Writing, films, travel, family, friends, yoga, cafes, fun, books and music. That's what life is all about.

Since its opening in March 2000, it didn't take long for Cafe Bones to earn its solid reputation for being the perfect hangout for both owners and pooches in the inner west of Sydney. You can find the cafe nestled by Hawthorne Canal in the Leichhardt/Haberfield area.

It's a peaceful spot, apt for some off-leash doggie action. On the other side of the canal where leash restrictions are in place, are tennis courts, vast green areas and a substantial children's playground. Additionally, Hawthorne Canal Reserve Park itself also hosts dog training classes on a Sunday morning which are run by Leichhardt Dog Training Club, a non-for-profit organisation committed to dog training through positive reinforcement methods.

Hawthorne Canal

Offering a large range of quality food and drinks for both species, as well as children, Cafe Bones is a fine and quiet area for a cuppa after a good walk near the canal with your canine. Just be sure to keep an eye on your dog's interest in the canal as it is not fenced off.

Cafe Bones produces its own unique and well-known Pupaccino, which comprises of a frothy milk drink sprinkled with liver treats. It also has its own range of gourmet dog biscuits produced under their label of Cafe Bones. They also have a children's menu, including the child version of a cappuccino, the Babycino. Human-wise, they have a large range of warm drinks, smoothies, breakfast items and even sweets and smoothies. The doggie menu is extensive with various biscuits and liver and lamb treats.

It does get crowded on the weekend, so if you feel like you need a quieter space to have your drink, they do take-away so you can sit under a tree and watch your beloved dog scamper in the grass.

And unlike many other inner-city parks, it is welcomingly off-leash at all times. Utter canine bliss.
