To all the dog lovers in Cebu, the long wait is over! Lovey Doggy dog cafe is now open at GQS Plaza, Banilad, Cebu city. The cafe was totally a stress reliever. It was a spacious 2-story cafe with super chill ambiance. The cafe is really easy to spot. GQS Plaza is right across Gaisano Country mall. Right beside University of Cebu, Banilad Campus.
As for the cafe’s rule, You need to buy a ticket to enter their playpen where the dogs are placed. Tickets are sold for 100.00 php/person. You can only avail for a ticket as long as you made a minimum purchase of 100.00php from their menu. It’s a bit pricey given that you’ll need to spend at least 200.00 php to totally enjoy the place, although it’s totally worth it after playing with the adorable cutie patooties! We were a bit early for our turn so we decided to chill on their second floor. They’re not like our normal cafes where chairs were synchronized from shapes to colors. Theirs come in different shapes and sizes. The place was spacious but seats are limited.
You may be asking how customers take turn on entering the playpen. There’s a maximum of 15 people per session. They are imposing a fix one hour session interval so if you decided to enter 30 minutes before one hour, you’ll be missing your 30 minutes. You will be also signing a waiver before entering the play pen.When it comes to hygiene, the place was totally spotless even with 12 dogs playing around. They have hand sanitizers all over the place for their customers. They also have their staff who diligently follow up on their dogs if ever the place needs cleaning.
Always make sure to follow the reminders to take care of the pets. Never use flash photography. The puppies were not toys so let’s handle them gently. It’s the establishment’s rule as well to not carry the dog while walking inside the playpen. Play with them and learn to share with the other customers.
