Dog cafes

Barkney Wick, Hackney Wick

I definitely recommend paying a visit to Barkney Wick.

I was a bit wary in advance because I thought it might be too ‘East London hipster’ aesthetic.

But afterwards I felt the café would be a perfect place for a special little coffee date.

It’s a really a nice space, and smells beautiful from all the scented candles and soaps on sale.

The café is entirely plant-based and the fresh pastries and savouries such as vegan sausage rolls on offer are excellent quality.

For coffee I have Skimmed milk myself so for me here it’s just a black coffee or a herbal tea.

There are plant-based dog treats (which you could eat yourself), dog toys, Barkney Wick merchandise, and Wunderdog magazine in stock.

This dog grabbed a squeaky toy from the shelves and ran round causing some mayhem. ‘We will be buying that don’t worry!’ joked the owners. They also bought some treats. What a lucky dog!

There are artworks for sale.

The centre offers core dog services such as training and daycare.

On Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings the place opens up as cocktail bar After Bark which serves an exquisite menu of ‘puptails’ such as Bloodhound Mary and Barkarita.
