Great cafe, good snacks and coffee, very cosy and comfortable atmosphere. Cats are lovely but a bit reserved (understandably so), but still nice to look at. Would come again :)

    We chose this cafe for the cats. But we were pleasently surprised at the quality and presentation of the food. The food was delish and really reasonably priced. The staff were so nice and friendly. Really enjoyed chatting and learning about the cats.

    The waffles were delicious but the star attraction here was of course the wonderful cats!

    Such a wonderful hour spent at this is a coffee shop. Great atmosphere, lovely surroundings, love the relaxed rustic feel. A very warm welcome on arrival which continued throughout and the cats were truly purrfect.

    Very pleasant experience all round. Incredibly relaxed environment and a booking of an hour felt about right. All present had their own space in the restaurant. Very nice food for the time of day and an interesting array of drinks. Service was very prompt; instructions on interactions with the cats very clear and both my children in particular thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Location was a little odd (I presume this is now a somewhat cool area, can't say I was blown away by the location) but once in the restaurant/cat home, very enjoyable and we were very well looked after by very nice people and some very lovely cats. Thoroughly recommend the experience.

    The place is very nice and the food and drinks are delicious. Having said that, the experience is a bit overpriced, as each person has to pay a 5£ fee on top of having to order something to eat/drink and you are only allowed to stay for 1 hour. The cats are cute and the food is good but it is simply not worth the price.

    I felt the staff were quite rude and tried to rush us out. They even came and told us we have “15 minutes left of our reservation” and bought over the card machine before we had finished our food. The waitress sat by our side and said she is going to sit there for a while which I found invasive. No one else in the restaurant had such persistent service which was annoying.
