Melbourne Pet Cafés | Dogs & Cats

Melbourne Pet Cafés | Dogs & Cats

Melbourne loves its coffee and it loves its pets.

Combine the two and you have a pet cafe.

Pet friendly venues that welcome our furry friends, both cats or dogs.

There are now many pet friendly cafes, with new ones popping up every day, so rather than present a few in an ever increasing list, here were provide links to sites that list hundreds of pet cafes.


Dog House
195 Johnston Street, Collingwood

Australia's first dedicated dog cafe, raw dog food & accessories store.

--> Dog House

Doggy Dining
Doggy Dining helps you find places where you can eat and drink with your beloved pets! Links to state dog friendly cafes, restaurants and bars.


Paw Club
Use the map to find puppy-friendly cafes and restaurants, parks & beaches, accommodation and boarding kennels.


My Dog®
My Dog® (Dog Food) has a handy search tool that allows you to find local dog-friendly social venues to visit with your special little friend. My Dog® members can add details of dog-friendly parks, cafés, beaches and other social venues to share with others.


On you can find Australian dog clubs, shops & businesses selling dog clothes & accessories, vets, training & obedience and Dog Friendly Cafes.


Pets in the City
Pets in the City is a free guide prepared by the Petcare Information and Advisory Service (PIAS) to help city-dwellers make informed decisions about dog and cat ownership.


There is always dog friendly parks like Royal Botanic Gardens (on leash), Albert Park Lake, Abbotsford Convent plus many other local suburban parks.


Cat Cafe
Ahhh but its not what you are thinking. Unlike dog friendly cafes where you can take the mut, at the Cat Cafe you visit and play with cats that belong to the cafe. An Australian has just opened one in London and is booked out for months.

The cafe is set to open in North Melbourne (pending council approval). A recent trip to Japan inspired owners Anita and Myles Loughran to bring the concept to Australia.

The cafe offers patrons the opportunity to watch and play with resident cats. However due to regulations cafe goers won't be able to pat a cat as they sip their cafe latte.

The 10 rescue shelter cats will be kept upstairs away from food and beverages and customers can pay $10 to play with them for one hour and then a lower rate per half hour longer.

Cats will be chosen based on their temperament and with help from the Geelong Animal Welfare Society and The Lost Dogs Home in North Melbourne.

Cat Cafe is due to open in July 2014. Source:

Other than that, we could not find another cafe in Melbourne for cats, but if you know of one please let us know (below).

You could always head to the Blackcat in Fitzroy serving up a fresh brunch menu and local coffee by day, and craft beers, spirits, art and DJ’s at night. One of Melbourne's best beer gardens. You cannot take your cat, but can think about moogy while you enjoy delicious tucker.

252 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy 3065
Every day: 10am-1am
P: 9419 6230

Other Cat Cafe's
--> Green Cat Cafe, Melbourne
--> Paris Cat Jazz Club
--> Coffee Cat Cafe, Pakenham

--> Moggy's Cafe and Bar, Moorooduc


If you think Melbourne is mad about pets, Japan has a Owl Cafe!
