Cafes are the new restaurants. Our top 5 dog friendly cafes in London.
Friends of Ours
London has an amazing café culture. They are more relaxed than restaurants and are therefore great places to catch up with friends or just have a long weekend brunch.
Here are our favourite cafes we visited in 2023 which have great food and vibes.
Tomtom Coffee House
TomTom Coffee House is a fabulous café in Belgravia, famous for its coffee (the clue is in the name) which serves fabulous breakfasts, brunch and lunch.
Delicious sandwiches, perfectly poached eggs and fluffy pancakes with oodles of maple syrup. What's not to love?
The café is small inside but pooches are welcome and in finer weather, the outside seating is a lively place from which to watch the comings and goings of Belgravia.
Where: TomTom Coffee House 114 Ebury St, Elizabeth St, London SW1W 9QD
Chestnut Bakery Belgravia
Chestnut Bakery have 2 lovely locations in Belgravia and Covent Garden and both are filled with the most delicious selection of both sweet and savoury baked goods - all baked fresh on site.
We particularly love the flatbreads fresh from the clay oven and get excited each month to see their pastry of the month.
Dogs are so welcome here they even put on something special for us every August for National Dog Day.
Where: Chestnut Bakery 17-21 Elizabeth St, London SW1W 9RP
24 Floral St, London WC2E 9DS
Common Ground is a very popular neighbourhood café in Finsbury Park serving globally inspired dishes for brunch and lunch. The Turkish eggs are out of this world and
Weekends here are very busy and they don't take bookings so be prepared to queue but it's worth it!
Pooches are very welcome in the café and in the cute covered rear garden too!
Where: Common Ground 49 Stroud Green Rd, Finsbury Park, London N4 3EF
Friends of Ours
Friends of Ours are definitely just that! This super friendly café in Hackney prides itself on using ingredients from local and UK suppliers which is something that is close to our hearts.
The brunch and lunch dishes are not just incredibly delicious but are so beautifully presented, they are like works of art. Try the avo on toast with bread from local baker Dusty Knuckle, washed down with Good & Proper Tea from Clerkenwell.
Pooches are welcome anytime and they have plenty of outside seating overlooking
Where: Friends of Ours 61 Pitfield St, London N1 6BU
