Many cafes and restaurants located around Botanic Gardens and Sentosa often accommodate pets, but they sure aren’t the only ones. Below, we list several local pet-friendly eateries, which deliver a variety of cuisines while leaving you and your furry companion with sufficient space to roam.
Enjoy a casual seafront dining experience at this restaurant that has a daily menu that celebrates seasonality and freshness with simple cooking methods. Think Seafood Risotto, Fisherman’s Feasts, oysters, whole fish, and more. The breezy alfresco seating with waterfront views offers a relaxing setting for dog lovers and owners to hang out.
After a stroll along the Southern Ridges with your furkid, head to the newly opened Canopy at Hortpark for some hearty grub. The restaurant opens early at 8am and serves a selection of comfort foods such as Classic Eggs Benedict, Dry-aged Beef Burger, Beer Battered Fish N Chips and Truffle Pizza. Nestled amongst lush greenery, it’s a great place to unwind with friends and family while your pets enjoy the great outdoors.
With so much room to spare, it’s no wonder The Coastal Settlement accommodates diners with pets. The popular Eastside brunch spot is known for their tasty Western and locally-inspired mains like the Ribeye Rosti and TCS Nasi Campur, so enjoy them as your furry companion lounge around the spacious outlet.
Part of the dual-concept Barbary Coast residing in Boat Quay, dog-friendly bar Deadfall is perfect for pet owners looking to unwind beside their furkid. At its outdoor bar counter, treat your companion to Barbary Coast-branded Cheddar & Apple biscuit treats from Barking Good, then feel free to use the water bowls and fountain available. Six tie-up points are also found along the bar, although your darling is allowed to roam free. Either way, down alcoholic slushies and ice cold draft beers with your pal by your side.
There’s never a dull moment at Five &2 as the lively resto bistro near Punggol Park is often bustling with furry animals, friendly folks and jovial staff. Never get bored of their menu either, as there are a large variety of cuisines available, including Thai, Italian and Korean. Prefer something local and comforting? The joint also makes a mean Singaporean laksa, which guarantees a slurp-worthy feast.
Dive into fusion food haven at this new cafe at The Grandstand. Think bold flavours, unique dishes and wallet-friendly prices—all comfortably housed within a family- and pet-friendly environment. Speaking of pets, they are more than welcome here. They can frolic freely around the spacious alfresco area while enjoying complimentary doggo treats and water.
Boasting comfy sofa chairs and nautical-style decor, Kontiki could be easily mistaken for a beachside hotspot. And just like most beach clubs and bars, Kontiki also allows pets to get comfortable within their property. So take your best friend to this casual diner at Rhu Cross, as both of you will get to soak in some great views of the Singapore Flyer since the spot overlooks the Marina Reservoir too.
If you’re looking to get your chicken wings fix without leaving your furkid alone at home, head down to Lola’s Cafe. The restaurant is more than happy to make room for your beloved, while you tuck into their Honey Paprika Crispy Wings and other signature items.
Opened by animal lovers, Menage Cafe was created to allow owners and their pets to bond over yummy meals. That's why the eatery offers some delectable food choices for both humans and dogs so you won’t have to worry about feeding your furkid before heading down; just indulge in a feast for two at the Bishan cafe.
With both alfresco and indoor seating, this is a great place to chill and watch the world go by. Sip your morning coffee, hang out with family and friends, and enjoy classic all-day brunch favourites, hearty Asian dishes and Western fare. Don't forget the pets; furkids can relax in the outdoor space while their paw-rents dine.
An English restaurant boasting boutique accommodation and a bar next door, Rabbit Carrot Gun doesn’t mind the company of adorable furkids at its outdoor area. Some house rules apply, and that includes no feeding and no barking of pets; otherwise, the cool locale is more than happy to provide water bowls upon request.
You don’t often see a speciality coffee and tea store being pet-friendly, but Sun Ray Cafe is. Just try some of their fresh bakes and sip on perfectly-roasted cuppas while you play with your furry one(s).
Found at either the hilly greens of Telok Blangah as part of Alkaff Mansion, or at the open-air Seletar countryside as part of The Summerhouse, Wildseed is the place to be for all-day brunch fare. Grab a cuppa and delectable pastries at either outpost; they boast serene surrounds and room for your pet to roam.
