Love My Human Townhouse, Chelsea

Love My Human on the King’s Road is a pet boutique and luxury groomer, and in addition in 2021 they opened a few doors down the Love My Human Townhouse, a dog café with dog crèche and wellness rooms upstairs.

I was worried the atmosphere might be a bit aloof here in such an exclusive area, but there was no need. The staff were really welcoming and there was a laidback atmosphere amongst the other customers.

It definitely has an elegant Chelsea style though.

Look at my Skinny Cappuccino in this cup and saucer!

The food for humans looked really nice and I would happily meet here for a brunch date.

One of the other standout features of this place is their affection for dog ornaments, given my interest in this area!

The boutique is a shopping mecca full of gorgeous gifts for dogs and dog-lovers!

Doggie First Dates at Romeo & Juliet’s

You will remember from previous posts two of my favourites The Four Legged Foodies and Romeo and Juliet’s café.

This was a collaboration for Valentine’s Day along with Wyld Cub and Hug called Doggie First Dates – ‘a chance for your dog to bring or meet the love of their life over a romantic lunch at this beautiful café’.

Here is Sam the chihuahua looking very cosy in front of a latte!

Romeo & Juliet’s Café for Dog Lovers, Hampstead Garden Suburb

This place opened in October this year.

I absolutely adored my visit there. I will definitely be going back soon and hope you visit too as they deserve success!

As soon as I walked in it had a really nice warm baked smell, the staff were very welcoming to me, the other customers looked happy and there were some dogs barking and causing gentle chaos.

I don’t often find cafés where I genuinely like the coffee and food but here the quality was impeccable.

You might not expect this particularly of a dog café which might rely on a kind of novelty value.

They had Skimmed Milk so here is my Skinny Cappuccino. Look how perfect it is!

Next time, I am definitely going to get something to eat as the food looked great too.

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.

Dandie Dog Cafe, Hampstead (Now closed)

I heard about this last year and it was on my list of top places to visit when things hopefully got back to normal.

I went on a weekday morning and when I arrived found the staff very welcoming and saw an array of cakes for humans, with a sizeable café space inside and some customers already sitting in with dogs, so I decided to stay in and have a coffee.

The place comes into its own with its offering for dogs. There is a fridge of freshly-baked cakes, a whole menu of hot dishes, plus lots of luxury pick ‘n’ mix treats.

And there are some items such as sequin bomber jackets on sale. For the discerning Hampstead dog!

They have a dog wash downstairs, hold a range of events such as yoga and dog behaviourists, and have a Yappy Hour for the socialisation of puppies.

Please pop in and support them as it is great to have dedicated dog venues like this!
