Dog ownership has increased during lockdown, and Edinburgh cafes are catering to their guests’ new canine side-kicks with more than just a bowl of water.
From liver treats, to venison munchies and doggie cupcakes, these places welcome well-behaved hounds, and will always offer a scratch behind the ear. They’ve shared pictures of their favourite fuzzballs (and believe us, they had a lot of snaps to chose from).

5. Gus the dachshund at Modern Standard Coffee
Gus the long-haired dachshund is a real regular at Modern Standard Coffee. He would order a flat white and a cinnamon bun, if he was human.
6. Milo the Westie at Loudon's
Both of the Loudon's locations are dog friendly and they offer water, dog biscuits and, on very special occasions, some bacon bits. Some of their guests order sausages for their canine companions. Milo wants all of that and he'll give you his paw to prove it.

7. Texas the border collie at Union Brew Lab
Even though he appears to be having a "here's Johnny!" moment in this pic, Texas is their favourite canine visitor at Union Brew Lab. His owner Alison really likes the coffee here. He's not allowed it, though he's happy to drink the water that's offered.

8. Cindy at Tasty Buns
Cindy has been visiting Tasty Buns since she was a tiny puppy. That's because they're very dog friendly, with water, endless smooches, boops and dog biscuits.
