South Australia’s most pet-loving destination

It’s always a little hard to know how your furry friend will act around all that food. But, what better place to try it than our state’s most dog friendly region: the Adelaide Hills.

Dog-friendly cafes in the Adelaide Hills

Harvest Mylor Café: This eatery is a must-try for the fresh food alone. But it’s so much better with your favourite little mate by your feet. Why not burn off the meal with a picturesque walk after, in gorgeous Mylor.

The Organic Market & Cafe: Do you have any brunch lovers in the family? Of course you do. Head over to the hybrid market and cafe in Stirling (and bring your pooch). In one of their Instagram photos, the owners say: “Yes, we’re VERY dog friendly! Please bring your furry friends for a visit (and let us pat them).”

Fancy dinner? Book at these dog-friendly restaurants

Hahn & Hamlin: Bring best friends of all kinds, to this Hahndorf main street restaurant. Enjoy the delicious locally-sourced menu, while pups is occupied with dog treats.

FRED Eatery: A café by day, but restaurant on Friday night, this contemporary eatery welcomes guests (and their dogs) in a generous setting. Calling Aldgate home, FRED is worth the detour to this oh-so-Hills town.

And for a night cap, these dog-friendly pubs

One of the best parts of the Adelaide Hills are the cosy pubs. The crackling fireplaces, the endless beer options and bar conversations, plus your dog, of course.

Stanley Bridge Tavern: Over in Verdun, this historical 1800’s pub opens its beer garden for dogs. It’s next to a gorgeous creek, making it the perfect year-round setting.

Gulf Brewery: While not exactly a pub, it’s another option to enjoy a cheeky, after-meal beverage. Hahndorf’s Gulf Brewery believe ‘beer is the new wine’, so go and see for yourself. Take your furry friend along with you for the adventure.

You’ll find many pubs that allow you to bring along your pooch. That’s the beauty of being in the laid-back, community-centric Adelaide Hills.
