Inspired by the café life prevalent in Cape Town and New York, The Daily Coffee Café is renowned for its five-senses coffee and freshly baked goods. The garden setting of the branch in Menlo Park is ideal for diners who want to bring their four-footed friends along. Outside areas are dog-friendly, with free water and treats available.


There is always a long queue at Tashas, which can only be a good sign! Diners can enjoy feel-good food and a sophisticated yet homey environment, while their well-behaved pets sit underneath the table in the outside seating area. Mint-flavored water bowls are available upon request.

La Madeleine

Savor the classic taste of French and Belgian cuisine at La Madeleine, where delicious culinary authenticity is prized above all else. This bistro is situated on a large property where children and dogs can play to their heart’s delight. Dogs are also given a complimentary bowl of water.
