Dogs are the best. We want to bring our fur babies with us everywhere; that includes when we pop out for a meal. But, sometimes your café of choice isn’t as dog-lovin’ as you.  To ensure you and your pooch have a ball sampling Brisbane’s finest fare, we’ve put together a list of the best Brisbane cafes to bring your dog to.

Atticus Finch


The team at Atticus Finch, much like their fictional namesake, are like, really good guys. They’ll hook your pooch up with a treat, a big bowl of water and a cute hook to keep that pesky lead on. Not to mention their menu for humans is pretty good too…

Goodness Gracious


Goodness Gracious, in Graceville, have their very own pooch parking area, complete with water a plenty and hooks for leads. Let your pooch chill with their four legged friends while you chow down on their TDF breakfast menu inside.

Carte Blanche Espresso

Camp Hill

Hidden on the back streets of Camp Hill, Carte Blanche is the perfect mid dog walk stop off spot for literally every man (and woman!) and his dog. The menu items here will even give your furry friend a run for money in the cuteness stakes… ‘walking on sunshine’ is their muesli offering.

Tall Short


We all know Tall Short in Paddington love cute things: we’ve all seen the gingerbread men they give out with their brew so, it’s really no surprise that dogs are very welcome here. Bring your pup along and they’ll get their own water bowl and patch of Astroturf.



Quite literally a hole in the wall, these guys have exclusively out door seating. In dog owner lingo that means Bunker is perfect for pups.

Saabi on Manson


Saabi on Manson is named after a very special pooch, so from the get go you know these guys are dog lovers. Your pooch’s comfort is their priority so head on over for shade, water and plenty of doggy friends.

Brown Dog Cafe


Located in the antique precint of Woolloongabba this corner store spot gets super busy, so head in early to secure a spot for you and your dog. Plus, they’re named after a Brown Dog, so it’s kinda obvious.

Bean On Dean


The crew at Bean on Dean love dogs. Your pooch will be stealing all the attention and getting bulk pats at this spot. Their coffee and menu are also on point. Plus, they sell the much loved Nodo doughnuts.

Alcove Café and Deli


There’s plenty of out door seating for four legged friends at Alcove. Breakfast is all day here, the food is predominantly locally sourced and they serve a killer coffee – what’s not to love? Ps – for South side diners try Esher St Deli, owned by the same peeps, dogs are equally welcome here.



Dogs dine supreme at Sassafras in Paddington. The pioneers of all day breakfast in Brisbane, Sassafras understand not only a good poached egg, but the importance of bringing your pup along to breakfast and thusly opened up their leafy court yard to four legged diners.

Nana and Da’s


Housed in an old bake house, Nana and Da’s, in Kedron, serves up all day breakfast and other delicious treats. Plus, your fluffy friend is more than welcome here with water served upon arrival. 

Todd & Pup


Hidden in the leafy streets of Moorooka, you’d be forgiven for not knowing Todd & Pup existed. With a spacious deck outside for pups and humans alike, this place is constantly buzzing with wagging tales and bowls of water being filled.

Our Haus Cafe


Our Haus Cafe go all out when it comes to pup-spitality. This is your go-to for pupachinos and meat deliciousness for your furry friend. Their human food menu is also pretty special too.

Love dogs? You’d better be following these pups on Insta then!
