    Kittycafe Leeds Really enjoyed our hour with the cats and kittens, shame you only have 1 hour we could have stayed longer! Very clean, chilled out cafe, the cats are all lovely, shame your not allowed to pick them up and cuddle them, this would make the experience better if you could! We had tea and carrot cake which was tasty. Would recommend this kittycafe to all cat lovers out there! Would visit again ????

    I had such a great time at the kitty cafe! I went with my partner who also loves cats and we had a great time playing with the cats and the food and atmosphere was also great! I can’t wait to go back. Was looking forward to the cafe opening all year and it definitely met my expectations and was even better!

    I went for my first visit to Leeds Kitty Cafe on the 21st December with a friend and we had an amazing experience. We were limited for time as we were on our lunch hour but thanks to the fantastic service we didn't have to rush and still had lots of time to play with the kitties. When we arrived we were greeted by lovely staff and the beautiful Pudding sauntered over to check us out through the door as we were checking in. We were seated on one of the beautiful sofas in a nice quiet corner and started to see all of the beautiful cats who were out and about. Ninja, Pixie, Dolly and some others whose names we didn't get were milling around loving the attention (and in Pixies case, trying to kill the evil draught proofing brush on the door through to where the toilets are) and then we spotted Lulu and Johnny who were my particular favourites as I am a massive fan of Maine Coons. I was glad to hear that Lulu is a resident so I can go and see her again. When our food arrived (a jacket potato with tuna and a bacon and mozzarella panini) we were both impressed with the speed of its arrival and the quality of the food. It was far superior to a lot of more mundane cafes I have visited. I am already planning my next visit and hoping that the mocktails will be all up and running by then. The surroundings are beautiful, the food is good, the staff are lovely and the ability to interact with so many beautiful animals is a brilliant experience. Thank you.

    I booked a table at the kitty cafè in Leeds for my daughters 17th birthday. We were greeted upon arrival & run through the do's & don't's regarding the resident cats to ensure their safety & welfare. We were then escorted to our table. The interior is colourful & modern. A lovely layout to the whole cafè. It was exceptionally clean! My fear was that it was going to have hairs on the chairs & cats walking over the tables. It wasn't at all like that. There were food covers provided, on all tables, in the event that a cat did join you for lunch! The food we ordered came promptly & was very nice. The cake I ordered I couldn't eat after being full from my Jacket potato, so it was boxed for me to take away with no issues. We had a look around the cafè & met a couple of kittens playing at the opposite side of the cafè. Towards the end of our booking one if the older cats came to sit with us by the window. It stayed on the climbing tree between our seats just observing us, not jumping on tables as I imagined the cafè to be. Overall, a very enjoyable experience. Reasonably priced too.

    We ordered cake and tea, I had wanted a mocktail but they didn’t have any, the service was a little slow (we had to ask staff where our order was at) bear in mind we had a booking for 16:45 and we didn’t get our food until 17:30. And you’re only allowed an hour in the cafe. I would go back but maybe in 6 months or so when the cafe has been open long enough to have more experience and more cats (there was only 13 cats in at the moment) and if I’m honest, there were a LOT of screaming kids. I don’t know if a feature where children should be accompanied by an adult should be a thing. But it was a great experience!
