Pet ownership is getting increasingly tougher in Singapore. Regulatory zealousness is suffocating pet owners with either size restrictions for dogs or fear for the safety of your cats in public housing estates.
Unlike humans, our pets do not have the luxury of free will to leave as and when they like—having the need to spend most parts of their days cooped up at home awaiting our return.
Amidst all the rules and signs that bars pets from entering certain premises, there are a few establishments that will welcome you and your pets with wide open arms. Here are 15 Pet-friendly Cafes & Restaurants in Singapore That Both You And Your Pet Will Absolutely Adore.
AH B CAFE
One of the most meticulously thought-through pet-friendly cafes around, Ah B Cafe has a gorgeous interior filled with wooden accents to make every patron feel right at home. The spacious layout ensures ample room for pets to roam, explore and socialise in a safe environment with installed gates and baby-proofing materials and precautions.
Pet owners are not left out of the equation as their distinctively Western Japanese fusion cuisine is guaranteed to satisfy your taste buds. Before you know it, you would be able to spot that puddle of drool from your envious pet.
