The Best Places to Take Your Cat in Singapore without Being Chased Away

My cat isn’t like other cats. She doesn’t like to sit still and climb onto things, but she loves the outdoors, good food, and belly rubs. 

The more I spend time with my cat, the more I realise she’s so much like me (which actually works in my favour, to be honest). When I have a free weekend or weekday afternoon, I make sure to take her around with me for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. 

Luckily, there are few places where I can take my cat in Singapore without being chased away by the staff members, and here’s a list of my best go-to’s! 

Sun Ray Cafe

Address: 79 Brighton Crescent (Google Maps)

Contact Details: +65 8909 8458

Operating Hours: Tuesday to Sunday, 9:00 am to 8:30 pm


Sun Ray Cafe is one of my go-to places to bring my cat along with me whenever I visit Serangoon. They’re a pet-friendly cafe that serves delicious speciality coffee made from beans they roasted in-house. 

Not many cafes roast their own coffee, and the fact that Sun Ray Cafe does this, paired with welcoming all pets, makes it one of my favourite places in the city. Lots of people bring their dogs to the cafe, but cats are also welcome. 

They’re free to roam around, so long as you keep a leash on them. I like ordering their Chilli Crab Shakshuka with a side of their famous bacon jam, then finishing off my go-to meal with a shot of espresso. 


Sun Ray Cafe also sells cakes for your furry ones if they get hungry. All their cakes are safe for pets and are made with real meat, vegetables, and fruits. 

In case your pet can’t eat a certain ingredient in their cakes, you can give Sun Ray Cafe a call to get a full list of what they put into their pet food. Check out their pet menu here


Address: 86 Robertson Quay, #01-03 Next to M Social Hotel (Google Maps)

Contact Details: +65 6951 4861

Operating Hours: Monday to Friday, 9:00 am to 10:00 pm, Saturday and Sunday, 8:30 am to 10:00 pm


Botany is a quaint restaurant and bar along Robertson Quay that I visit with friends on Friday nights. During the day, however, I bring my cat along with me whenever I want to enjoy a drink or two by the river. 

This pet-friendly spot in the Quays allows diners to dine with their pets in their alfresco area. I make sure to only bring my cat when the weather is fine and a bit chilly because the alfresco area can get a little hot. 

I’d order a glass of their Mandarin Blossom cocktail (a mix of orange puree, tequila, and lime) and their Feisty Chicken Burger. They don’t have pet-friendly food, but I make sure to bring some treats for my cat in case she gets hungry! 


There’s parking available behind the restaurant. Robertson Quay can be very crowded on weekend nights, so make sure you head there a little early (around 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm) to get a parking slot. 

The Garden Slug 

Address: 55 Lor L Telok Kurau, #01-57/59/61 (Google Maps)

Contact Details: +65 8895 9059

Operating Hours: Monday to Friday, 11:30 am to 10:00 pm, Saturday and Sunday, 9:30 am to 10:00 pm


Whenever I visit The Garden Slug with my cat, I’m always greeted with a friendly smile from the staff members. The people there, including the owners, are proud animal lovers, and I love the fact that my cat gets to sit with me inside the establishment. 

There’s also an al fresco area if pets want to roam around while you dine. I prefer to keep my cat next to me inside to keep her cool and away from the heat of the sun. 

Aside from the pet-friendly ambience and warm hospitality, the food here is also worth trying. Their Chicken Rice Bowl is my favourite and the portions are big enough to share (plus, it costs $12 a pop, which isn’t really bad!)


The Garden Slug has a pet-friendly menu, but it’s designed for dogs. I highly recommend bringing your cat some treats or a packed lunch in case none of the home-cooked pet meals are suitable for their diet. 

You can check out the menu here and see if there’s anything that might be suitable for your cat, though! 

Open Farm Community 

Address: 130E Minden Rd (Google Maps)

Contact Details: +65 6471 0306

Operating Hours: Monday to Friday, 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm, 6:00 pm to 11:00 pm, Saturday and Sunday, 11:00 am to 4:00 pm, 6:00 pm to 11:00 pm


The outdoor patio at Open Farm Community is a great place to hang out with your cat. I like to bring my cat here sometimes when the weather is chilly and when I crave their sourdough focaccia. 

It’s not the cheapest restaurant in town, but they do serve up an extensive menu with gluten-free, vegan-friendly, and vegetarian options. I love that the concept is healthy, and if you’re around on a weekend, I highly recommend trying their brunch menu. 

The outdoor area is mainly reserved for guests with pets, but it’s spacious and airy. My cat usually just sits next to me, but I sometimes bring her to the small garden area after I finish my meal and pay for the bill! 


Open Farm Community grows their own ingredients in their garden. They actually offer tours around the farm for $25 a person. Dates for tours may vary, but you can check out this page for more info and details. 


Address: 11 Rhu Cross, #01-02 (Google Maps)

Contact Details: +65 6268 5225

Operating Hours: Tuesday to Friday, 3:00 pm to 11:00 pm, Saturday, 8:00 am to 11:00 pm, Sunday, 10:00 am to 11:00 pm


Weekend brunches at Kontiki were a regular thing my family would do when I was still a student, but now, I enjoy coming back here by myself and with my cat. This quaint American restaurant is hidden in Tanjong Rhu and serves up hearty comfort food. 

My cat and I enjoy the views of Marina Bay from the restaurant. The place is tastefully decorated like a surf and turf shack by the beach, with surfboards on the ceiling and lots of quirky surfing and sailing decor all around. 

I would sometimes order a brunch platter, then stay a little while to take Instagram-worthy photos of my cat here. The vibes are pretty chill, and so are the staff members! 


If your cat is feeling parched, just ask the Kontiki staff members for a pet bowl filled with ice water.

They usually provide one for every guest bringing along a pet with them, though! Just ask for refills to keep your cat cool.

The Coastal Settlement

Address: 200 Netheravon Rd (Google Maps)

Contact Details: +65 6475 0200

Operating Hours: Monday to Friday, 10:30 am to 11:00 pm, Saturday, 8:30 am to 11:00 pm, Sunday, 8:30 am to 10:00 pm


The Coastal Settlement, formerly Block 20, was a Royal Air Force base during the British colonial era. The management pays homage to this history, making the restaurant’s decor alone worth a visit.

However, it’s not just the tasteful decor that I come here for. The restaurant’s pet-friendly policy lets me dine here with my cat, so long as we’re seated outdoors (I don’t really mind because we get great views of the sea, anyway).

A few of my go-to meals here are the smoked salmon and avocado salad, the crispy pork ribs, and the Spam fries. Portions are good for sharing, but I never leave without getting a serving of their Basque Burnt Cheesecake for dessert! 


Be prepared for mosquitoes and other insects when dining at The Coastal Settlement’s outdoor dining area. Bring some insect repellent lotion or spray and keep your cat inside his or her carrier if you have one! 

The Dempsey Project

Address: Block 9 Dempsey Rd, #01-12 (Google Maps)

Contact Details: +65 6475 2005

Operating Hours: Monday to Thursday, 8:00 am to 9:00 pm, Friday to Saturday, 8:00 am to 10:30 pm, Sunday, 8:00 pm to 9:00 pm


Another spot to take your cat in Singapore is The Dempsey Project, a restaurant that creates dishes fresh from suppliers and producers all over the world. If I want to splurge a bit for brunch with my cat, this is one place I go, especially on weekends. 

Their menu features continental staples like eggs, bacon, baked goods, and beans, as well as salads, pasta, and gluten-free options. They also have a vegan-friendly menu that features local cuisine like curries, laksa, and more. 

It’s not just the food I come here for, though. Their pet-friendly dining area is spacious and quiet and offers great views from Dempsey Hill. 


The Dempsey Project sells imported jams, cheeses, oils, chocolate, and wine. You can make your own charcuterie board from their store or ask them to create one for you at an extra charge. 

If you’re not familiar with making charcuterie boards, you can ask for assistance from the staff members, and they’ll take you through their Cheese Room for advice. 

The Cheese Room is where they keep all of their imported cheeses. You can test out over 100 variants of cheese, including seasonal ones, before you add them to your charcuterie board!

Well Collective

Address: Blk 418 Northshore Drive 02-11/12, 418 Northshore Dr, #2 Northshore Plaza (Google Maps)

Contact Details: +65 6979 6442

Operating Hours: Monday to Thursday, 12:00 pm to 10:00 pm, Friday to Sunday, 10:00 am to 10:00 pm


If my cat could speak, I’m sure she’d have many great things to say about Well Collective’s Paw Bento menu. This restaurant serves both human and pet dishes, so you and your furkids can enjoy a meal together. 

Mains include Balinese grilled chicken, curry, protein bowls, vegan-friendly breakfast platters, and specialty coffee. For my cat, she gets a salmon bowl with a side of roasted pumpkin, and sometimes, a babyccino (a pet-friendly and caffeine-free cappuccino). 

The restaurant’s outdoor patio is pet-friendly and quite spacious, so your furry ones can roam around friendly. There’s even a self-service pet bowl station where you can get a bowl and refill water for your furry one during your visit! 


The ordering system at Well Collective is done completely online. The staff inside can assist you if you get into any trouble accessing the menu, though! 

If you’re visiting with kids, there’s a play area where they can play with pets on their outdoor patio! It’s small, but it’ll keep them occupied while you enjoy your meal. 

Wildseed Cafe at The Summerhouse

Address: 3 Park Ln, Level 1A Seletar Aerospace Drive (Google Maps)

Contact Details: +65 8126 7524

Operating Hours: Monday to Thursday, 8:00 am to 4:30 pm, 5:00 pm to 11:00 pm, Friday to Saturday, 8:00 am to 4:30 pm, 5:00 pm to 12:00 am, Sunday, 8:00 am to 4:30 pm, 5:00 pm to 11:00 pm


The Wildseed Cafe at The Summerhouse is one of the prettiest pet-friendly cafes in Singapore, owing to its location in the Seletar Aerospace Park. The cafe is garden-themed and features both an indoor and outdoor dining area. 

I usually sit in the garden area whenever I come here with my cat because the views of nature really amplify the calming ambience inside the cafe. I always find other diners bring their furry ones here, especially the bigger ones (it’s so spacious!). 

My go-to here is the Breakfast Bliss set that includes a pastry and coffee of your choice. Sometimes, I drop by on weekday afternoons for their lunch specials which change constantly (but I highly recommend ordering their mushroom soup each time!). 


There’s limited parking at the Wildseed Cafe, so if you’re driving, I recommend parking your car at either Seletar Parking Zone C or The Oval Car Park Zone B. Both are just a short walk away from the Summerhouse. 

Sometimes, on weekends, the Wildseed Cafe hosts live music nights where they invite bands to play for diners inside The Summerhouse. There is no door charge to come by and watch, but you’ll need to at least order a meal! 

Zorba The Greek Taverna

Address: 3A River Valley Road, Clarke Quay, Block A ORA 1 (Google Maps)

Contact Details: +65 8218 5602

Operating Hours: Monday, 5:00 pm to 11:00 pm, Tuesday to Thursday, 11:00 am to 11:30 pm, Friday, 11:00 am to 11:30 pm, Saturday, 9:00 am to 11:30 pm, Sunday, 9:00 am to 11:00 pm


My cat and I don’t need to fly all the way to Greece just to get the feel of Santorini for lunch or dinner. We just go straight to Zorba The Greek Taverna for delicious Mediterranean food and vibes right next to Clarke Quay. 

This Greek restaurant has an outdoor seating area that faces the Singapore River, giving pretty riverside views during the day. My favourite time to visit is in the evening, though, because the city lights by the river set a romantic mood. 

The food here is fresh and tasty, and I recommend getting the moussaka, hummus, lamb kebab, grilled squid, and shakshuka (tomato sauce with feta and chilli). If you’re coming by in the morning, I recommend ordering a cup of their Greek coffee! 


Zorba The Greek Taverna hosts a pet jamming session where your furry ones can join in on a painting session along with other pets. Dates and times may vary, but you can check out this page to find out more

If you sign up to be a 1-Group Member, you can get exclusive perks like discounts, birthday treats, gift cards, and more. 

You can sign up to be a member by asking a staff member at Zorba or visit this page to learn more about the membership. 

The Urban Hideout 

Address: 60 Springside Walk, #01-05 The Brooks I (Google Maps)

Contact Details: +65 8879 9722

Operating Hours: Tuesday to Friday, 12:00 pm to 10:30 pm, Saturday, 10:30 am to 10:30 pm, Sunday, 10:30 am to 10:30 pm


The Urban Hideout is another one of my go-tos that offers nutritious pet food alongside regular mains and specials. While I enjoy the brunch options at The Urban Hideout, I highly recommend trying their all-day mains and dinner menu! 

Their bestsellers are the Swiss-herbed rosti, the Nyonya curry chicken, fried chicken and waffles, and the barbecue spare ribs. My cat likes to nibble a bit of what I order, but because not everything I eat is safe for her, I make sure to get her the Surf & Turf. 

The Surf & Turf is a dish curated by PAWFF SG, a pet food supplier, and contains oven-baked salmon, pumpkin puree, and vegetables, all prepared with coconut oil. For dessert, I get a scoop of chocolate gelato and my cat gets strawberry ice cream. 


There’s a time limit when dining in at The Urban Hideout. For mains, you get 90 minutes during peak hours (lunch and dinner) then 45 minutes for snacks and dessert. 

As the name suggests, finding your way to the Urban Hideout can be tricky, as it’s hidden within a building along Sembawang Road. 

Use Springside Park as a landmark, then walk towards Springside Walk. There’s parking available in the same building as the cafe!
