5 Dog and Cat Cafes in Metro Manila For The Pet Lover In You
Updated November 27, 2018
There are thousands of cafes in Metro Manila, each with its own theme as well as coffees and specialty dishes. Not all, however, provide companions whenever you want to sit down and take a sip. Wouldn’t it better if you could spend time with your best friend, or rather, man’s best friend?
Dog and cat cafes are by far the best way to de-stress after a long day of work or study, at least in our book. It serves as a form therapy through the sense of touch as you caress the dogs and cats and play with them during your stay.
If you want to give this a try (and are not allergic to fur), we’ve listed down some dog and cat Cafes to go to during the weekends or even weekdays:
Wagging Tails Dog Cafe
Located in Maginhawa, Quezon City, Wagging Tails will be your new favorite hang-out spot whenever you’re around the area. Almost all of their dogs are puppies, which means each is a bundle energy AND in need of cuddles. You can even play with Jose the Pig while waiting inside their coffee shop! For Php 250, enjoy unlimited drinks (choice of milk tea or fruit tea) and two hours of play time with the dogs.
Address: 120 Maginhawa Street, Teachers Village, Quezon City

A one-and-a-half-hour stay at their dog playground is only Php 190 which already includes a free drink.
