Animals are the greatest gift to humanity, and we refuse to hear otherwise.
While we treat our fur friends with the reverence and respect they deserve, they aren’t oftentimes welcome in spaces outside of the beach or park. Pet-friendly cafes in Singapore are hard to come by, but there is definitely a number around the city that accommodate animals because who’s to say your pup doesn’t deserve to live their best brunch life with avocado toast like you do? (Please don’t take us seriously and stick to feeding them kibbles).
Let us take you through some pet-friendly cafes in Singapore with this guide. You don’t have to be a fur parent to appreciate our cause either, because petting animals over the weekend at a cafe is a sport we strongly advocate.
Sun Ray Cafe is a coffee roastery and bakery all in one, complete with its own label of roasted coffees and teas known as Parchment & Co. Apart from a standard (person-sized) menu, there is a menu for pets and a designated room for your animals to run amok in, with healthy nibbles made with human-grade ingredients to boot, including dessert.
Housed in a colonial bungalow surrounded by lush greenery, Wildseed Cafe is a serene pet-friendly hideaway in Seletar. Stunning decor aside, Wildseed Café also offers brunch, cakes and pastries designed for a midday treat, all made with healthy ingredients.
Treat yourself and your pet at The Garden Slug, where a full-on pet-friendly menu exists. Dog-friendly dishes like steak strips and pupcakes are all made with fresh with wholesome ingredients, and you can also get these pet treats delivered to your home. As your pet roams around the al fresco area, take your time to peruse a menu that spans all-day breakfast to burgers.
Located in Botanic Gardens, Casa Verde is an Italian cafe by day and restaurant by night. Here, it serves local classics like nasi lemak, and hearty Italian dishes such as pizzas. Casa Verde welcomes dogs from all shapes and sizes, and provides water bowls for them, much-needed after a long trek around the gardens.
East-siders, or those visiting the East Coast for a weekend, should bookmark The Coastal Settlement. Not only is it a pet-friendly cafe, but it also is home to vintage knick-knacks that arrest the eyes, given that the space is themed like a museum.
With a storefront designed like a Chinese medicine hall, My Awesome Cafe is unmissable. Though there is plenty of outdoor seating, pets are allowed to come inside when the café isn’t too crowded.
Owned by one of Singapore’s leading florists, Cafe de Nicole is a cafe and floral shop in one. Decked with fresh blooms and a whimsical interior, this place is also perfect for a photoshoot with your pets. Cat lovers, be sure to look under the tables for the resident British Shorthair, Lao Ban.
Dempsey is a hub filled with cafés, but Open Farm Community sets itself apart by offering food with a sustainable focus. Its spacious outdoor terrace has an abundance of space for pets to roam around, as you tuck into healthy bites prepared with locally-sourced ingredients.
Housed in a tiny shophouse in the West Coast neighbourhood, W39 Bistro serves up homely café fare and a spread of cakes. Pets can join you if you’re dining at its outdoor seating area. Come dine on Fridays where customers with pets enjoy 10 percent off the total bill.
Lola Cafe is an open-concept kitchen just a stone’s throw away from Kovan MRT. Classic brunch fare dominates the menu of this café, though it is also beloved for its desserts, especially its array of tarts.
