If you’re someone who’s overly attached to your pet (let’s face it, we all are), then you’ll understand the eternal struggle over the weekend where you have to decide whether to spend your rest day out and about or at home accompanying your love-deprived fur pal.
With the increase in pet-friendly cafes though, you can now get the best of both worlds by taking your pet out with you as you head for that well-deserved weekend brunch. Here’s a list of dog-friendly cafes perfect if you’re a clingy owner.
1. Canopy Garden Dining & Bar

Located in the heart of Bishan Park, Canopy Garden Dining & Bar is one of the more well-known animal cafes in Singapore, largely due to its close proximity to the popular dog run nearby.
With a varied brunch menu, you can enjoy a hearty meal here to refuel after a morning runabout with your dog. The Ragu Alla Bolognese is very much recommended.

All the way over at Sentosa is Coastes, a rustic and casual beach eatery littered with sunbeds and deck chairs right up to the water’s edge.
Coastes has something for everyone because aside from being pet-friendly, it’s nearby several kid-friendly amenities while nightfall also brings with it a romantic ambiance perfect for couples.

Tucked away in a quiet cosy corner of Dempsey is The Green Door, whom describe themselves as a ‘garden bar perfect at which to meet before and after dinner’.
Despite priding themselves on their cocktails and drinks menu, their food offerings are not to be written off, with their Signature BBQ Pork Ribs being a firm fan favourite.
Water bowls for pets are provided as well, so you can toast your fur pal while sipping on that mojito.

4. Ah B Cafe
Known by regulars as ‘ABC’, Ah B Cafe is part of Sunny Heights, a full-fledged doggie daycare with a cafe boasting a solid food menu and chill ambiance to boot.
While their Teriyaki Chicken is pretty decent, many actually come here for the range of cakes on their pet menu.

Now if you’re someone who doesn’t have your own pet to bring around for brunch, fret not because We Are The Furballs is a dog cafe in Bugis with resident dogs. Treats can be purchased over the counter, which will immediately transform you into a dog magnet.
After you’re done cuddling up to the pups (if you’re ever done, that is), you can head over to the cafe section for a drink and a round of board games with friends.

Apart from dishing out human and pet friendly meals, Ulu Ulu Pet Cafe also provides pet playgrounds, pools and training workshops for your furkids. To ensure safety of all pets, owners are required to produce the vaccination card before entering the pool.
