2. Higher Ground
Higher Ground has taken over the previously well-known Georgetown Wines establishment in the heart of George Town. Here’s a fun fact: this location was once a horse stable that dates back a century before it was converted into an F&B outlet. Today, it oozes a casual, rustic, and industrial-modern aesthetic.
It also has the perfect spot with exposed brick walls for that OOTD with your furbaby. In addition to being a cafe during the day, Higher Ground transforms into a bar at night to host live music performances. This large cafe offers both indoor and outdoor seating, where you can savour unpretentious desserts and hand-brewed coffee.

3. Cafe De Ohana
Located along Jalan Tun Dr Awang, this unique two-storey cafe welcomes diners on the first floor, and on the second, the space is reserved for pet owners and their furry friends, and special gatherings.
A modest list of main dishes on the menu includes delicious Asian selections. Budget-conscious diners will be relieved to learn that the main courses at Cafe De Ohana are reasonably priced and are served in generous portions.
The cafe has two dogs, a Pomeranian and a Sheltie, who live there. But they do take breaks and have time off. So, if you’d like to meet these two VIPs (very important pets!), ensure you check out the cafe’s social media channels for working hours.
