I had gotten iced catte (latte), which was refreshing and decent and was seated on the ground floor. The some cats were sleeping but the ones that were awake were calm and playful. I definitely would love to visit again.

Food was gross and cheaply made. Cats don’t want to be there and are all asleep and not friendly. We were sat upstairs which looks crap as well, downstairs is way nicer. Such a shame as we were excited. Lovely staff but they surely know...More

Go directly to their website and book from there. There is a tab that labelled bookings. You have to book. Usually a week in advance. No walk ins
