Small and cosy cafe makes monitoring dogs easy. Ample space for small dogs to roam about. Food and drinks are reasonably priced at this cafe too.

Nice place, clean and no smell even with so many dogs. Would be even better if the staff were more attentive to orders and refill tea

Always come here with my dog. Quite a number of dogs for them to mingle around. Big space, definitely. But food wise a bit pricey.
