12 Best Pet-friendly Cafes in Dubai

Seeing the wagging tail of your beloved pet is sometimes all you need to see to make all the stress melt away after a long day at the office, though it is fun to head out to dinner in garden or book cafes but sometimes pets are not allowed. However, several cafes and restaurants in Dubai welcome pets, so you don’t have to coop up your furry family member at home. 

Call ahead to guarantee acess for you and your pet, though. Here is the list of pet-friendly cafes you can head over to with your beloved furbabies in Dubai! Because sometimes, enjoying a nice meal with a beautiful view is much more exquisite when you have your furry companion with you.

1. Ella’s Eatery

With its relaxed atmosphere and picturesque views over the water, this Palm Jumeirah spot is a must-visit. Furthermore, outdoor spaces near the water are dog-friendly. To start your day off right, try one of their many delicious breakfast options: flatbread shakshouka, overnight oats, peanut toast, blueberry pancakes, eggs rancheros, açai bowls, and more. For lunch and dinner, choose from their many delicious salads, pizzas, and more.

2. LDC Kitchen + Coffee

New to One JLT, LDC Kitchen + Coffee offers a creative menu that human patrons will surely enjoy. Even if your guest of honor has four paws, you can still take advantage of the beautifully landscaped patio area, complete with string lights and a plethora of plants. While you tuck into some tasty fare, your canine companion will be offered water in special bowls.

3. Counter Culture Café

Those who have just finished a stroll with their dogs in Dubai Marina can relax with a cup of coffee at this casual café. What could be better than a morning date with your dog and a delicious breakfast (eggs Benedict, apple cinnamon pancakes, and more)? You and your four-legged pal are welcome to enjoy the morning air and some breakfast treats and water on the terrace.

4. Jones the Grocer

Jones The Grocer, a well-known Australian grocery store chain, now has a location on Dubai’s newest beachfront promenade, Palm West Beach on Palm Jumeirah. You can choose to either eat inside the restaurant, on the terrace, or on the beach, where seating and comfy bean bags will be provided. And your dog can come along to enjoy the sights with you!

5. Chicago Meatpackers

You can bring your dog to this laid-back American restaurant at The Pointe on Palm Jumeirah. While you and your canine companion take in the views of Atlantis, The Palm, be sure to ask the staff for the dog-specific menu. Your canine companions are welcome to join you in the garden, where they can eat dry kibble and drink fresh water.

6. Café Artois

Bridgewater Tavern’s Café Artois now has outdoor seating and welcomes pets. All pets are welcome in the designated area overlooking the Dubai Canal, where they can socialize with other animals and snack on treats.

7. Breeze Beach Bar & Grill

If you and your dog are looking for a place to spend the day by the water, look no further than this beachside spot. Located at the very tip of Palm Jumeirah’s Club Vista Mare, this dog-friendly restaurant serves up tasty burgers and salads while you and your family take in the salty air and warm rays of the sun. Get some doggy ice cream from the concession stand for your pet. 

8. Cat Café Vibrissae

Coffee, cats, and hugs are what you can expect at Cat Café Vibrissae. There’s not much else we’d need, to be honest. We’re ready to have a good time thanks to the Cat Café Vibrissae’s extensive beverage menu, which includes rose latte, pistachio latte, toffee nut latte, and Dalgona coffee, and the friendly resident cats. However, while you can’t bring your furry four-legged friends with you, you can certainly make some new ones here.

9. Bounty Beets

The health-conscious population of Dubai loves Bounty Beets, a health food cafe that is always a hit on Instagram. Further, canine companions are encouraged to accompany their owners. Dine on plant-based dishes, nutritious smoothies, and, of course, velvety coffees while relaxing in the tranquil garden with your best friend.

10. Arrows & Sparrows

The whole family can relax knowing that they will be served at this adorable café because not only are dogs welcome, but the children’s menu is excellent as well. After an early morning stroll, fuel up with a delicious breakfast here. Don’t forget to order the “Twisted Avocado Toast,” which features a delicious blend of guacamole, poached eggs, roasted tomatoes, and feta. In Dubai, this is one of the best dog-friendly spots thanks to its outdoor space.

11. Ailuromania Cat Café

An hour at the region’s first cat café is a meow-velous way to spend some downtime with furry friends. Cats and kittens, some of the cutest you’ll ever see, can be found lounging around or, if you’re lucky, in your lap at this cafe.

You can play with the critters, order pizza, pasta, or waffles, and help yourself to free H2O, chai, or joe. Ailuromania may have worn down over the years and serve only standard drinks, but we’re glad it’s a safe haven for some cats that would otherwise be abandoned. This is the best part: You can adopt the cats and give them a wonderful, permanent home right now.

12. 1762 JLT

At 1762 JLT, you can find a selection that is hard to find anywhere else. It features a boulangerie, an à la carte menu, and a hands-on food lab. There’s even a sizable patio where canines and their human companions can take in the fresh air and relax.

Outside at 1762 JLT Stripped, dogs are welcome to join their human companions in enjoying the sunshine and a selection of 1972 treats, including those made especially for canine guests. This JLT establishment is a dog-friendly favorite, so you can both enjoy a treat here. And the best part is that it’s open nonstop from 8 a.m. to 12 a.m. every day of the year, making for one very happy hooman! You don’t have to worry about leaving your fur babies while you’re enjoying a delicious meal.
