BELLANGER IS BACK
Bellanger is back with a bark! This dog-friendly Michelin star restaurant is must-visit for you and your best pal.
Traditional French restaurant situated on Islington Green, inspired by the original Alsatian brasseries of Paris. Serves coffee, cake, à la carte dinner and dog treats.
If you want a fancy menu that has reasonable prices then Bellanger is a must-visit. The ambience is relaxed whilst feeling fancy in the glossy, grand cafe-style surroundings. The staff are attentive and most importantly pooch-friendly.
Treat your dining experience as if you were in Paris itself, put on your best frock and make sure your doggo has their most snazzy collar on.
I would book your table sooner rather than later, as Bellanger has only returned as a pop-up until Christmas - We hope it stays open. Paws crossed.
Breakfast at Bellanger is the new Breakfast at Tiffany's... Here is Chelsea Pug dressed in her finest pears, basking in the fabulous atmosphere.
“I love getting dressed up and being spoiled by my dad. And our favourite restaurant to go to is the Bellabger in Angel. Bellanger is the complete doggo dining experience. The staff are welcoming and the air is filled with exquisite food smells. The doggy biscuit is to die for. Highly recommended by this glam pug” - Chelsea Pug review.

This coffee bar is relaxed and welcoming and a champion of art with vibrant wall space showcasing lots of exciting contemporary work.
But most importantly Pistachio & Pickle are pooch-friendly. Dogs are warmly welcomed with water and attentive to your coffee needs.
Owner Steve is a dog owner himself; His loyal companion, a very handsome, Vizsla called Cooper is an energetic and affectionate presence in the cafe and is always happy to see other local doggos come in and say hi.
Pistachio & Pickle is a must for its relaxed community atmosphere. It’s a big part of the Islington dog walking circle, and you can normally find other dog owners grabbing a coffee before heading to the park.

“Pistachio & Pickle is a cool place to hang out with other dogs. I’m always welcomed with hugs from the staff, they always offer water if I need some after a big walk. Totally recommend a visit if you’re in the area” - Nell dog review
SUNDAY BEST BRUNCH IN TOWN

Who let the dogs out
The ambience is small and cosy and packed with character. This popular spot normal has ques down the street waiting to try some famous french toast and the eggs. The menu is well thought out with eclectic versions of classic dishes.

All three establishments are re-open for business and are practising safety measures. If you can show your support for these local businesses during this strange time then pop in with your dog for a coffee or even a bite to eat.
