Perth's Healthiest Pet Friendly Cafes
One of the hardest parts about leaving the house is saying goodbye to your pets. My fur babies have mastered the puppy dog 'don't leave me' eyes, which just pulls at my heartstrings every time I pick up my bag and head towards the front door. Unfortunately 'bring your pet to work day' …every day, hasn't caught on with the bosses so unless you work at a doggy day care, bringing your dog or cat to the office or yoga class in Perth isn't really an option. But it turns out, there are plenty of opportunities to involve your pets in everyday outings, whether it be coffee catch ups with friends, runs along the beach or even birthday parties, we're here to prove your furry friend doesn't always have to miss out on all the fun! Based on a Facebook thread we posted a while back, we asked for your opinion on the best pet friendly Cafe`s in Perth. You voted and we listened; so here it is, the top healthy pet friendly cafe's around Perth.

A cold pressed juice and smoothie bar and cafe serving all natural, vegan and gluten free food. This pet friendly spot is situated on the main cafe strip in Mount Hawthorn and offers outdoor seating to soak up the sun with your furry friend.
Swan Valley Vegetarian Cafe - Millendon
We have found that many restaurants and cafes in the Swan Valley are very accommodating when it comes to dogs. The Swan Valley Vegetarian Cafe was undoubtedly one of the healthier options within the area where dogs are welcomed with a large vineyard to venture in. The menu mainly consists of vegan, raw and vegetarian selections with freshly picked flowers forming part of the salads and organic wines and gluten free beers to accompany the meals.
The Little Shop of Plenty - Maylands
The little shop of plenty prides itself on helping others achieve better health by simply providing healthy alternatives. They know plant based diets aren’t about starving yourself on bowls of lettuce but instead, with satisfying dishes that contain plenty of protein, iron, calcium and of course lots of amazing flavours. Not only are there plenty of food choices but there are also plenty of pets keeping the owners and staff entertained. So don’t be afraid to take your little cherub down for some pats and a sneaky parfait under the table.
Yelo - Trigg

Located along the coast, the combination of salt air and your bestie beside you makes for the perfect little outing. With food prepared fresh daily, these guys have got menu items you won’t want to miss, from purees and organic fruit toast to fresh wraps and raw cakes. And for those of you who are gluten challenged, they’ve got tuna or vegetable patties with pesto and salad, fresh Mediterranean frittatas and heaps more.

A gourmet retreat hidden at the quiet end of Lake Street in Northbridge, it has a warm charm and eclectic style that buzzes with local flavour. With all day breakfast, gluten-free, vegetarian options and cute little knick knacks for sale, this is certainly a pit stop you'll want to make with your little fella.
Casa Bianchi - Mt Hawthorn
Diners have described this setting as a real retreat with a pleasant ambience, good customer service and a well valued menu. In the centre of the cafe there is a large water feature and pond with lots of Koi fish, so if you think your pet goldfish is missing out on some quality time with you, then bring him along in a glass to watch the other fishies. But in all seriousness, this garden boutique not only has a picturesque setting with seating and tables scattered throughout the garden but it also has a menu filled with fresh juices and healthy options to fill you up after a nice jog or walk with the dog.
