The Hound @ OUG

It's definitely a dog-eat-dog world out there, but here inside OUG's latest cafe, the innocent bliss of puppy love prevails.

Cookie, a charming four-year-old beagle with an inquisitive love for humans, will welcome visitors to The Hound, a hangout that's hopelessly devoted to dogs, with canine portraits galore on the walls. It's a lovely space that feels deeply personal & deftly put together; we particularly like the colourful stained-glass window shutters that look out on the bustling neighbourhood.

"The name's Cookie - ask about me!" Feel free to bring your own poodles or pugs here too, as long as they're well-behaved.

The Hound's founder, Donna, has been a home baker for the past year (you'll know her if you've ordered from My Patisserie), so it's natural that her own-made cakes - from carrot to red velvet, passion fruit cheese to chocolate - form the foundation for the cafe's current soft launch. Warm meals should be available eventually; there's woof-worthy coffee right now, but we're looking forward to some upcoming liquor-laced caffeine beverages that The Hound's amiable team is still experimenting with.

  4. I'm glad to see so many pet friendly places popping up, the old DoH rules no longer being rigorously implemented I guess?

  6. I thought this was a "dog cafe" at first. :)

    I'll wait till they serve hot food, it seems like a promising enterprise though.

  10. Hi, I would like to know how their menu is like since they never mentioned about it on their facebook page. I've called them but all they've said is they just serve pasta and croissants. This looks like a great cafe and I love beagles :)
