Dog-Friendly Cafés Singapore

Going out and having fun is great. So is catching up with family and friends over coffee or tea. But leaving our fur kids at home while we do so? Well, that sucks. 

Where can you take dogs in Singapore?

Well, there is a good selection of dog-friendly places in Singapore to bring your pup to. Places like Marina Barrage, Botanic Gardens, Bishan Park, and Tanjong Beach in Sentosa are all crowd favourites. But if you're looking for places out of the city centre, you can always head to Sengkang Riverside Park, Punggol Point Park, Sembawang Park, and Sunny Heights. 

Can I bring my dog to the Kopitiam?

Unfortunately, no. You can't bring your dog to the Kopitiam (coffee shop) according to Environmental Public Health (food hygiene) regulations. The regulations specify that licensed food establishments like hawker centres and coffee shops don't allow live animals on their premises.
