The best pet-friendly cafés in Singapore

Feel bad about leaving your fur babies at home? Now you don't have to

By Kylie Wong, Huang Junyi and Kristie Teo

Singapore's lagging behind in terms of its friendliness towards pets. It's difficult to bring your fur kids out unless it's to the park or the beach, and in this weather, it might seem more like a chore than a day of fun. Fortunately, there are still some places you can go to catch some respite, have a cup of coffee, enjoy some breakfast – all while hanging out with your best friend.

Ah B Café

Restaurants Cafés Bukit Timah

Known as one of the largest pet-friendly cafés in Singapore, Ah B is able to accommodate furry pals of all shapes and sizes, and is located on-site of Sunny Heights Dog Daycare. Pets are allowed indoors, although there is a minimum spending charge of $18/adult and $10/child. The café menu for your furry friends is designed to promote their health, with a balance of proteins, vegetables and carbohydrates (from $8.80). They can even get dessert – a fruit yoghurt mix ($9.90) with strawberries, bananas, apples and blueberries. The human menu isn't shabby either, with a good spread of western and Japanese-inspired cuisine.  

Sun Ray Café

Restaurants Cafés Serangoon

Sun Ray Café is a coffee roaster, bakery and pet-friendly café all in one. While the menu offers grub for its human guests ranging from fresh bakes like brioche ($0.80) and focaccia ($0.90) to brunch options like the Impossible burger ($16) and beef lasagna ($9), it also makes food in-house for your pets. The fur kids menu includes minced boiled meat (from $3), muffins (from $3) and a whole bento set with rice and vegetables ($10). The café even has leashes, doggie bowls, water and treats for your pets to enjoy.

Café de Nicole's Flower

Restaurants Cafés Bedok

Café de Nicole has many things going for it. Not only is it a floral shop and café, but it's also pet-friendly to boot. Its resident pet is an adorable, docile British shorthair named Laoban ('boss' in Mandarin). The café offers a standard brunch fare, with flowers picked fresh from the florist corner to accompany its gorgeous silverware. Menu items include the picture-perfect rose latte ($7.90), soufflé pancakes (from $15.90) and cheese filling ravioli ($13.90).  There aren't enough pet-friendly cafés in Singapore where you can bring your furry friends indoors, so this makes for a great brunch spot if you're looking to enjoy a day out with your beloved fur baby.

Lola's styles itself as a 'backyard café', and it sets to emulate that homely vibe by encouraging the use of hands to eat instead of the usual fork and spoon.

Restaurants Sentosa

After a day romping around at the beach with your fur pal, the best way to chill is by lazing on a deck chair, Mai Tai in hand. At Coastes, you can do just that. Besides tropical cocktails, the deckside restaurant stocks a formidable array of draft and bottled beers ($13-$19), and the nosh is unfussy yet vibrant enough to live up to the restaurant’s beachy vibe. 


Whisk and Paddle

Restaurants Bistros Punggol

Boasting a large outdoor veranda that looks out at Punggol-Serangoon Reservoir, Whisk and Paddle is a tranquil oasis that's perfect for a leisurely meal. The dog-friendly section outdoors is small, with only certain tables pet owners can dine at with their furry friends. Still, it's a popular choice for families, with a comprehensive menu that includes an all-day breakfast selection, burgers, pastas, and pizzas. The family-friendly space even has a kids' menu and small playground to keep the tykes entertained. 

Wheeler's Yard

Restaurants Fusion Novena

Wheeler's Yard has been an Insta-attraction since it opened its doors. The popular dining spot has an outdoor sitting area for your fur pals, but it gets hot, so time your trips well and make sure your pets stay hydrated. The extensive menu offers a whole range of starters, small plates, mains and desserts, and for those who are kicking back on a weekend night, a selection of tipples and boozy shakes.
