We know how much you love your canine companion, so we've put together a list of the best dog-friendly restaurants in Hong Kong where you can enjoy breakfast, lunch, brunch or dinner with your pooch
We are all big dog fans here at Honeycombers Hong Kong, having just moved into a pet-friendly coworking space at Garage Collective. They’re our companions, and occasionally our affectionate cuddle partners on the couch during a Netflix movie marathon. So in tribute to our four-legged friends, we’ve put together a list of the best dog-friendly cafes and restaurants in Hong Kong, where you and your pooch can celebrate International Dog Day and enjoy breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner on any day of the week.
This dog-friendly cafe pays close attention and detail to their coffees, homemade bread and ice cream sandwiches, but the Causeway Bay venue also welcomes pooches. The outdoor seating area at Elephant Grounds allows for you and your dog to sit comfortably for breakfast or lunch, enjoying dishes such as buttermilk pancakes, acai yoghurt bowls and avocado toast for those who have a vegetarian or vegan diet.
