Dog-friendly cafes & spaces in the city

Does one ever need an excuse for an adventure with their favourite furry friend? Grab the leash and head out for a stroll to one of these amazing dog-friendly city spaces.


269 Gilles Street, Adelaide

Tucked away in the city’s southeast, this cosy cafe sits along leafy Gilles Street with plenty of tables outside for you and your pooch. Built on lovingly homemade food and community vibes, Fawn provides fresh water bowls and plenty of poles for leads. While the cafe proudly serves SA based Dawn Patrol coffee for its human guests, pups go crazy for the newly added ‘puppacino’. Check out Fawn on Instagram to see the cafe’s adorable mascot poodle pup Murphy.

The Flying Fig Deli

161 Jeffcott Street, North Adelaide

Dogs are always welcome at refined New York style Jewish deli The Flying Fig. The pet-friendly North Adelaide eatery offers seating outside with water bowls and lead poles. Your pup might even become ‘insta-famous’ with owners regularly featuring a special furry visitor on their Instagram page as ‘Fig Dog of the Week’. You can chow down on a classic New York Reuben, stacked with smoked pastrami and pickled veg, while your pooch soaks up the fresh air and sunshine.

Pelzer Park / Pityarilla (Park 19)

Adelaide Southern Park Lands | Glen Osmond Road

After a massive $5 million revamp Pityarilla, commonly referred to as Marshmallow Park, opened an impressive fenced, off-leash dog park for canines of all sizes late last year. Located in the Southern Park Lands, the space has been transformed into a pet-paradise for dogs with a natural obstacle course including logs, rocks and turfed area. With a water play feature for pups and a sheltered BBQ area for owners, Pityarrilla serves as the perfect picnic choice for a day out with the whole family.

The Store

157 Melbourne Street, North Adelaide

A perfect weekend retreat for dog owners, The Store is located just a short distance away from North Adelaide’s popular enclosed dog park. Take your pupper for a play and then indulge at North Adelaide’s premium all-day brunch hotspot. With The Store’s huge outdoor dining area, Pooches can quench their thirst on the endless supply of water while you reenergise with an espresso martini.
