Single O was born in 2003 in Surry Hills in Sydney and opened its first roastery and a café in Tokyo in 2014. Dogs and pets can’t have caffeine, but we can still enjoy the nice summer weather in the terrace seats while sipping some good Australian roasts.

Bondi Coffee Sandwiches
Bondi Coffee Sandwiches is a coffee and café shop that makes up part of Bondi Coffee, which has shops in Hiroo and Yoyogi Park.
Tomigaya, where this café is located, is an area that has become increasingly popular in recent years as part of “ura Shibuya,” meaning “hidden Shibuya.” The exotic exterior of the cafe is reminiscent of the cafes along Bondi Beach in Australia, especially with the warmth of natural wood and the use of blue and green.
Since dogs are allowed on the terrace, many customers stop by on their way home from a walk around the area.
Location: 2-22-8 Tomigaya, Shibuya City, Tokyo
Opening hours: 7 AM – 7 PM
Anea Cafe is probably one of the most popular pet-friendly cafes and is highly recommended by dog owners. Despite the fact that most of the clients come here to be able to have a meal with their dogs, the cafe is also appreciated for its modern interior and delicious meals. Open until late, Anea Cafe has five different locations in some of the lesser-known areas of the city: Sangubashi, Shirokanedai, Nakano Shinbashi, Matsumizaki, and Hatchobori.
Location: 5-3-8 Honcho, Nakano City, Tokyo
Opening hours: 11:30 AM – 12 AM
Rad Bros Cafe

Rad Bros Cafe in Koenji is particularly loved around the punky Suginami ward neighborhood for their decadent and creamy basque burnt cheesecake. The shop itself is quite small and very minimalistic, with immaculate simple white furniture. But, despite the very neat and surgical appearance, Rad Bros Cafe is super pet friendly, and dogs can be brought inside while waiting or enjoying a cup of coffee.
Location: 1-4-2 Koenjikita, Suginami City, Tokyo
Opening hours: 8:30 AM – 6 PM
Attic Room Ginza Amenite
Attic Room Ginza Amenite is a cafe with a nostalgic vibe in Ginza where not only can you share the table with your dog but also enjoy delicious, high-quality French cuisine.
This cafe is so dog-friendly that they also have specially prepared dishes for dogs on the menu and dog-shaped cookies as souvenirs!
Location: 1-9-12 西山興業東銀座ビル 5F, Ginza, Chuo City, Tokyo
Opening hours: 11:30 AM – 10:30 PM
