Don’t dine alone! Take your furry friend to one of Sydney’s dog-friendly cafes

If you thought eating out in Sydney meant leaving your dog behind, think again. More and more cafes are allowing diners to feast with Fido by their side. We’ve picked out our favourite local haunts in Sydney, plus some great recommendations for you to visit with your four-legged friend.

Café Bones,
Hawthorne Canal Reserve, Leichhardt – www.cafebones.com.au

An institution among city canines, Café Bones is the ultimate destination for your furry friend. Located next to the off-leash Hawthorne Canal Reserve, it’s outdoor seating only but definitely worth a visit so you can treat your pooch to a Pupaccino and maybe some of Cafe Bones’ own dog biscuits. It’s the place to socialise with other dogs and their owners.

Centennial Park Dining Kiosk
1 Grand Drive, Centennial Parklands- www.cpdining.com.au

After your Sunday morning walk around Centennial Park, you know you’ve earned your breakfast! Recently refurbished, the Centennial Park Dining Kiosk has your needs covered. It’s one of the best go-to playgrounds for your pup. Grab a coffee, and a bite to eat and sit amongst the rolling fields to recharge after play time.

Sydney Park Kiosk
Sydney Park Rd, St Peterswww.sydneyparkkiosk.com.au

You’re not short of finding a doggie friend at Sydney Park and the kiosk is no different. A firm favourite with locals, it’s located on the fringe of Sydney’s South in St Peters, the Sydney Park Kiosk offers a casual alfresco cafe environment ideal for the whole family. In fact, the park is so dog-friendly that the local council runs dog training classes every day on Saturday at 10am.

Queens Park Shed
Darley Road, Queens Park – www.queensparkshed.com.au

Adjacent to the children’s playground, the old pavilion building has been transformed into a shabby chic new eatery, a perfect place to crash out in after some off-leash action in Queens Park. With a relaxed atmosphere, there are plenty of outdoor seats for you and your dog to share a bite.

Chew Chew Pet Restaurant
Shop 3, Railway Walk, Wollstonecraft Station, Wollstonecraft – www.chewchew.com.au

Chew Chew Pet Restaurant don’t give a woof about your needs – it’s a café where your dog well and truly comes first! You can indulge your fur baby with a 3-course organic gourmet meal with items such as Chicken Risotto or Lamb Omelette, and they can wash it all down with a doggy cappuccino at the end. We know, it sounds good enough for us humans! Don’t worry, the humans can bring in a coffee or something to eat from the café next door and join their pet at the table. Without a doubt, Chew Chew is the ultimate place to pamper your pooch.

Not quite Sydney, but if you feel like mixing it up a bit and getting out of the city – why not take a short road trip to Kurrajong Bark Park?

The quirky outdoor space features a large, fully-fenced play area for dogs (complete with an obstacle course!) and a special off-leash area for small dogs only.
