Doggie dining: the best dog-friendly cafés in Perth
If there’s one thing we do right in Perth, it’s caffeine and cake. As a city of coffee-loving brunch addicts, our humble home isn’t short of excellent cafés and breakfast venues. From coffee in a cone to kid-friendly cafés, Perth’s brunch scene is always keeping up to date with its customers needs and embracing the latest coffee-based trends. This meant it was only a matter of time before our favourite cafés began opening their doors to our favourite breakfast dates: our furry friends, of course! For those of you who enjoy sharing your morning coffee fix with your canine companion, here are Pooky & Boo’s top picks for stylish and dog-friendly cafés in Perth.
Slate Café, Swan Valley
If you’re planning a city escape to Swan Valley with your four-legged friend, this paw-friendly venue is a must on the itinerary. As well as a mouth-watering menu and a gorgeous interior decorated with upcycled furniture, Slate offers an enclosed outdoor area for your fur babies to roam free whilst you tuck into your coffee and cake. For something different to do with your pooch, the café runs breed-specific doggie playdates every Saturday so your pup can enjoy their big day out surrounded by fellow furry friends.
Holly Raye’s, Bassendean
This cute little café located in Bassendean is a welcome addition for style-loving pet owners in Perth. With a modern, industrial-style interior and a cake selection to die for, Holly Raye’s is the perfect place to enjoy a morning treat with your pooch. And we mean this literally - healthy and homemade dog treats are available for your pup at the counter so they can indulge in the fun too. You won’t miss Holly Raye’s from the exterior - just look out for the big, colourful mural of the owner’s dog, Angus!
Burns Beach Café, Iluka
If you’re after some beachside views with your breakfast, Burns Beach Café is a great location to take your pooch for a morning treat followed by a waterfront walk. Located ten minutes out from Joondalup, the café offers a unique menu for both dogs and their human companions. Their Doggy Num Yum’s à la carte menu is sure to be a hit with your pooch, and their alfresco areas will provide your pup with some much-needed shade during Perth’s summer months.
BOO Espresso, Northbridge
You’ve probably heard of a babycino, but what about a puppycino? This small, dog-friendly café in Northbridge (it literally operates from a window) is catering to our furry friends with just that - a milk-based treat for dogs. With a dog-friendly park located directly opposite, you can pick up your coffee just in time for your puppy playdate.
Little Stove, Bicton
For those of you located south of the river, Little Stove in Bicton is the paw-fect place to hang out with your pooch over breakfast or lunch. The café itself is fitted out with quirky, antique-style furniture, and there’s plenty of outdoor seating for you and your furry friend. With water bowls at the ready and tasty treats for your pup at the counter, this is a great place to spoil your beloved canine companion.
