Get your pup’s tail wagging with a brunch date at one of the best dog-friendly cafes in Brisbane!

Little Black Pug

Part of being a dog parent is the desire to give them the best life possible, whilst spending every spare minute you can with them! One of the easiest ways to incorporate more quality time with your dog into your busy routine is to include them on your breakfast, lunch and brunch dates throughout the week.

Brisbane is a very pet friendly city, so there’s no shortage of dog-friendly cafes. We’ve listed a few of our favourites for you below, so scroll through and discover which one will become your new local.

Snag & Brown

Snag & Brown

Not only does Snag & Brown serve up some seriously tasty brunch dishes and perfectly roasted Bear Bones coffee, but they’re also one of the best dog-friendly cafes in Brisbane. What sets this cafe apart is its off-leash dog park, which provides the perfect opportunity for your furbaby to blow off some steam while making some new friends. 

On the menu you’ll find brekkie classics like eggs benedict and avocado bruschetta, but also some pet-friendly puppicinos, too.

From the fiery ruins of the Taj Mahal restaurant on Brunswick Street emerges Kevin, a fresh new face on the Brisbane cafe scene.

Inside, you’ll find leafy green decor and warm natural hues.

Kevin’s food is as fresh as its facelift, with a garden-to-plate philosophy that sees vibrant produce and tasteful touches to each dish. Not only is Kevin a tasty new brekkie haunt, but it’s also one of Brisbane’s best dog-friendly cafes to get your weekend walkies off on the right foot.
