About Us

Purrfect Café & Gallery opened in August 2018 and is located in the heart of Hertel Avenue in Buffalo, NY. Owner, Jessica Brandon was first inspired after visiting "Cat in the Window Café" located in Aberdeen, Scotland. From there, Brandon brought the idea back to home sweet Buffalo and thus Purrfect Café was born!

Purrfect Café has several adoptable cats from various local rescues. We also partner with local artists to display and sell their artwork to promote the expansive art scene present in Buffalo. The Cat Lounge provides a comfortable space for visitors to enjoy a drink and the company of cats for a small fee. It's a purrfect place to read a book, do some work and just unwind with some furry friends paired with a wide variety of baked goods and drinks from our Café.
