Perth is a city full of dog lovers and coffee addicts, so it’s no wonder that plenty of our fave cafes don’t mind if you bring your four-legged friend along. We’ve found some of our favourite places that will give your pooch some love, throw in a doggy treat and maybe even make them famous on Instagram.
Here are our favourite dog-friendly cafes in Perth.
Slate Cafe might be a little further afield, but with a dog playground for your pooch, an on-site treat truck, a cappuccino for you and a puppuccino for your pet, it's worth the drive. These guys have doggy play dates for particular dog breeds, so keep an eye on their Facebook page and head out for a paw-some day out.
The Little Concept
Serving up healthy dog treats and some amazing food for humans too, The Little Concept welcomes dogs of all shapes and sizes to hang out the front of their alfresco area, and if they're well behaved, they're welcome inside too. This dog-friendly cafe in Fremantle just ticks all the boxes, doesn't it?
Propeller's generously sized outdoor area spills out onto a good patch of grass that's perfect for hanging out with your pooch. They love dogs so much here that they even provide treats to keep them busy while you enjoy your brekky.

While you’re there, it would be rude not to grab one of their delicious daily specials made from fresh, local ingredients—you’ll thank us.
The Orange Box
This kiosk is completely alfresco, and with the beach only 50 meters away, it’s the perfect pit-stop to fuel up after you’ve taken the dog for a walk. There’s plenty of space and seating, from hanging hammocks, beach chairs and an oval right out the front for your pooch to run around on while you sip your morning coffee or freshly squeezed orange juice.
The verandah of Yelo can often be seen covered with locals and their dogs, taking in the view of the ocean and the sea breeze in the afternoon. With plenty of space for your dog to hang out the front, this little cafe is the perfect rest stop for a walk along the coast.

Serving up some of the best breakfast going around from their little shack with views of Trigg Beach, Canteen provides plenty of alfresco dining options that are dog-friendly so that you and your pooch can enjoy brekky together. Just watch out for any sneaky pets ready to steal a bite of your food.
Everyone’s favourite neighbourhood haunt in Cottesloe does healthy takeaway food (think chia pods and lunch boxes) just as well as they do comfort foods like baked bean jaffles, bacon ‘n’ egg muffins and sausage rolls. With a sunny alfresco area and a patch of lawn right next to the tables, bringing your dog with you for breakfast is most certainly encouraged at Daisies.
Furbaby is a one-stop dog pampering spot. Head to this local fave with your doggo and order breakfast or lunch for you both. While you’re there, take advantage of their grooming services and great range of household goods. Don't walk, run your dog to this puppy-topia.

The crew at Rise & Grind will probably be more obsessed with your dog than you are, so take your pooch here when they deserve some extra loving, and you need a good fat feed. The sweet treats here will blow your mind, so just be sure to eat them before your dog can.
The Little Pantry
Nab a table outside, soak up the sunshine and have breakfast with your furry friend at The Little Pantry in Shenton Park. The food here is epic, and the owner will spot your dog and be out for a chat in no time. She might even bring your pup a treat if they’re lucky.
This spacious neighbourhood bakery is a top brunch contender for you and your pooch. With Hyde Park just across the road, you'll want to grab a takeaway coffee and a delicious snack for a puppy play date and picnic with friends.
Been a long week? Take your dog for a stroll to Stomp Coffee in North Perth. This leafy green oasis is all about good coffee and good vibes, making it a great place to relax and lounge around in their courtyard with your pets. The food here is sensational, and you’ll want to wash down their weekly special with a house-roasted coffee.

This cute hole-in-the-wall coffee shop is the newest addition to Stuart Street in Perth and your next stop to explore with your furry friend.

Puppuccino for your pooch! For reals. This dog-friendly cafe in Perth makes their puppuccinos with lactose-free milk, so you don’t have to worry about your little friend getting sick. Boo is the perfect place to stop in once you’ve tired your pup out with a run around the park across the road.
Okay, it's not a cafe per se. But if you’re after something a bit stronger than a cup of coffee, we recommend pulling in for a pint some hot chips at The Camfield. With plenty of space for your doggo to explore without getting into any mischief and dog bowls outside on the terrace, this is the perfect break spot during your walk along the Swan River foreshore.
Now, take your pooch-filled adventure up a notch with a stay at Perth's best pet-friendly accommodation.
