A Day in the Life of.... The Best Dog Friendly Cafes in Auckland
Ozone Coffee Roasters
Neighbourhood Café Ozone Coffee Roasters is an absolute must-visit for pup paw-renters and dog lovers alike. Not only is the food second to none (we’re looking at you Eggs Bene on Bubble ‘n’ squeak cakes) with fresh ingredients and intriguing pairings, but they’ll also welcome your pup inside the café to sit quietly under your table while you eat (a godsend in Winter).
Get up bright and early for your caffeine fix while chomping on one of Ripe Deli’s savoury brioche’s (they’re gone by 10 am- you’ve been warned) while your pooch laps from the water bowls on offer. It’s all served up in takeaway form, so if you prefer to be on the move, head five mins down the road to Grey Lynn Park.
Geeks on Sainsbury
Geeks on Sainsbury have lived up to their name because they really are experts at basically all things food and coffee. If you haven’t tried their waffles, you need to. Their coffee? Outstanding. Oh, and did we mention they’re huge dog fans? There is a 99% chance there will be other dogs (sign us up). If your little angel is well behaved, there may or may not be a treat at the ready. Once you’ve finished some insanely good tucker, take your fur baby for a stroll to Fowld’s Park for some greenery and a good run around.
For any dog-crazy, toast-loving, coffee-enthused peeps—Crumb is the one for you. Grab a cup of joe (and a ‘puppercino’ for your pooch) and sit out on the bean bags for some relaxing good vibes. These guys will probably love your dog as much as you do. Grey Lynn Park is just a 12-minute walk away, which your pupper will almost certainly be stoked about.
Takapuna Beach Café
Right on the beach, the Takapuna Beach Café know how to look after their dog-loving guests. With three different dog troughs (small, medium and tall) attached to the walls and plenty of outdoor seating it’s a dog haven. Afterwards, head to the beach where there are dozens of dogs for your pooches to make friends with. Who knows, you might find a friend or two, too. Shout out to the fabulous Sanket who’s amazing customer service is second to none.
