Doggos are spoilt for choice with biscuits, donuts, ice-creams, meatballs and puppycinos all available on the menu.
Goodness Gracious Cafe

A favourite with locals, this chic café offers plenty of space to relax with your fur baby in the shady garden or on the deck. It also serves up Hugo’s doggie ice-cream, a coconut based frozen treat available in three flavours including peanut butter and bacon, strawberry and dog-safe chocolately carob. Best of all, Hugo’s is 100 per cent natural and made with human-grade ingredients.

Honey & Bear Cafe
153 Campbell St, Bowen Hills
This newcomer to the café scene loves dogs so much they’ve even started their own hashtag – #dogsofhoneyandbear.

This delightful park-side dog-friendly café turned two in October 2018 and it’s easy to see why the locals love it. Choose from its menu of tapas, burgers and share plates and sweets such as blueberry mess or honey pear and chestnut trifle. It also made the list of Top 50 Best Brunches in Queensland. Doggos are more than welcome at this eatery run by a team of friendly and passionate staff and when you’re done, take your dog for a walk down to the Shaftesbury Street Big Dog Park nearby. Winning!
