You can’t go wrong with a little bit of salt, and Sydney has plenty of cafes with it, thanks to the many varieties of salty dogs.
Here are five Sydney cafes with a range of dog-friendly options.
A favourite among Sydney’s young generation, the salty dog is popular in cafes across the city and the city centre.
The Sydney Salty Dog cafe The sassy cafe in Pyrmont, which boasts its own food and drinks menu, has been making the rounds in the city for some time.
In a nod to the Sausage Bar and Grill’s famous dog, the cafe’s name translates to “dog and bacon”.
The café’s owner, Michael Gourley, has taken a cue from the sausage bar to bring his salty dog to the city.
“I think we should call it The Sausages Cafe,” he said.
There are a couple of things that make The Sails Cafe unique: The sausages are cooked onsite and the restaurant has its own menu.
You can also buy a sausaged bacon sandwich for $2.99.
It’s an excellent way to kick off a meal in a relaxed atmosphere.
If you’re looking for a place to take the kids, the children’s menu features a variety of dishes such as the sashimi-based Baked Tuna Salad with Shrimp and Baked Potato, with a choice of potato chips.
A local favourite is the dog, which can be purchased for $3.99 with a $1.99 charge for kids aged six and under.
For those who prefer a more traditional menu, there’s a selection of vegetarian dishes on offer, such as Noodle Soup and Chicken Soup, which are both served with a variety tarts and sauces.
At the bottom of the menu is a selection that includes grilled chicken and beef, with options including roasted chicken, pork chops and beef brisket.
Whether you’re just getting into dining at The Sorts or looking for something a bit more unique, there are plenty of other options in the area.
Makeshift tables are available for those looking for more casual dining, with the owner noting that he’s “always been a fan of the traditional, rustic atmosphere”.
“There are so many different ways to enjoy Sydney and the great things about Sydney are the diversity of food, the great shopping and the fantastic cafes and bars.
Sydney Sausations Café In Pyrmont’s old industrial area, there is a cafe named The Sales Cafe, which has been serving up sausaging in a friendly, family atmosphere for over 100 years.
This one has been running since the 1960s, but was sold out of the café for the last few months.
Owner of the cafe, Jack Smith, says it’s “not a business that’s been in the shop for over 40 years”.
Smith said the old store is “pretty good” and is “always full” when he visits.
He said he thinks people have been coming here to eat for centuries.
With a selection from around 20 different kinds of dogs on offer (including one that’s a combination of a Labrador and a Pomeranian), you won’t find any meat on offer.
Smith also said it’s a good place to pick up a drink, with an “all-you-can-eat” bar and large seating.
Says Smith, “We’re a very family-friendly place and it’s not a place that people come to just to pick stuff up.
It’s a place where you can have a beer and a meal and come back.
