It's a cat cafe. You go here for the kitties - it' all about the kitties: around 12 strays looking for a home.

We enjoyed visiting the Meow Parlour. The cats are adorable, though I recommend visiting as soon as possible when they open(11a.m. on weekends, noon during the week.) Reservations at that time a must! We visited at 1p and already some cats were tired of attention....More

Heard about this concept and enjoy that they take care of finding homes for rescues. Found the staff a little pretentious, and the cats scarce... not as many to pet or play with as expected.... many being cats and choosing to go high and hide...More

This place is just ok in that it cares for cats. It could be better if they were more informative/interactive with the customers. They could provide general information about the background and care of the felines and in general be friendlier. Overall a nice facility...More

Chinatown
Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and
smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like
entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle
that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families
