Top five dog friendly restaurants

Having tough luck finding places where you can bring your pup? We’ve got you covered.

Elephant Grounds

Elephant Grounds is one of Hong Kong’s most successful cafe chains. Each location is bright and warm, with lots of natural wood grain elements. Coffee is the star at this micro roaster, but its Japanese-inspired menu holds its own.

While Elephant Grounds has a few locations, the Causeway Bay one is especially good for pets given the spacious outdoor area. Guests can enjoy their meals (the donburi and ice cream sandwiches are particularly good) with their furry friends right beside them. The cafe is located in Fashion Walk, which is a popular pedestrian-only zone lined with other restaurants.

A number of locations including Shop C, G/F, 42-28 Fashion Walk, Paterson St, Causeway Bay, 2562 8688,


Classified is a European-style cafe with a focus on homemade artisanal food. It’s been around for years, and continues to be a steady, popular option for locals and expats alike. Must-order dishes include the grass-fed beef burger, eggs royale, and three cheese macaroni.

The coffee is good, as are the wide variety of smoothies and cocktails. Each location has a spacious front area, perfect for guests looking to bring their pets.

A number of locations including 108 Hollywood Road, Tai Ping Shan, 2525 3454,


Out in Quarry Bay, there’s a Mediterranean wine bar with a lovely, spacious outdoor area. Enoteca is located at Taikoo Place, and is often frequented by neighbourhood residents as well as those stopping by the area after a visit to the local farmers’ market or a hike. Food options include Italian and Western favourites like breakfast pizza, french toast and eggs benedict, in addition to Mediterranean options.

Take your pet and soak up the sunshine while enjoying the weekend Pitcher Perfect special, which includes a one litre pitcher of beer or cocktail plus a pizza.

This family-friendly food haven closed down its original Elements premises, but has now re-opened up its doors in Fashion Walk, Causeway Bay. Knowing there’s a clear lack of pet friendly places in the city’s shopping central, the new PAPI boasts a new outdoor seating area – great for hanging out with two-legged and four-legged friends.

PAPI offers simple but mouth-wateringly authentic dishes, with an emphasis on friendly service and a casual dining experience. Expect classic dishes such as handmade tagliolini, or florentina with stewed beef tripe, as well as delectable starters including black truffle parma ham sandwiches.

Tuck into a hearty meal with the family and your fluffy pals at G/F, 8 Cleveland, Fashion Walk, Causeway Bay or make a reservation at 28080820.
