Excellent themed café that lived up to its billing. The cats were delightful and the small number of visitors allowed in at any one time made for a special occasion. All that's needed to make it purrfect (sorry, couldn't resist) is a proper sign outside.

In one of the capital’s trendiest districts, London Cat Village serves afternoon tea surrounded by countless resident felines. For the ultimate homely touch, trade shoes for comfy slippers at the door, and settle in for weekly film screenings on Wednesday evenings.
Serving up traditional teatime treats throughout the day, the London Cat Village menu includes elaborately decorated cakes, warming hot drinks and cooling iced coffees. Tempting desserts, served in delicate glassware, offer extra-level luxury.
Plush rainbow-coloured bean bags and split-tree-trunk tables are dotted through the dining room at London Cat Village, and springy artificial grass is felt underfoot.
A stress-busting experience that’s currently one of London’s most sought after, this cat café in Shoreditch is found just 5 minutes’ walk from Old Street Station. Please note that London Cat Village do not admit any child under 12.

Sociable cats, good cakes (we had pumpkin cake and apple pie), friendly staff and clean place. Girlfriend loved it.

The food we had was delicious. If their strawberry cheesecake is on offer when you visit you won't regret ordering it: it's amazing!

I really enjoyed the film night and it was much appreciated that we also were given some cat treats that encouraged the cats to have contact with us and gave us the experience of interacting with the cats, which was part of the reason why we wanted to visit this particular cafe. It's wonderful to see how well looked after the cats are and I found it impressive that the food rating certificate was 5, despite of having live animals around. A little bit on the expensive side what it comes to the price of cake from the visitor point of view, but I do appreciate that premises are quite small and considering that you can't have many people in at any one time it wouldn't be cost effective to run the place if the prices were lower.

We didn't get in because we were 20 mins late plus about 5 mins waiting outside for them to open the door! Even though there was 45 mins until close and cake doesn't need to be cooked and there was space for us to sit down (only four others in there at the time); it was a wasted journey. I didn't get to take my friend there for his birthday and he was really disappointed.

Lovely to have such a comfortable place to come to, and to meet all the furry residents! They and their human helpers did a great job of keeping me entertained.

Had a lovely visit to cat village. Good fresh mint tea and carrot cake and plenty of time with the cats.

I decided to go from an impromptu birthday visit, and I loved it! It was so much fun playing with the cats (all of whom were very cute and very friendly.) The staff was lovely and there was fast service - not to mention the food and drinks were amazing! It was a great way to spend my birthday.

When I went to the toilet 2 cats accompanied me. The ginger one and a bengal. They were very friendly.
