For our fellow dog walkers out there, we understand the sheer delight you feel when you find a gorgeous cafe which lets you enjoy a mug of tea and some cake with your pup at your feet. Finding such pleasure can be rare and for all those dog friendly cafe owners out there we are very thankful. So we rounded up a few of our faves for you and your pup to try out.
Copper Pot, Ambleside
First on our list is the Copper Pot in Ambleside, a gorgeous little gem in the Lake District. Offering fresh coffee, cake and a fantastic breakfast and lunch menu to help you refuel after a walk around the Lakes.
Morelli’s Gelato, Broadstairs
The Morelli family first started selling ice cream in 1907, after they came over to Scotland from Southern Italy. Over the years the business grew from strength to strength and the family opened their Broadstairs cafe in 1932. The Kent based cafe has become a destination spot for gelato in the UK, with it’s 1950s interior parlour style and iconic flying canopy in a picturesque setting on the seafront of Viking Bay. Not only is the cafe dog friendly, but they have also created their very own dog friendly gelato!
Boston Tea Party, Worcester
The Boston Tea Party cafe in Worcester is set in a gorgeous Georgian townhouse right in the middle of Worcester. Close to the Riverside Canal, a favourite walking spot with the locals, the cafe has plenty of dog bowls of water to go round and treats for your pup after a Sunday stroll.
Beach Cafe, Wells-next-the-Sea
The Beach Cafe in Norfolk’s Wells-next-the-Sea is an idyllic pit stop, perfect for you and your pup to rehydrate and refuel after a walk along the beach. Our four-legged friends are well catered for here and in the summer the cafe offers a ‘Wash ‘n’ Wag’ dog washing service to get your pup’s coat clean of sand and seawater, so no need to frantically cover the car in towels before the journey home!
The Long Dog Cafe, Aberdeen
The Long Dog Cafe was set up when the owners realised there was nowhere in the wet and windy weather conditions of Aberdeen to sit in side with their dachshund Gav, and so the cafe was born. Your pup will be well fussed over here and the friendly and relaxed environment is the perfect spot to meet up for coffee or brunch. Treat your four legged from to some of their doggy beer!
Paws for Coffee, London
Richmond Park is a South West London hub for weekend dog walkers, and the Paws for Coffee Richmond cafe is just a stones throw from the park entrance. Run by a family of dog lovers, they understand that our dogs are more than just pets, they’re family, and at Paws for Coffee all pups are welcome to sit at the table with you. We recommend they try a Puppychino, which is warm goats milk with a black pudding at the bottom.
