It’s not a perfect weekend without your furry best friend, so bring them along to your coffee dates and brunches at these five spots.
What are the three main components to a perfect weekend? For many in Hong Kong, they are: great coffee, delicious food, and spending the day with adorable pups! When your four-legged friend spends most of their week waiting for you to come home from work, it’s nice to take them out on the weekend and spoil them a bit. That’s why we rounded up some of our favourite dog friendly cafes and restaurants for your next weekend adventure.
We love these two local spots for our morning cup of coffee, and an evening cocktail or two. And we love them even more because we can swing by with our pooches! Snag one of the outside stools and you can caffeinate with your best mate, because that’s what weekends are all about. Winstons Coffee is also one of the few independent shops in the city, so it’s well worth supporting them at their Sai Ying Pun and Kennedy Town locations.
Shop 4, G/F Rich Court, 213 Queen’s Road West, Sai Ying Pun; +852 2559 5078
