If you’re living in Bangalore, then you’d have probably heard of ‘Dog Cafes’ around. Looking at the types of cafes out here, this seems to be relatively new. And let me tell you, this new business here is going really well. It isn’t that there are way too many dog lovers in Bangalore. It’s just that people have more money than time.
Anyway, before we talk about the Dog Cafes here in Bangalore, let’s just find out what a dog cafe is.
What is a dog cafe?
A dog cafe (or a pet’s cafe) is another animal cafe where a customer can interact with animals (usually dogs) in the cafe. In some cafes, you can also bring your dog along to play with. By far, I personally think it’s one of the friendliest types of cafes ever made. I mean… who wouldn’t love to spend their waiting time by playing with cute friendly dogs?
Being a dog lover without being able to ever own one, I think it’s an amazing idea for a restaurant. I’m sure there are a lot of people out there like me who love dogs and still can’t keep one at home. So for such, a dog cafe can be a true paradise.
Some dog cafes maintain very healthy and not to mention, expensive dogs. German Shepherds, Husky, Poodle, Pug, Pomeranian- you name it! They’ve got them all!
Dog Cafe Prices in Bangalore
I don’t know about the other cities out there, but this is how it usually works in Bangalore: If you’re there just to play with the dogs, you’ll need to pay just to play with them. When I went to Snoopy Paws Cafe, they charged 100 rupees on weekdays and 150 rupees on weekends to play with them.
However, if I were you, I would buy some food there. Because if you have an order placed, you can spend with your time the dogs while waiting for your order. So when I and my friend went to one of these cafes, we order a pasta salad or something which would relatively take a longer time to prepare.
The longer time it takes to prepare, the longer we play with the cuties out there. Smart, aren’t we? Anyway, about the food- since it’s a dog cafe, the food is usually a little expensive too. A usual sandwich might start around 100 bucks. Well, if no one comes to just play with their dogs, someone’s got to pay for the poor creatures’ maintenance.
But hey, that’s just my thought about it!

This turns out to be the most popular Dog Cafe in Bangalore. I have to say, I really like the sound of the place. They have 13 dogs in total, some of them being Labrador, Retriever, and Husky. Apart from their dogs, you can bring your own dog too.
What more can one expect? As it turns out, that isn’t just it! They also have a dog pool that’s set up on weekends. Now, isn’t that lovely?
Located at: Abhayadhama Rd, White Rose Layout, Whitefield, Bangalore
I can consider this to be one of the most peaceful dog cafes on this list. I assume it’s partly because they have the cafe lied across a huge area. Yet, the place seems to have a cozy touch to it. The food is pretty delicious and homely too. And about the dogs?
They’ve got two huskies, labrador, pug(s) and even a poodle if I remember right… the poodle’s the cutest as it always keeps running around in circles and never really comes to anyone in particular- yep, it was pretty hilarious.
I spent an entire evening in this cafe. I enjoyed it so much that I wrote a separate blog for it! So here’s it:
Located at: Survey no. 4/2 and 4/4, Yarappanahalli main road, Hennur Main Rd, Kannur, Bangalore
If you’re looking for a place to chill out a little or take a small vacation- then this might just be it. It turns out to be a pretty peaceful place where you can bring your beloved pet along to spend a soothing night under the stars… spoiler alert: It’s an outdoor cafe!
Oh, and another thing, this place is really great at night- typically for 18+ age groups.
Located at: Bangalore Mysore Highway, South Bangalore
I wouldn’t call Toit a cafe. Not even close actually. It’s a brew-pub. In fact, it’s known to be one of the busiest brew-pubs in Bangalore. And the other fact that the place is animal-friendly spikes it up even more.
On the other hand, apart from being known for being a dog-friendly place, it is also popular for its delicious food and outdoor seating area which makes the experience with your pet all the more enjoyable.
Located at: 298, 100 Feet Rd, Near KFC Restaurant, Indira Nagar II Stage, Stage 1, Indiranagar, Bangalore
Just as the name ‘Green Theory’ speaks out for itself, the little cafe here is surrounded by greenery all around. If your doggy wants a little air, just like you do, then this would be perfect.
While you enjoy your delicious vegetarian delicacies from the menu, your pet can bask in all the attention from the dog-lovers around and the cafe members themselves too! Now that would definitely serve as a fresh breath for your little companion, wouldn’t it?
Located at: 15, Convent Road, Ashok Nagar, Bangalore
This one’s a little unique and interesting with their menu recipes. All the recipes are collected from mothers all over and it’s vegetarian. And yes, this place is open for doggies too.
They even have a small playground area for little puppies to play in. Though this isn’t the main feature of the Maia restaurant as it mainly focuses on its delicacies, it’s an available feature alright. Speaking of delicacies and mothers, the restaurant also has a very specific theme that plays its part- mostly comfortable coaches with long tables.
Located at: Siri Pristine, Off, Marathahalli – Sarjapur Outer Ring Rd, Green Glen Layout, Bellandur, Bangalore
A little about Urban Solace: They’ve got open seating, live music, pet-friendly area… what else would you want? There’s really nothing to exaggerate about here is there? They’ve got everything required for fine quality time that you need with your pet.
Anyway, excitement aside, they also serve alcohol (visible on the photo, ain’t it?) and WiFi is available alright.
Located at: 32, Annaswamy Mudaliar Road, Opposite Lake, Ulsoor, Bangalore
Apart from being spacious and a pet-loving area, it is also considered to be one of the best vegetarian restaurants in Bangalore. The spacious area with green surroundings gets a homely vibe to the spot, and perhaps for your beloved pet too. Now, want to spend a lazy day by enjoying your meal for a long, long time with a couple of drinks peacefully… along with your dog?
Then this might just be perfect for you!
Located at: 89, Near BDA Complex, 11th Cross, 60 Feet Road, Off Double Road, Indiranagar, Bangalore
The cute little name given to this cafe itself makes it all the more alluring, doesn’t it? Well, the cafe really is sweet on the inside as well. Believe it or not, the cozy-vibed, two-floored cafe offers food at considerably reasonable rates.
On an estimate, one might end up spending around 500 bucks for two. If that’s not a reasonable price for a date, then I don’t know what is. Looking at the lighter end, the theme of the cafe is to help get your pawed friend a friendly-vibe.
Located at: 533, 2nd Main, KPCL Layout, Kasavanahalli, Kasavanahalli, Bangalore
Ella’s Petscape Cafe offers what a typical cafe would offer: Fast-food and pizzas. All these places I mentioned are pet-friendly anyway, so what’s special?
Here it is: I think it’s a dream come true for a dog-owner and even more for the doggie! It’s more of a spa and a cafe for the cute paws here. Yep, I just said a spa… they literally have services like bath, grooming, brushing, fur and nail trimming all for your dog. They also have a pet store attached to it where one can get dog accessories, bowls and so on…
Located at: 2nd Main Road, Kasavanahalli, Sarjapur Road, Sarjapur Road, Bangalore
Comparing the variety of cuisines available on the other cafes on this list, Teal Door Cafe has the widest range of cuisines available. Along with our ever-loved Masala Dosas and Idlis, the Western essence of sandwiches, nachos, cheesecakes, and pancakes are also available.
Sure, it’s got great interiors- but all the love and success it’s got is out of its delicacies and of course- for being a pet-friendly environment.
Located at: 618, 2nd Main Road, Binnamangala, Hoysala Nagar, Indiranagar, Bangalore
Nah, don’t worry. I’m not that stupid to bring up a cafe that’s not in Bangalore out of nowhere. Well, however, this cafe is a Goan restaurant just as the name suggests alright. And yes, this place is pet-friendly too.
While the space on the ground floor is for your doggie to munch away on dog food and cakes, you can go up to enjoy some great Goan delicacies- something that the place is meant for. Some of the delicacies that are on the highlights here are Roast Chicken and Pork Sorpotel.
Located at: 38, Castle St, Richmond Town, Bangalore
Coming to an end here…
To wrap it up right here, these would be all the cafes that are totally worth visiting in Bangalore for an animal-loving person. A dog-loving person to be specific obviously.
