What even is a Cat Café??
We're glad you asked! A Cat Café is a Purrfect combination of coffee shop with the added bonus of cats! Purrfect Café & Gallery is a unique place visitors come to grab a drink and enjoy the company of cats in a relaxing and comfortable environment.
Our space is sectioned into two separate areas - one side is the Cat Lounge, the other is our Café. The Café side currently offers a range of drinks including coffee, tea, smoothies, espresso drinks as well as beer, wine and cider. Pastries, baked goods and lighter fare food items are supplied by local bakers or made in-house and all can be enjoyed in the Cat Lounge.
The Cat Lounge provides a cozy and colorful space for people to enjoy our café items in the company of cats! Our Cat Lounge typically houses 10-15 cats/kittens at any given time and can accommodate up to 10 guests. We have partnered with Tabby Town - Cat Adoption Center to bring in adoptable cats and kittens in search of their furrever homes. We act as a foster and house these cats until they they find their purrfect match. There is a small entrance fee to enter the Cat Lounge that allows us to stay in business and provide a cage-free environment for these cats to reside in until they catch their big break and get adopted! If you aren't looking to adopt, no worries! These cats will
appreciate your company and socializing with them!
We love promoting local business and artwork so we have also partnered with a number of talented artists and crafters to make their work available for purchase right here here! You can browse locally made artwork, pick up hand-made cat toys or snag some cool cat swag during your visit!
What should I expect?? (Updated for COVID)
When you arrive, you will notice there are two doors on our store front. The right side door leads to our café - Enter Here (with proper face covering). The left side door leads to the atrium of the Cat Lounge which will serve as our Exit. Check in with the café staff to place your order, cash out and fill out release forms. (The Release Form can be done in advanced. If possible, please fill these out from home prior to your appointment or visit).
The café space does not house any cats so anyone who doesn't wish to enter the Cat Lounge is welcome to hang out on the café side - please keep social distancing guidelines in mind. There is no admission fee to hang out in the café, only an admission fee to enter the Cat Lounge. When your time comes, please check in with Cat Lounge staff at the window in the atrium prior to entering the space. All visitors must be wearing a mask and will be asked to sanitize their hands upon entering the space. Once inside the Lounge, all visitors must remove their shoes for the safety of our cats. Slippers are available upon request for a small fee.
Masks must be worn in the Cat Lounge at all times unless you are sitting at a table and need to remove it to eat or drink. Please be mindful of others when walking around the space to ensure safe social distancing. Once you are in the Lounge, if you need something from the Café, please let the Lounge staff know to limit travel between the spaces. Once your time is up, please Exit through the atrium.
Sip a tasty beverage, lounge with some cats and take a load off! We aim to make our space comfortable and enjoyable for all of our guests!
Anything else I should know?
Reservations are strongly encouraged. We accept walk-ins as space permits but recommend making a reservation to avoid coming at a time we are at capacity or holding an event.
To hang out with our Purrfect Crew in the Cat Lounge, we charge a small admission fee of $8 for 50 minutes or $5 for 30 Minutes (Available to Walk-Ins only at the top of the hour). This fee helps us provide a cage-free space to house these cats until they find homes!
Everyone is required to fill out a Waiver & Release form on their first visit. Please fill out ahead of time to avoid eating into your reserved time. The Waiver can be found HERE. (Minors under 18 years of age require a parent or guardian to sign a waiver on their behalf).
We have 10-15 cats at any given time, all of which are adoptable through Tabby Town. Though we have adoptable cats, there is no pressure to adopt - our cats will enjoy socializing with you!
We have loads of artwork and crafts available if your are looking to shop for yourself or for a gift for someone else.
