Well, what if I told you that Singapore has a multitude of cafes with delicious offerings that also welcome furry patrons?

1. Bee’s Knees

Named after the expression which refers to something outstanding, Bee’s Knees definitely lives up to their name. Located in the Singapore Botanic Gardens, the cafe is perfect for brunch after you’ve taken a morning walk in the scenic gardens with your dog. 

Bee’s Knees has both an air-conditioned indoor area, as well as an outdoor alfresco area where your dog is welcome to dine with you. Their breakfast selection features both savoury and sweet options, no matter what you’re craving for that morning! Personally, I’d recommend the Bee’s Knees Big Breakfast (S$27). While the dish is priced on the higher side, it is definitely a bang for your buck due to the large portions that can be shared between two people. For those with a sweet-tooth, the Acai Fruit Bowl (S$11) will definitely satisfy your cravings. It’s also a great choice for those looking for a nutritious breakfast. 

While your dogs do not have a menu to choose from (sadly), fresh water for your dog is provided upon request.

Address: 50 Cluny Park Rd, Level 1 Singapore Botanic Gardens, Singapore 257488

2. Casa Verde

Casa Verde is also situated in the Botanic Gardens, impossible to miss as you enter the gardens through the Nassim Gate. Brought to you by the famed Les Amis Group, the cafe offers both Western as well as local delights. Avo-lovers can enjoy their Avocado on Toast (S$18) while those who favour a Singaporean breakfast can opt for their Mee Siam (S$12) or Nasi Lemak (S$15)

While they have air-conditioned indoor seating, dogs are only allowed at their outdoor tables. Water for the pooches is available, with water bowls provided by the side of the cafe. Do be prepared to queue before entering on weekends – the cafe is definitely a crowd favourite!

Address: 1 Cluny Rd, Singapore Botanic Gardens, Singapore 259569

3. FlagWhite

For those who enjoy assembling your own breakfast plate, FlagWhite is the place for you. Nestled in a cosy nook along Jalan Jurong Kechil, the cafe might be hard to find for first-timers who are unfamiliar with the Bukit Timah area. Don’t be fooled by the cafe’s unassuming exterior – they have a lot to offer. Most patrons will opt for the Flag Your Brunch option, which allows you to customise your breakfast platter by choosing your eggs, your “flaggers” (sides), as well as your bread of choice. 

The cafe also offers a variety of bakes from the famous Keong Saik Bakery, where the selection varies according to the day. For the coffee-lovers, you’ll get the option to pick out which beans you’d prefer for your morning coffee. 

For the dogs, a bowl of iced water is served upon seating. My dog particularly enjoyed picking out the ice cubes and crunching on them! I also loved that it was served to us immediately without requesting for it. FlagWhite definitely makes the list for the top dog-friendly cafes in Singapore.

Address: 106 Jln Jurong Kechil, Singapore 598604

4. Baker & Cook

With multiple locations islandwide, Baker & Cook is a must-visit for all regardless of whether you live in the East or West of Singapore. They are known for their assortment of fresh bakes and pastries so get ready to be wowed by the selection on display at each of their outlets. 

I love their Deluxe Granola (S$15) which is served with a yogurt and fruit compote. The crunchiness of the granola along with the tantalising taste of the compote makes for a great start to the day. For a savoury option, try out their delicious Scrambled Eggs (S$14). The dish comes with a few slices of their toasted German Volkorn bread that you can also purchase by loaf at the counter. 

I recommend visiting their newest outlet at Dempsey due to its family-friendly design. The spacious outdoor area is great for dogs, especially the grassy section which provides a cooling surface for your dog to lay on. They also have a charming wooden playground for the children to play at while the adults enjoy their meal. There’s no better place for some family bonding over brunch!

Address: 30C Loewen Road Singapore 248839 

5. Caffe Cichetti

Be prepared to be transported to the Amalfi Coast with Caffe Cicheti’s coastal Italian concept. Caffe Cichetti is located at the dog-friendly South Beach Avenue Shopping Mall. While not all the restaurants in the mall are open to our furry friends, Caffe Cicheti allows dogs at their outdoor tables. Tip: Book a table in advance and make sure to state you’re bringing along a dog so that you don’t end up being seated at a high bar table.

To truly immerse yourself in the Italian vibes, have a taste of their Mushroom and Ricotta Bruschetta (S$24). Unless you’re not a fan of mushrooms, each bite is a guaranteed flavourful experience. You can also go all out and indulge in their Steak and Egg (S$38), which features a 180g cubed steak. If this doesn’t provide you with the ultimate Italian brunch experience, I don’t know what will. 

Address: 26 Beach Rd, #B1-21, Singapore 189768

6. Sarnies

If you’ve never been to Sarnies, you’ll probably be able to find it by spotting their large crowds from a distance. An Aussie-style cafe that is known for their authentic Australian fare, they also pride themselves on their coffee made from quality beans. Customers can customise their breakfast through the Pimp Your Breakfast option. Choose from favourites including Two Eggs (S$4), Sauteed Spinach (S$3), and Chorizo (S$6). Considering that Sarnies is Aussie slang for sandwiches, you have to try a sandwich from Sarnies when you’re there. Their Bacon & Egg Sarnie ($9.50) is Australian grub in a meal. 

After your meal, take a walk with your pooch along Telok Ayer, a place oozing with culture. The cafe’s key location makes it one of the best dog-friendly cafes in Singapore to visit. Make sure to take some Instagram-worthy spots in front of the historical buildings in the vicinity!

Address: Telok Ayer St, 136, Singapore 068601

7. Hub & Spoke

Hub & Spoke is a picturesque glasshouse-themed cafe located in Changi Airport near Terminal 2. It is situated along the East Coast Park connector, making it a popular pit stop for bikers, runners and the like. 

The cafe offers a large variety of affordable local fare, from Kaya Butter Toast Set (S$4.20) to Steamed Yam Bread Set (S$4.50). Each set comes with the classic Soft Boiled Eggs as well as a choice of Kopi or Tea – the perfect traditional Singaporean breakfast. The cafe also has options for those looking for a Western-style breakfast. Check out their Salmon Benedict (S$11.90) that is definitely much more wallet-friendly as compared to other places!

While dogs are only allowed outdoors, there is a small field right outside the cafe that dog owners often bring their dogs to. This dog-friendly cafe is perfect for dog owners because of its link to the East Coast Park connector, which also leads to the Jurassic Mile attraction. Bring your furry friend to the dinosaur display (yes, it’s dog-friendly!) and snap some photos of them with the towering creatures!

Address: 60 Airport Boulevard #01-T2S-02, Singapore Changi Airport, 819643

8. The Dempsey Project

The Dempsey Project is a gourmet brunch spot located in one of the many barracks on Dempsey Hill. Fun fact: Dempsey Hill is home to a number of dog-friendly cafes in Singapore!

For the health-conscious, they have a wide range of cold-pressed juices or smoothies, including the Lemon Ginger Zinger (S$11) and the Avocado Matcha (S$11). Experience a taste of Mexico by trying their Huevos Rancheros (S$25), a spicy concoction of cheesy baked eggs certain to take your tastebuds on a journey.

Apart from their delicious menu items, the main attraction of the restaurant is its mini marketplace. Browse through the specially-curated fresh produce sourced from countries worldwide, including condiments, quality grains and more. Unfortunately, your dog will have to wait outside as dogs are only allowed on the restaurant’s outdoor premises.

Address: Block 9 Dempsey Rd, #01-12, Singapore 247697
