Loved our visit to the Colony Cafe! It was wonderful to visit with the kitties while we had lunch and tea. The flatbread was great. The kitty company was even better. Such a wonderful way to find forever homes for these kitties.

Pittsburgh has many excellent coffee shops, and Colony certainly holds its own. All the lattes I have gotten here are perfectly prepared and the housemaid flavors or delightful. I have had the same barista every time I have gone, so I am not sure if...More

Wonderful place with helpful staff. They know each cat’s personality and give suggestions for what they like and don’t like. My granddaughter loves to visit and play with the cats. Children must be at least 8 years old and accompanied by an adult.
