Located in Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park, Canopy Garden Dining is surrounded by lush greenery, immersing diners in a peaceful environment while offering an array of classic cafe fare such as soups, pastas, and burgers, as well as thirst-quenching smoothies. A hot favourite with pet owners since it opened some nine years ago, Canopy underwent extensive renovations and reopened in April last year with a new look and style. The 67-seater (not including the al fresco area) joint has full glass panels that allow any abundance of natural light to seep into the eatery. The al fresco dining area—where Fido is welcome—can hold up to 46 patrons.
The al fresco area is spacious and several large pooches were observed lying comfortably beside their owners as they dined there. Dog bowls or any other toys are not provided, and signs are displayed reminding diners of that. Fido is also not allowed on the chairs or any other piece of furniture unless he is lying on a piece of cloth that should be brought along by the owner.
Canopy is a mere two-minute walk away from Carpark A of Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park, which has an abundance of parking space. However, the carpark is packed on weekends, making it much harder to find a parking lot.
