Some Commonly Asked Questions

  • What is a Cat Café?

    • Taiwan opened the first Cat Café in 1998, and the concept has been popularized in Japan. Although this business model is a novel one here in the US, it's taking off! At Catnip & Coffee, you can enjoy a fresh cup of locally roasted coffee, while hanging out with local, adoptable cats. No pressure to adopt. ​

  • Is Catnip & Coffee Family Friendly?

    • YES! Although, you must be 18 or older to sign our waiver and secure a reservation, children under 12 must be under constant adult-supervision.

  • ​Can I bring my own cat?

    • Just remember "We Provide The Kittens, You Provide The Sittings"! So, please leave your beautiful feline at home, and simply enjoy the adoptable cats we provide.​

  • What is the catch?

    • There is none! You can spend quality time with the local adoptable cats, which helps socialize them. $15 gets you Cat Lounge admission for an hour, and a select beverage. If you don't want to enter the cat lounge, and are just here for the coffee, that is okay too!​

  • Can you help me rehome my cat?

    • We work with Berkeley Animal Center, taking in their adoptable cats that have been fully vetted and ready for a new home. We are unable to take in owned or found cats. Please contact Berkeley Animal Center for strays and rehoming personal cats. ​
