Top spots for you and your pooch!

Best Dog Friendly Cafes

Although dogs have always been man’s best friend, in recent years the top spot has come under some serious competition from our newest pal, coffee. But why choose between our two great loves? There are some wonderful local Brissy haunts that will always welcome your favourite canine companion with open arms, not to mention a water bowl and a nice patch of outdoor shade.

Bring them along to one of these fabulous doggy-friendly establishments!
