7 of the best Vancouver coffee shops where you can bring your dog

Need your caffeine fix but don't want to leave your pup at home? These cafés have all made space for our four-legged friends to join us.


What's better than the perfect cup of coffee? Enjoying it with your pup by your side, obviously!


Luckily, there's some great spots in Vancouver that don't just offer delicious coffee and tasty baked treats, but also invite you to bring your dog along to sit outside with you and enjoy the last days of the summer sun together!


Technically, The City of Vancouver does not allow dogs on patios that serve food, but these cafes offer the perfect spot to tie your dog up by your side while you grab a coffee - and because they are ran by dog lovers, some of them will even provide a water bowl or treat for your pup.


1. 49th Parallel Coffee Roasters

With 3 different locations in Vancouver, 49th Parallel is very popular amongst locals thanks to their speciality coffee roasted in the Pacific Northwest (and their picture perfect turquoise cups,of course.) The company endeavours to sustainably source and craft exceptional coffee and even better, their locations all welcome dogs.


There's space to tie your pups up outside the Kits and Main Street stores, and your furry bestie can join you on the patio at their Downtown store. So you can enjoy a coffee and a delicious Lucky's Doughnut with your pup right by your side.
