Sydney's balmy climate is a blessing for dog owners. Compared to Australia's colder cities, we have a stack more outdoor spaces, many of them suitable for your four-legged mate.

At these cafes, you don't have to choose between your breakfast and your best friend – you can have both. Bonus points for cafes with puppycinos on the menu.
