There is a small (think: four tables) café area, with coffee house drinks and treats, all with fun cat-themed names. Jeffrey had a Meowcaron and I had a Café au Lay on My Keyboard.
The café area has windows that look into the cat lounge. To enter the cat lounge, you need to make a reservation for a one-hour time frame. Weekday reservations are $10 per person, weekend reservations are $12, student reservations are $8, and a 10-hour day pass is $49. Children are welcome and those over 5 years old require a separate reservation.
Before you enter the cat lounge, you get a review of the cat lounge rules and then it’s kitty time.
The cats in the lounge currently range in age from 8 months to 13 years, with all the different energy levels and personalities that go along with it.
Jeffrey’s favorite was Trish Panda, who enjoyed playing string toy games and even let Jeffrey pet her a bit.
The cat lounge has everything from cozy places to curl up with a furry friend to desks to work. There are phone chargers, books, games, and cat toys…everything you need to make a visit fun, productive, relaxing, or whatever else you might be seeking.
I’m seriously wishing I saved my papasan chair from college after seeing how much Jeffrey liked this one!
I am a confirmed dog person, but I did find the residents and the concept of Affogato Cat Café to be really sweet. Adoptable animals always have a special place in my heart Affogato provides a great way to find a new adoptable pet or just have some cozy kitty time. Jeffrey certainly loved it, if his individual goodbyes to each cat are any indication.
Affogato is now open Wednesday through Sunday from 11am-9pm. Remember, if you want to visit with the kitties, you need to make a reservation online.
