cafés where pets are the protagonists

More than pet-friendly, these places encourage interaction between humans and animals


Espai de Cats

Barcelona, Spain

Here, cats are residents and “visiting” pets are not allowed. The space also serves as an adoption center, promoting classes in the wellbeing of the little creatures.

Carrer de Terol, 29


The Dog Cafe

Melbourne, Australia

There are two menus there: one for you and the other for your dog. There’s even a dog treat made with carob. Another highlight are the beet “pupcakes.” The place also hosts parties where pets are welcome.

Rear of 120 Boronia Rd


Boris and Horton

New York, United States

It was the first café in the city to allow dogs inside. It also hosts adoption fairs and events promoted by animal protection NGOs. The vegetarian menu and the company of the two pets for which the place is named will make you spend more time there.

195 Avenue A


Lady Dinah´s Cat Emporium

London, England

In this café, the cats are residents and pets are not allowed. The place’s décor is evocative of the settings in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and the magic is reflected in their desserts, like red velvet cake.

152-154 Bethnal Green Rd
