The Closest you'll get to a Dog Cafe in Brisbane


Woof! That's canine language for "I can't believe I didn't know about this place earlier", considering I live only 5 minutes away. In fact, it's right next to Macgregor Department of Transport and Main Roads, which is where I got my L's back in the day. I also drive past this area everyday going home from work... but better late than never, right?

Lucky Eddy got cuddles from the owner of the cafe!


As most of you may have already guessed, Woofissimo is a haven for dog lovers like me. The interior design and furnishings are canine themed, and they are very much dog friendly. Pictures and sculptures of a wide range of breeds can literally be seen anywhere you look, including many pugs!

I wonder how many pictures Woofissimo has in total?

More framed photos, featuring Eddy's new fans.


Woofissimo welcomes guests with cute statues of puppies saying "welcome", literally at their doorstep. Woofissimo staff then go one step further (no pun intended) and welcome your four legged best friend with a biscuit, and a bowl of water. Dogs are treated like royalty here - it's a cheaper alternative to doggy spas!

Eddy fits right in.

Yum! Thanks Woofissimo Cafe.


The menus were on cork boards - it's such a unique idea, I don't think I've seen another menu quite like it. Plus, it makes it easier for Woofissimo to update their menu when they want to add new items, it's a win-win situation for all.

More food items, including some Asian fusion choices and Woofissimo specialties. The second page is the drinks menu, with "Woofissimo Special Drinks


There is a small 'doggie menu' section on the menu, for your furry best friend to peruse. They get to choose from a doggie biscuit, a doggie muffin, or a doggyccino. If you or your dog is finding it hard to choose, perhaps you could opt for all three! The owner of Woofissimo was nice enough to shout Eddy a Doggyccino, which Eddy absolutely loved and pretty much inhaled it within seconds.

Thank you again, Woofissimo!


I opted for the Woofissimo Big Breakfast: 3 rashers bacon, 2 fried eggs, 1 sausage, grilled tomato, cucumber, mushrooms, baked beans, crispy hash brown, and toast. I'm allergic to egg yolk, and due to how busy cafes can get nowadays, not all cafes I've been to will accomodate to this dietary need. However, Woofissimo did take out the yolk before frying my eggs, for which I am very grateful for! My friend opted for Eggs Benedict with Salmon: 2 poached cage-free eggs on toasted ciabatta topped with rich hollandaise sauce.

It's worth mentioning that all breakfast selections can be combined with a flat white, cafe latte, or cappuccino for an additional charge of $3.00, or a glass of iced/special drink for an additional charge of $4.90. I opted for my usual soy cap, and was pleasantly surprised by how large it was!

Not sure if you can tell from the photo how tall the cup is, but trust me, it's heaps taller than your average cuppa.


There is also a wide variety of baked desserts and cakes available for purchase at the counter.
