One of London's most hotly-anticipated openings, Lady Dinah's Cat Emporium is home to some of London's best-loved felines. This tranquil setting is a permanent home for Lady Dinah's rescue cats, who're free to pad around the dining room while you enjoy your teatime treats. Staying true to its East London roots, the cat café offers locally-made savoury bagels, a 3-tiered ploughman's lunch and indulgent cakes, as well as the finest loose leaf teas and coffees.

Customer reviews for Lady Dinahs Cat Emporium

Lady Dinah's is a unique experience. Not just for the cats but an added bonus of their controlled numbers is that its a very chilled atmosphere and you will always have a seat - not your typical London cafe then!
The decor and ambience is, as said, chilled with great little quirky elements and of course - cats.
They serve high quality food and tea.

Not worth the 8 week waiting list that they have! Service extremely slow, overpriced food and struggled to find a seat with a table to accommodate 2 coffees and food.

CATS ALL WELL LOOKED AFTER, CAFE SPLIT BETWEEN TWO FLOORS. CATS DO INTERACT WELL. WILL VISIT AGAIN, PLEASE GIVE THIS PLACE A TRY AND YOU WILL ENJOY !!!!! £5 POUND BOOKING FEE BUT WELL WORTH THE EXPERIENCE. FOOD PRICES ARE GOOD FOR LONDON. THE STAFF PLAY WITH THE CATS AND YOU CAN ENJOY A SMOOTH !!!

It was a lovely experience. The choice of food was nice and the staff were very helpful, advising us on which toys each cat liked best. All of the cats were great and very relaxed. I would highly recommend going here and I hopefully will be paying more visits.

Really enjoyed my trip to Lady Dinah's - it is such a great idea. The cats are so cute and the staff are very good at identifying them and explaining their individual characters and the toys they like playing with. The food was really nice and good service. I had a very nice bagel and my boyfriend the ploughmans - the cakes looked yummy but we couldn't manage one! It is definitely one for cat lovers though and also people who understand that cats like their own space and not to be bothered if the are sleeping!

My friend and I visited on 4 July, we had a lovely relaxing couple of hours. The cats are all real characters, there was plenty of room for them and us! We had bagels and tea, but wished we had gone for the ploughmans the guy had on the next table next to us, that looked delicious :) this place is well worth a visit, the staff were really friendly. It was really peaceful in there, with the cats were just mooching around you coming up to say hello in their own time. Will definitely visit again!
