Pet-friendly cafes in Singapore
With most restaurants and cafes adopting a no-pets stance in Singapore, going on dates or simply hanging out at your favourite cafes often mean you’ll have to leave your beloved pets at home. But that doesn’t always have to be the case. These eight pet-friendly cafes in Singapore prove you can enjoy a cafe visit with your pooch or moggy in tow.
