Our Story

Launched in October 2017, Wally's Dog Cafe's founder and business owner Katie McKee is a young Central Victorian dog lover with a passion to provide a dedicated cafe experience for pooches while also being "human friendly".

Wally’s Dog Café is a mobile coffee van with a doggy twist. Offering all the human coffee essentials the van also specifically caters to the K9 customer. Wally’s has both a human and dog specific menu with the dog menu featuring a range of yummy specially designed foods for your pooch. Some of the most popular doggy items include pupcakes; cupcakes for dogs. A pupcake is a locally and preservative free sourced meat based cake decorated with a lactose free icing decoration. Another pooch favourite are the doggy donuts; a peanut butter donut shaped biscuit coated in yoghurt and carob. To see our full product range, click here.

The idea for Wally’s Dog Café started from Katie’s desire to combine her love for dogs, strong work ethic and ten years of retail management experience. Growing up in a small business Katie had a good support crew behind her and was able to make her vision a reality with lots of planning and research.

 "I am so lucky to be able to make my dream a reality. Wally's Dog Cafe is my passion and I'm excited to see where this business can go!"
- Katie McKee, Founder and Owner of Wally's Dog Cafe
