Newcastle now has its own dog café (yes, that is a thing), to rival its cat cafés (also a thing). Dog and Scone is now open next door to cat café Mog on the Tyne in Pudding Chare. For the uninitiated, the idea is that you enjoy canine cuddles with your coffee and cake and emerge all the better for it. You can’t take your own dog, but the café is home to two toy poodle,s a bichon frise, a toy Yorkshire terrier, a pug and a Welsh corg. Entry £5 per adult includes your first drink, children 6-12 free. What’s not to like?
