Hong Kong still has a long way to go to become a dog-friendly city, but there are still a lot of spaces and pooch-friendly establishments that welcome our beloved pets. In addition to this, you can also bring along your pup to dog-friendly restaurants or cafes for some quality time and some eats. To break it down for you, we’ve whipped up a list of the best dog-friendly eateries in the city where you can bring your pooch and dine peacefully.

Moontone is a cafe created by the same team behind popular yoghurt drink shop Cheung Chau Corner which, much like its sister shop, is a cafe your Instagram feed will love. The cafe is themed around the Pantone colours, particularly leaning towards pastel tones, and offers a bright and airy space with casual cushioned floor seating, wooden tables, blue Pantone wall, and even a faux tree in the middle of the cafe. Moontone is also pet-friendly, so you can bring your cats, dogs and pets with you inside on Mondays (except public holidays).

  • Tung Chung

The all-day dining restaurant is located in Tung Chung T Bay's waterfront retail space (which is right by the Sheraton Hong Kong Tung Chung hotel) and features indoor and outdoor seating, making it an ideal venue for casual get-togethers with friends and family, and it’s super pet-friendly too! Humans can enjoy alfresco moments with their pets while dining on fresh and grilled seafood items on the menu, along with comforting pasta and pizza dishes, all with a touch of Mediterranean coastal flavour.

Located in West Kowloon Cultural District, Hooman By The Sea is a  pet-friendly cafe offering both indoor and outdoor seating for you and your pooch.
