It’s summertime, and you are enjoying your delicious meal on the outdoor patio of a restaurant. You look through the window and find other customers comfortably embraced by the air conditioning, revelling in their dishes. Desperately wanting to head inside, you turn your head and notice your dog suffering equally under the stifling heat, remembering that only open-air areas welcome pets.
Well, sweat no more—to save you from this scenario, we have found some of the best restaurants in Hong Kong with pet-friendly indoor seating so you and your pet can cool down together.
Looking for delicious bagels or pancakes for brunch? Head to Tuckshop by Social Club with your beloved pets, where plenty of seats are available and natural sunlight streams into the restaurant through their French windows, creating a leisurely atmosphere for customers. Whether you decide to order their smoked salmon bagel ($70) or pancakes with blueberries ($80), we suggest adding on a side of delightfully crispy fries for just $20!

All pet lovers are familiar with The Mills in Tsuen Wan, so before or after shopping with your pets in the mall, visit Koko Coffee Roasters for lunch or dinner! Unlike the restaurants mentioned above, this place has more of a modern edge with the heavy use of stone and steels. Paintings of automobiles and city night views on the walls complement its urban vibe.
Koko Coffee Roasters is also a nice spot to study and work while enjoying some amazing dishes, such as double cheeseburgers with fries ($128) and pulled pork bowl ($148). Your pets will easily find friends both in the mall and restaurant, so feel free to let them mingle!
