Nothing beats both you and your Floofy friend enjoying what the outdoors has to offer, and an afternoon walk at Albert Park or Silvan Reservoir Park seems to be the epitome of it. Still, you can’t shake off the feeling that your pets deserve to experience so much more!
And we feel you!
That’s why we’ve listed down five top dog-friendly restaurants in Melbourne where you can both enjoy the food, the place, and each other’s company, just like a date!
From breakfast to late-night escapades, we’ve got it all covered.
Dr Morse Bar & Eatery
Located at 274 Johnston Street, Abbotsford, beside Victoria Park Station. This place is the place to be after a long and tiring day at work, or if you want some fun and relaxation on the weekend. Dogs are welcome here anytime, so you can bring your four-legged friend without worrying about any restrictions! Let your furry friend party with other pooches, and hoomans, while you enjoy the cool breeze and a cold beer in hand.
Enjoy the bohemian and arts culture of Brunswick and dine in with your pooch at the Little Hop, located at 277 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy. This place offers hearty food not only for humans but for dogs, as well! Now, you can truly enjoy a meal together – no more puppy eyes and no more saying no – eat your tacos at peace while your pooch gobbles down a doggie taco by your side.
This dog-friendly brewery located at 86 Parsons Street, Kensington is popularly known for its colorful murals and awesome drinks. Dogs are allowed inside the tap room where there are few water bowls available for them. Although they don’t serve any dishes, they encourage and let people bring their own food, so make sure to bring some for your furry friends, too!
The Old Garage
Treat your dog with a puppuccino at the Old Garage, located at 2A Glen Iris Road, Camberwell. This cozy restaurant serves breakfast and lunch for everyone! There are lots of vegan options, as well as kids-approved dishes, and of course, a dog-friendly menu. They also host regular fundraises supporting local animal shelters.
The Great Northern
A laid-back pub located at 644 Rathdowne Street, Carlton, where you can drink and enjoy the company of your dog and any dog friends they make! The Great Northern not only allows pets, but they also strongly encourage pet owners to bring their floofy friends so expect to see a lot of fur, snout, and fluffiness everywhere you look in their beer garden. They also have a resident dog who can often be found with the kids or under the tables (probably looking for food).
With most pet owners in Melbourne spending the majority of their time working, a few hours outside, just enjoying the moment is truly gratifying and a great bonding experience for the human and their beloved pet.
That’s why, as a pet owner, it’s also great to know that while you go about doing what you have to do, there are trustworthy pet sitters and dog walkers you can expect to really take care of your pet and shower them with love in your place.
Floofers offer a range of pet care services including dog walking, pet sitting, house sitting and drop in house visits, enabling pet owners to find suitable pet sitting services for their needs.
Because our Floofy friends deserve nothing less but the best pet care.
