But with better food definitely a spot for all cat lovers out there. Amazing vegetarian and vegan options on the menu and so tasty! Cats everywhere! Had this fella sleeping at our table.

While they way they advertise the cats inside felt a little like a strip club to me, this place is a must see for any cat lover passing through Montreal! All of the feline friends here are actually super friendly and while a couple of them are a bit aloof, none displayed any aggressive tendencies while I was there so they're perfect even for people who worry about cat scratches. There are a specific set of rules to follow but none of them would come as a surprise to anyone who has ever been around cats.

My favorite of the bunch is mousse, a grey boy who is cool with a good rubbing behind the ears. Some of the cats just like to sit in the window but they are still so soothing to look at. The music helps set a vibe to relax as well.

I didn't have any of the food but the tea in a puking cat carafe was perfect! While I can not have any cats of my own due to allergies, these kitties did not really set off dander alarms and I would come back here any time. Such a magical side street find in the hip Plateau Mont Royal neighborhood!

Really quirky place to visit and the cats are amazing. Definitely worth a trip if your into cats. We went early in the morning and where practically first people there so had time with the cats.

The place has a nice atmosphere and feel.

My coffee wasn’t absolutely amazing however, my friends said their soup and drink were fine.

I was very unsure about a cafe filled with cats, but I was blown away! I started off with a latte followed by the "cat lady" grilled cheese. Both were absolutely amazing. On top of that, the restaurant was very clean for having as many cats as they do running around! The cats were so sweet which added to the experience. I would definitely recommend this cute little cafe, even to non-cat lovers!
