So as you know Andrew and I recently moved to Bethnal Green in East London. We absolutely love it here, it pretty much has everything we need on the high street which is at the top of our road. On my walk to work one day I realized that we actually live 5 minutes from London’s one and only Cat Café and instantly booked a table for afternoon tea!
I’m very much a cat person and dream of the day I can have my own (this flat doesn’t allow pets) and so the thought of sipping tea, eating cake and petting kitties is perfect!
After arriving at the café you enter a room in which you wash your hands & are told the café rules such as don’t feed the cats your cake, don’t lift them up (but you can pet & stroke them) and don’t wake any cats that are sleeping.
Once we were seated at our table we ordered cream tea & scones and a delicious salted caramel brownie to chomp on whilst coo-ing over the cats. Quite a few of them were napping when we got there (after 4pm) but woke up half way through. There are 3 new kittens in the cafe who are ADORABLE and we had so much fun playing with the newest kitten Alice.
On every table in the cafe are little toys that you can use to play with the cats which was a nice touch. I also fell in love with a cat called Petra; super fluffy and adventurous! All of the cats have names and their own little personalities which you can read about on their website here, before you visit!
We had a lovely afternoon in the cafe and I really want to visit again soon!
Have you ever been to a cat cafe?
