You read the article title right: San Diego has a cat café. Located in the heart of downtown San Diego, the establishment allows each adoptable cat to bond with customers in a relaxed and playful environment. Although San Diego is known as a pet-friendly community that often welcomes dogs at many of its establishments, the Cat Cafe is the first of its kind in San Diego. Here is everything you need to know about the new café, brought to you by the curious staff at the Pacific Inn Hotel & Suites.
Coffee and Cats
San Diego has a long list of cafes for coffee enthusiasts who want to relax and enjoy some freshly brewed beans. However, The Cat Cafe is the first to have cats on-site for guests who want to do more than order coffee or read a good book. Cat Cafes are popular establishments in Taiwan, Japan, London, and Paris, and give adoptable cats a place to get some human love and affection rather than staying in cages at local shelters.
Benefits for Customers
The cats aren’t the only ones to win in the situation, research has shown people who regularly interact with cats experienced reduced stress, lower blood pressure, and endorphin release. If you find a feline you just can’t live without, you don’t have to. All of the cats (with the exception of two full-time cats) are available to adopt on the spot through a partnership with the San Diego Human Society.
The High-Quality Menu
The Cat Café offers a full menu of espresso drinks and locally roasted coffee. It has also partnered with a local bakery to offer delicious muffins and other baked goods. Food and drink are purchased in a different space, separated by a wall from the cat room, although patrons are allowed to bring their drinks in the room at their own risk.
Kitty Quiet Room
There is an additional, private space for the cats to retreat when they need a break or just want to sleep. It’s also where they are able to do their business since no customer can enjoy coffee in a litter box.
The Cat Café is the first of its kind in the country, so even if you aren’t a cat lover or can’t take one home with you, it might still be worth checking out just to say you did.
