Norwich’s Best Dog Friendly Cafes

Norwich as a city is a wonderful mix of the traditional and historic, and the bohemian and modern. Its cafe scene doesn’t stray far from that philosophy. There’s something for everyone here, from classic fried Full English breakfasts served up in Georgian manor houses, to vegan grub and expert small batch coffee roasters. Of course, for Bring The Pooch, the priority is always whether we can bring our dogs along. So, without further ado, here’s our favourite dog friendly cafes in Norwich. Happy caffeinating, dog pals!

Cafe Britannia

Driven by a greater sense of purpose and by community values, Cafe Britannia serves as a rehabilitation centre for ex-convicts and prisoners who are looking to get back on their feet. Its ethos and desire to help the less fortunate in society is what made us fall in love with the place, but the food and coffee doesn’t hurt either! To top it off, it sits in the Britannia Barracks which have truly amazing views and picturesque scenery surrounding it. Perfect for a post-dog walk pitstop.

An amazing little non-profit cafe, where as much of its money as possible is channeled into the St Thomas Norwich Trust. The Trust helps individuals and groups effected by debt, poverty, crime, addiction and more through a social action and outreach programme, meaning every coffee you drink here goes far beyond just giving you a nice warm beverage. It doesn’t hurt that the coffee is fantastic, and the service we received here was among some of the loveliest in Norwich.

Cherry Leaf Coffee House

A really lovely and welcoming space on St Giles Street. You can grab a stellar breakfast here (the bacon rolls are a favourite among locals), but plenty of cakes and buns for those with a sweet tooth. Its central location makes it ideal for exploring the city of Norwich with your dog. The prices are fantastic here too, meaning you can pop along for a midday cake after your bacon sarnie breakfast… and maybe another cheeky slice at tea time too!
