Where dogs can safely have a romp off-leash within a cafe

White picket fence - so pretty!


I love how this cafe is called 'Our Place', because the owners make sure people and dogs are equally welcomed here! Located in the Redlands' Victoria Point, a bayside suburb, Our Place Coffee Garden is more of a community hub for locals rather than a full-blown cafe, which only adds to the unique factor of the place.

Open 7 days a week.


The cafe itself, a quaint little cottage that is white in colour, is interlinked with other business which share the same space. I was a bit confused when I first arrived, because I could not figure out where Our Place Coffee Garden started and where it ended! However, I think that having multiple businesses so close together can only be a good thing, because there are so many extra potential customers who will be visiting their premises.

An example of a shared space - coffee signs with honey, aromtic oils, and other bric and brac for sale, in addition to examples of pottery work.


Our Place Coffee Garden describe themselves as a "takeaway coffee garden" - they have the standard coffees available, made by locally handcrafted, award winning A.M Coffee Roasters. They also have a range of teas available.

Coffee (and other drinks) menu.


In addition to yummy treats, Our Place also offers a self-service bar including toasters, a sandwich press, and a microwave, for just a gold coin donation - there are different types of bread available, in addition to a range of spreads. Our Place does not make a profit from this self-proclaimed "quirky" system, but but believes everyone should be able to have an affordable experience.

Little area where you order, as well as check out what food items they have available.

Crustless bread with butter and strawberry jam - and yes, the crusts were given to lucky Eddy!


Our Place also has a menu just for the lucky pups that visit, including a wide range of treats from Pets at Home Care Bakery, a small run-from-home business just a 4 minute drive away. They make amazing homemade treats, and I fully recommend them for your pups - as a bonus, they are made with no salt, no sugar, and no preservatives! Our Place also has puppaccinos, which Eddy loves - not as many cafes has this as you think, so we always jump at the chance of ordering one whenever we can.

We were told that they usually have a much wider range of treats to choose from, but that they were waiting for an order to come in.

Eddy's literal platter puts our drinks to shame.

Even though Our Places describe themselves as a takeaway coffee garden, they will bring your order to you, wherever you decide to sit - it's no different from any other cafe. We of course chose to sit in the "off the leash coffee garden" - here, dogs are allowed to roam free within the safety parameters in the form of a fully enclosed area with secure fenced gates. I've been to more than my fair share of dog friendly cafes, but this is one concept I'd never encountered before. Eddy had an absolute blast, despite it being an early morning weekday and he was the lone dog. There are plenty of shaded areas for their owners to sit, chat, and enjoy their meal, while the dogs had a romp in the garden.

Some rules to abide by.

There are also plenty of other seating options outside of the off leash dog garden.







Our Place conveniently has everything that doggy owners need, including:

Water bowls (and a warm welcome)!

Multiple water bowls with running water - how fancy!


The area out the back is designated for dogs (and perhaps dog lovers who want cuddles) in the off leash garden, but the front is a paradise for parents with young bubs - Our Place has many toys available for children to play with, including multiple pedal cars! They will surely keep the kids busy while you sit back and relax as a nice change.

Look at that selection! Please note that the pedal cars are not pictured, because they were all being used at the time.


It's also worth noting that on Wednesday mornings, Our Place hosts pottery classes in the garden. Bookings through WindMill Pottery 0412 744 715 are essential. On Saturday mornings, local artists perform live for patrons of Our Place. Thanks so much for having us, Our Place Coffee Garden - your staff was nothing but friendly, as were the other patrons, and your ideas are so innovative. It's friendly community-based businesses like yours that make the best memories.

Puppacinos, seriously. No wonder Eddy is smiling. This place looks more than just pet friendly; any pooch which visits there is likely to be pampered.

Eddy really enjoyed his puppaccino. If it contains caffeine, he will addict to it. Funny
