The best dog-friendly cafés in Melbourne

posted by The Daily Fluff July 4, 2018 0 comments

Is there anything better than starting your weekend off with some quality time in the company of your furry friend? We didn’t think so! Many cafés in Melbourne aren’t pooch friendly though…sad face. We’ve put together a list of some cafés that let those with two legs…and four legs in for a coffee!

Serotonin Eatery – 52 Madden Grove, Burnley

The courtyard of this bright little café is dog friendly, so you can bring your pooch to brunch! Albeit, the courtyard is quite small so it’s best suited for small-medium sized pups. Serotonin do give you the option of taking a picnic basket to the park across the road though, so on a sunny day it’d be a perfect spot for your furry friend!

The Dog Café – 120 Boronia Road, Boronia

This Boronia café is a haven for furry friends and their hoomans. They’ve got coffee for the two-legged creatures and puppacinos for the four-legged. You can even spoil your furbabies with a treat or two – they’ve got donuts, cake pops and more! They even host doggie birthday parties!

Patch Café – 1/32 Bendigo Street, Richmond

Patch is a paleo inspired café serving locally sourced foods to the health conscious. It’s located in a transformed warehouse space in Richmond and is open 7 days a week. Pet owners will be delighted to know that the undercover outdoor area is pet friendly!

The Farm Café – 18 St Heliers Street, Abbotsford

If you’ve got little ones, a visit here would be the perfect day out as the café is located in the gorgeous surrounds of the Collingwood Children’s Farm! The café loves having furry visitors – they even have an Instagram account dedicated to dogs at the farm! Check it out! – https://www.instagram.com/dogsofthefarmcafe/

Cornerstone & Co. – 75 Ludstone Street, Hampton

Cornerstone & Co. is a Japanese Italian fusion café located in the leafy back streets of Hampton. Pups are welcome in the cosy courtyard out the back. There’s even heaters to keep everyone warm!

Have you visited any of these spots before? Which ones are your favourite? Let us know in the comments below! Happy brunching!

3 Things To Do With Your Furry Friend This Long Weekend

posted by The Daily Fluff March 9, 2017 0 comments

Are you looking forward to this long weekend? All of us at the Daily Fluff sure are! Big plans in motion? A mini vay-cay perhaps? We can assure you that your furry friend is looking forward to having that extra day to spend with you. In case you’re out of ideas here are 3 things you can do with your pet over this weekend.

  1. A trip to the Mornington Peninsula:

What’s on? Well not only could you visit many of the sandy beaches, this weekend the Mornington Farmers markets happen to be on. Held on the second Saturday of every month, the Farmer’s markets give you the opportunity to meet the hard workers behind the wholesome food; the butchers, bakers and growers. The market is a go-to for those looking for sustainable, chemical free and less travelled food that is actually sold by those who make or grow it! With plenty of stalls offering a variety of goods, you are bound to find lots of goodies from cheeses, breads and jams to meats, seafoods, beers and wine. Talk about the perfect date with your pooch!

  1. Royal Botanical Gardens, South Yarra:

Covering 63 hectares with thousands of different plant life including beautiful flowers and extravagant trees, the Botanical Gardens is an excellent place to take your pup on that extra long walk you’ve been meaning to do! Dogs do have to stay on-leash but they won’t mind as the gardens offer an escape from the city and concrete jungle of Melbourne. It really feels like you’re lost in nature in there. And to top it off, a visit to the Observatory Cafe is a must for a cup of coffee, a glass (or two) of wine or a scoop of ice-cream (there’s a decent selection). Your pooch can enjoy it with you since it’s dog-friendly!

  1. ‘The Abby’ Abbotsford Convent:

An exciting dog-friendly spot The Abby, is open every day of the year which makes it the perfect destination this long weekend! Enjoy a fresh baguette from the Convent bakery (famous for their baked delicious goods) then grab a drink from the bar. To conclude, take a picnic and you can both relax and enjoy the live music on the grass. The grounds of The Abby are great for a walk and if you’re up for a splurge there’s also an award-winning restaurant.

These are only a few ideas for what you could do over this long weekend with your furry friend. So we hope you decide to take your dog with you when you head out on an adventure!

What are you planning on doing with your pup this long weekend?
