The Garden Slug: our favourite dog-friendly café in the East.

Fancy a home-cooked brunch on a breezy weekend morning?

Disclaimer: We love the Garden Slug café. So this review is going to be as biased as an Auntie talking about her grandkids.

As you can tell on the SG Wellbeing page, I'm a big fan of dog-friendly spots and pet cafes in Singapore. They aren't just good for food, but they are great for your mental well-being too.

They help to foster a friendly community and connection with new people. You get to meet pretty darn cute dogs too. They are also fantastic spots to laze about on a weekend and simply enjoy the present moment in life.

As you're about to see, the Garden Slug café does this on so many levels.

It's a small, cozy little spot situated in Telok Kurau.

Planted right next to a plant shop (forgive my pun-ny writing), there's an allure to this place with all its hanging pots of green leaves and ferns.

It really makes you feel like you're having brunch or lunch in somebody's well-loved garden. That's actually somewhat true, as it was opened up by a Singaporean family in 2006 who wanted to create a cozy, relaxed space for people.

As they say on their website - "It's always relaxed and casual here, no pretensions."
