My family just took a trip to New York and going to Koneko was definitely one of the highlights. It's a very airy and nice space (both the café and the cattery). The cats are a great experience, but you don't have to visit the...More

I hate writing such a bad review but this place was terrible. Paid $63 for my husband and me to take our 3 year old to basically just pet one car for 10 minutes. Waited 10 minutes to get a stamp when there was no...More

I love cats and I was a pedigree cats owner for many years. When I learned about the Koneko cat cafe I was very excited to share the experience with my kids (6 and 13 years old). However my excitement quickly turned into a huge...More

We visited on a rainy evening and got to spend an hour with the cats. The cafe staff are friendly and welcoming. They talked about the different cats, their history etc. Lots of cats were napping but all enjoyed some attention and some more playful...More

This was the third time that we’ve visited Koneko in as many years. Whilst the cats can be adopted, we just visit as part of our holiday from the UK. Great staff, drinks and a safe place for cats to be. Will be back next...More

Very nice, clean cattery with three levels of cats. Wednesday is 1/2 off the admission price so I paid $12 to visit with the cats. There were 18 of them and all very healthy and mostly playful. The outside enclosure is very accomodating to them...More

As an owner of two cats, I should have known better than to arrive in the middle of afternoon. While it is a common misconception that cats sleep 16-18 hours a day (mine sleep about 16 minutes a day), they do tend to have some...More

Since I only had to pay for one person to enter to pet the cats ($20), it didn't seem too expensive but a family of 3 or 4 - I think that price is kind of high per person. You do not have to pay...More

OK, I thought it was very pricey, but I lost out on this one and had to include it. We were lucky that there were only seven of us in our timeslot as the next one seemed to have a lot more people. The cat's...More

You pay 20 bucks and get to spend 1hour with about 10-15 cats. They are cute and the atmosphere iis relaxing, you can bring your beer into the cattery. Great for kids! You can touch the cats so it's way better than the zoo.
