Hong Kong Dec 21, 2022

Don't want to leave your pets home alone? Head on down to these pet-friendly dining spots and you won't have to!

Despite having an abundance of nature spots to bring their fur-kid on a day trip amidst the concrete jungle, many pawrents still find themselves having trouble finding a pet-friendly restaurant or dining establishment.

Well, if you live along the west side of Hong Kong, here are some pet-friendly cafes and restaurants to visit with your beloved fur-kid.

Pet-friendly restaurants and cafes


42 Forbes Street, Kennedy Town

This casual bistro that’s under the umbrella of the French Creations F&B Group is a feast for all your senses. Serving traditional Mediterranean tapas with a lively open kitchen vibe, you know your tummy will be well looked after here.

If you head to the second floor, the restaurant transforms into an elegant French wine tasting room, with over 130 bottles to whet your palate. Don't forget to book the street-side tables if you are coming with your pet.


161 Hollywood Road, Central

Feel right at Hjem (Norwegian for home) with your fur-friends. Tucked right in a quaint neighbourhood, this Scandi-restaurant encourages you to slow down and seek respite amidst the chaos. Pop by this welcoming Nordic restaurant for you smørrebrød and cinnamon roll fix.

Shady Acres

46 Peel Street, Central

This unpretentious bar located along the narrow alleyway packs a punch with an extensive list of over 200 handpicked bottles ranging from old to new world wines. And if you get peckish, fret not as they also offer delectable bar bites. Just a note, Shady Acres only has a tiny standing area for you and your furry friend to hang around.

Blue Supreme

21 Tung Street, Sheung Wan

Blue Supreme is a stylish gastropub specialising in modern American cuisine and Belgium beer. You won’t find hotdogs or burgers on the menu, instead the gastropub prides itself in having an ever-evolving menu that prioritises local ingredients.

Pet-friendly cafes

Winstons Coffee

11 Davis Street, Kennedy Town

Whether you are in the mood for an espresso or an Espresso Martini, Winstons Coffee has got you covered. Apart from being known as the friendly neighbourhood coffee shop with a killer playlist, both of their outlets are also pet-friendly.

First Boy Coffee

33 Praya Street, Kennedy Town

First Boy Coffee was established by Ravishing Coffee Solutions, a coffee machine and equipment supplier, so you can bet that their coffee is of the highest quality. Unlike many cafes where pets are only allowed at the outside areas, First Boy Coffee welcomes pets to roam around the coffee shop as they wish!

ARF Coffee Roasters

23 Po Tuck Street, Sai Wan

ARF Coffee, once known as Artisan Cafe, is tucked along Po Tuck Street, a small street that is accessible from Hill Road. This cosy retro style coffee shop was brought to the spotlight after it was used as a venue for a local romantic comedy film, Love in The Buff.

No Milkshake No Life

31-37 Hill Road, Sai Ying Pun

Just as the name suggests, this cafe specialises in milkshakes, from your standard banana chocolate to your not-so-typical boozy milkshakes like almond caramel Baileys, red wine, and Guinness Oreos. Burgers and grilled cheese occupy the majority of the menu, making this the perfect place to check out on a cheat day.

Poise Coffee

1-2, St Stephen's Lane, Sai Ying Pun

This minimalist and no-frills cafe boasts a spacious area that allows you to unwind, read, work or people-watch. Enjoy an array of cafe dishes that include your standard all-day breakfast to hearty salads and crispy toasts. Also, before you leave, remember to snap an OOTD of your four-legged friend on the wooden bench below Poise Coffee’s logo.
