“Quiet and well hidden”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2014

Visiting Vienna and being a bit of a crazy cat woman I had to visit this Café. We nearly walked past it as there was no sign outside. Inside it's like a cat playground. We only saw three of the resident kitties. One if them was fast asleep in a basket high up on the wall. It was quite relaxing. The cake we ordered was beautiful, the coffee a bit expensive. I quite liked the atmosphere but I thought it would be a great idea for the owner to also sell a few cat related souvenirs. I collect cat stuff and would certainly have bought something. We enjoyed the visit. I was sceptical about keeping cats in a Café in the middle of a busy city but I think those cats are certainly happier than in an animal shelter. They had a brilliant cat climbing tree, a cat super highway along the walls, plenty of hiding places and the customers respect the cats and their needs. They even had an open patio door with a mesh gate where they could lie or sit and watch the world go by. And they got plenty of cuddles if they wanted them. All in all a good environment and safe too. The café is in a quiet wee alley in Vienna's city centre and if you love cats, you should visit!

“A cat cafe in the middle of the city”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

Hard to explain this place, it's like a cafe, but with cats. In fact it's more of a cat habitat that sells coffee!

There were 5 cats in attendance, and they have free run of the cafe. Staff were friendly and the prices OK.

Really suited more to proper cat lovers than me (I'm a dog person!) but a friend of mine was like a child on Christmas morning!

Worth a visit just for the experience

“The Cat Cafe'”

A must and a lovely place for cat lovers within 5 minutes walk from the Stephansdom. Maybe a little hard to find but worth it

“Worth a visit for cat lovers!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

Lovely cat cafe. We only had drinks during the day but prices were good and staff were friendly and efficient. A really nice open space inside for the cats to wander around. Of course, any time you go to a cat cafe you have to be prepared for the cats mostly sleeping and people competing for their attention when they are awake, but that can't be helped!

“Accept the rhythm of the cats”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014

First of all, if someone loves cats, you should know and respect that cats are moving in mornings and afternoons. During the day, they are rather lazy. Now this place was founded by some Japanese ladies in Vienna and you can enjoy a great cup of coffee. It is not cheap, but if you like cats, this place is a great spot to come too. If you look for a place were the cats are waiting at the entrance and just want to be cuddled and carried around - than you don't know anything about cats. The Neko is not a typical Viennese Coffee Shop, but it is a nice experience specially if you like cats.
