Nestled in a beautiful corner spot in the upscale shopping and dining mecca, LaCenterra at Cinco Ranch, is a unique find for dog lovers, PUCCI Cafe. Unique and cozy are the first words I thought when I entered the beautiful boutique and cafe. There’s simply nothing like it in Houston! Inside, patrons can order a delicious coffee and pastry or enjoy a refreshing prosecco or glass of wine all while perusing the luxury products for pooches. From Italian leather collars to plush blankets, PUCCI offers an array of accessories, apparel, toys, spa products and more that would make any dog’s tail wag. And although the store is filled with beautiful wares, the ultimate favorite for any pup is the bakery. Filled with healthy, all-natural delights in all sorts of shapes and colors (and for all occasions including birthdays), the gourmet treats alone are worth a visit. Once you’ve shopped and selected your favorite beverage and snack, you can enjoy your tasty sips and bites indoors while admiring the award-winning “living wall” or you can retire outside to the comfortable couches under the trees while allowing the lake view to ease your stress. 

As the season of shopping begins, we wanted to introduce our readers to this unique destination, where you can shop online or in person. You are sure to find some beautiful gifts any dog in your life while enjoying the cafe experience.
