A retired business owner, my passions are cooking, photography and eating. I use all three of these when I write for recipeyum.com.au which is on HubGarden

Don't leave your dog at home
Ever wanted to take your fur baby along with you to have lunch?
If you answered yes to this, or if it is something that you would like to do with your dog, Furbaby Cafe is the place to be seen!

It is not just a cafe but also a "Barkery" for dogs with delightful treats from $1 - $4 for your pooch.
Variety of dog treats
And yes, they are gluten and dairy free as well!
There are also treats for humans, though on this occasion I chose to have just coffee in a cup. This was served by the lovely Angie, who was friendly, helpful, and held my blind dog while I took photos and looked at the amazing things for animals.

There is also a range of lunch rolls, cakes, and they do breakfasts as well.
Food for mums and dads
Their motto is "We don't think of dogs and cats as pets. We believe your FurBaby is family" As such, they have a huge variety of anything pertaining to dogs, and fun items not available in many mainstream shops!
Also for the pampered pooch, they have a beauty salon where they will wash, blow dry, and cut hair. They use organic shampoos and conditioners (of course!) and the with state of the art equipment, this is an experience not to be missed by "Rover".
You can observe your dog being groomed through large glass windows
There is a fully enclosed alfresco eating area, with plenty of room, though dogs must be kept on a leash at all times.
Outside eating and socialising area
Dash ordered a heart shaped cookie, and this was served in a grey bowl.
All food products home made
They also have VID parties (very important dogs) where you can invite your friends both of the two legged and four legged variety, on their birthday, and this is an exclusive area.
This is an exciting place, and something different to going out for lunch with your 4 legged friends - read more here and check it out at 346 Wanneroo Road, Westminster - plenty of parking right outside is a bonus.

All in all, I had a very pleasant hour or so, relaxing with my family in a very congenial atmosphere.
This is definitely MY kind of place!!! In Townsville ,Nth Qld, we also have Pet Cafes and they are always popular as the dog population in the region is large and much-loved!!
Finy,your article is simply wonderful,Dash is adorable and the photographs made me want to come along with my own beloved Fur Babies(and YES!!! I have ALWAYS referred to my pets as my FUR BABIES!!),to enjoy such a delightful experience. But I must regretfully admit that it is a bit far for me to travel.....
I love that you refer to your own fur babies as your 'family', because this is exactly what mine are to me,as well,.Thank You so much for such a treasure of a story which truly touched my heart!!
