So, you're location hunting for a coffee date. The trouble is, you're date can be a little difficult to accommodate. For some reason, unbeknown to you, people generally don't like having him or her around food. They say it's something to do with germs and workplace health and safety? That, and they're prone to stealing food of others plates. 

You can either a) find a new date or b) read on, because we're bringing top-notch cafes where you can sit over coffee with your four-legged friend. Don't worry, it's not weird to want to take your dog on a date (or wheel your them around in a pram for that matter). It's totally normal. Right, Claire

Saabi on Manson

Named after their beloved dog, Saabi, this Hendra hotspot is doggy heaven. At any time of day there will be a pack of furry friends happily panting under the leafy canopy. Shade and water bowls supplied.  

Bean On Dean 

Yep, the crew at Bean on Dean love your dog, too. They're all too happy to make you and your best friend feel right at home. Order the avo on toast—it's great. 

In A Pickle

This quirky Camp Hill café has your puppy covered. And, with delicious homemade food that won't break the bank, you'll be happy, too. 

Grub St

This north-side eatery takes breakfast very seriously.  Serving up Swiss mushroom duxelle with truffled scrambies, pulled pork quesadillas, and much more, you'll both be salivating.

Double Shot Espresso

With a wide frontage on a quiet suburban street, Double Shot is the perfect possie. Park your pooch on the grassy knoll and dig into their ripper brekky menu. 


We love Bunker and your canine will too. Warming up a damn fine brew from Monday through to Friday, you're caffeine needs are more than covered—and we recommend the hot chocolate, too. It's a real winner. 

Jamie's Espresso Bar

You'll find every man and his dog at this laid-back James Street go-to. Brewing a seriously good espresso, share a slice or two of Turkish toast with your pooch and you'll both be grinning.
