The cafe environment came across and friendly and clean, staff were polite and attentive. My hamburger and piccolo latte were pretty good and my group didn't have any complaints about the food. My dog scoffed down her lunch in less than 5 minutes so I dare say she gives it a thumbs up too. Dogs are allowed off leash and most were very well behaved. Heard some growling somewhere but no fights broke out. Plenty of excited barks as dogs make new friends! I'll definitely be a return customer

This is my second time there, but I remember I didn't have much expectations for the human food since it's a DOG cafe. But turns out, they taste great and is affordable. :) My dog had so much fun with the others there. Oh and did I mention that the place is clean, definitely suitable for kids and you don't have to worry about your dog getting dirty or anything. Totally recommended for families or friends.

Location of cafe isn't too convenient for those who don't drive. Cafe is spacious for doggies to run around. That's a major plus point (and in fact, most important point) since it's a dog-friendly cafe where we can all bring our fur-babies to mingle. Food is yummy & we didn't have to wait too long for our food to be served. We went on a Sunday afternoon (1pm) & surprisingly it was pretty easy to find a parking lot. We will definitely return again. 👍🏼☺️

The food tasted great; the rose latte was perfect, but would be great if its hotter. A full 6 was not given as my past few experiences with the cafe involved forgotten orders and slow service, however, I understand that due to the nature of the cafe, service may not be optimal due to the dogs running about and clearing of waste from the dogs. I will continue to support Happenstance indefinitely.

Wonderful experience as usual at Happenstance Cafe! Great environment for doggy and their owners, coupled with good food (although a tad bit expensive) and great service.

It was okay. My 4th time here. My dog's food was good, he enjoyed it. Our food and drinks were quite nice, liked my Banoffee tart. Lady who attended to us was good. Busy day today with many dogs. Only negative was another waitress who was curt in her responses - had long, dyed blond hair and wearing glasses.
