Arguably one of Wellington's most Insta-worthy spots, August Eatery is bursting with food and coffee of the highest quality. Your pooch is able to join you at your table with a water bowl provided while you tuck into one of their signature dishes like the Tsoureki French Toast - Greek brioche with orange curd, braised quince and labneh - or our personal fave, the Istanbul Eggs - poached eggs, Greek yoghurt, Aleppo pepper butter and dill on sourdough. Their cheese scones and fluffy donuts are both a must have lighter option or for those on the go.
Celebrating their first birthday, the coffee at August is 🔥 and their baristas are excellent at their craft, and with a range of alternative milks every cup of coffee is made with love and experienced hands.
Head into August for a "tour of flavours", with sweet, savoury and spicy on the menu, there is something for everyone! Be sure to use #pupsofaugusteatery and post any snaps you get of your pooch while dining.

The perfect spot to catch up with friends, or to sit in a quiet corner to work or study, August is definitely one of our faves and sits high on the ever-growing list of quality Wellington dog-friendly cafes. With cosy indoor seating and a sun trap out front for those summer days, it's the best spot to head along with your pooch for a delicious feed and an aesthetic af Insta post and be sure to use the hashtag #pupsofaugusteatery.
P.S Please be a responsible dog parent! If your dog has never been in a loud and busy environment before, take it easy with them. Get them used to it slowly and don’t expect them to be perfect the first time around. It takes time and patience to have a chill cafe dog, but it’s worth the perseverance!
