes nestled in a small city like Singapore. These cafes offer a wide variety of cuisines and services. We have prepared a comprehensive list for you to check out. Some of these cafes might be located on the further side of our sunny island, but that’s where a car comes in handy! At ETHOZ, we provide cheap car rental packages so you can visit these cafes and have a pleasant dining date with a canine companion.
1. Sun Ray Cafe
The Sun Ray cafe is a cosy pet-friendly cafe providing scrumptious restaurant style food and specialty coffee roasted in-house by professional certified baristas. One of the cafe’s biggest attractions is that it is an NEA-licensed pet-friendly cafe. The cafe is divided into two main rooms – one for pets with their owners, and the other for the humans. So if you happen to be allergic to say animal fur, for example, you can keep a safe distance away while still enjoying the presence of pets. It’s a popular spot for both families with children, and people who want to do work in a comfortable, dog-friendly setting.
