Little Black Pug Cafe Elevates Your Pet’s Day Out to an Exact Science

Little Black Pug Cafe

Husband-and-wife team Louise and Josh Daly left their careers as scientists to combine their shared passions for good food, coffee, and dogs, to open Little Black Pug Cafe in Mt Gravatt, a community-focused cafe whose name pays homage to their two pugs, Bowie and Mate.

Pet parents looking for a dog-friendly cafe will find that this unique cafe not only welcomes dogs with open arms, but also caters to them with their own special menu.

“Our backgrounds in science bring a different approach to our food and coffee. We love simple, tasty food, done with precision and care. We also care for the environment and aim to reduce, reuse and recycle as much as we can,” Louise shared.

The menu caters to different diets with many gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan friendly options. It focuses on fresh, seasonal ingredients and caters to a variety of tastes and diets. For dogs, treats include grain-free beef and veggie meatballs, Peking duck wings, and chicken necks.

There are two dog-friendly dining areas – the Garden, accessible from the Berge St entrance, and the Front, accessible from Logan Rd. Your dog can even enjoy his own warm “puppyccino” made with frothy lactose-free milk.

For their human companions, menu options range from classic breakfast fare like croissants and eggs on toast to gourmet lunch and dinner choices. Burgers like the ‘Nicolas Cajun’ with housemade Cajun charcoal grilled chicken, fresh tomato, lettuce, and spicy aioli put a creative spin on cafe’s grub.

‘Mr Benedict Wafflebatch’ is an inventive take on eggs benedict, with a housemade savoury cheese waffle base topped with popcorn chicken, poached eggs, and hollandaise.
