Dog with Two Tails’ top priority is quality. Their kitchen makes all the food from scratch, with three full menus for breakfast, brunch and dinner, and they have become famous for their home-roasted coffee, seafood chowder and delicious pinwheels. Dishes can be adapted to most dietary preferences on request and all eggs, meat and veggies are free range.
These crafty folk made all of the tables from recycled furniture, and filled their café with things they like and “other people seem to like it too”. The space is regularly used for art, music and poetry, and a big chalkboard on the wall details the events coming up for the week.
It took two hundred hours of labour to build the miniature train track that winds its way around the ceiling of the Dog with Two Tails, and this train set with 50 meters of track is one of the tiny details that makes the experience at this bar-café-restaurant so stimulating and interesting. Keep your eyes peeled for other small details like the tiny toy people who are stuck in strange places around the café – we were told that they come alive at night to ride the train.
