Good food, cute cats, a must-see in Austin. - Edit

Traveling to Austin for their annual convention, RTX, I decided to go to this place because it was close to where I was staying and was open late. Boy I'm glad I did.
The cats were adorable, friendly, and playful (way moreso than Seattle's cat cafe cats). The food was DELICIOUS (I got the grilled cheese and peppermint mocha, everything is vegan). The staff was super polite and friendly, and the atmosphere of the place was homey, cool, and everything you'd expect from Austin. Cats are adoptable via the Austin Humane Society. They have all sorts of ACTUALLY cool cat merch available to buy, all reasonably prices. Vegan or not, definitely a must-go of you are visiting Austin or live there.

Pros: food, atmosphere, cats

Cons: none

Loved it! - Edit

Great place to go when you have nothing to do. The food was delicious, great set up, loved the cats, but the it took forever to get our food (except we actually ended up getting it in the house it took so long). Overall I would go again, great experience and maybe it won't be as slow.

Pros: cats, food

Cons: slow service

Food OK Idea Purrfect - Edit

Too full from vegan tamales to order dessert. Food just o.k. But would like to give the ""Cake in A Jar" a try. The more ways we get critters adopted the better.

Pros: Adoptable cats.

Cats and loved and place is clean - Edit

It's about the friendly cats. The food is secondary. You can visit for just a drink and a dessert treat. This is probably your best bet.

spectacular concept, great food, good service - Edit

What a grand idea! I might be a biased cat-loving vegan but this cafe was awesome! My cinnamon iced coffee and fajita wrap were both great! My husband had soy chicken for the first time and enjoyed it too! Score! :). The kitties were too cute playing in the rafters.

Pros: kittens!, tasty vegan food!, good cause

Cons: could have been cleaner

Food so good & cats so friendly - Edit

My husband & I split the Southwest Wrap which was very good & slightly spicy. My husband went back for the BBQ Jack fruit & the Pumpkitten coffee both of which he said were delicious. When he was in the Cat Cafe, a super friendly cat, with his encouragement, climbed down his arm & onto his shoulders. Really fun experience.

Pros: Good food & friendly cats

go for the kitty cats - Edit

Adorable decor and cutest lil kitties . We tried the pumpkin coffee and it was great . The fee for the cats is fine in my opinion and the only thing that wasn't great was the service. Both servers were pretty moody and you'll think someone would be happier surrounded by cats all day ! Would still probably go back for the snuggles and a coffee

Pros: cats, good drinks

Cons: service

Enjoyable atmosphere - Edit

Really fun and enjoyable place to eat, have a cup of coffee and enjoy the company of cats. Food was really good, had a Wasabi dog and Brisket sandwich. Recommend the Brisket.

What a cool place - Edit

We stumbled upon this café accidently our first night in Austin. It turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip! We were hungry, my wife is vegan, so the serendipity of that alone was fortuitous. To have the place inhabited by cats was the icing (carob). What a great concept. The staff was wonderful, the food was really really delicious, a vegan take on Texas barbecue. The owner was gracious and charming. We could not have asked for more.

Pros: food, cats, staff

terrible service - Edit

Great idea. very poor execution. a complete mess to check in and sign the waiver. Service was terrible. Sat over ten minutes and then left without anyone coming over. The area is full of vegan restaurants. I would skip if you are hungry.

Fyi, there is a $3 cover/person to cover cat expenses

Pros: cats!, all vegan, great art

Cons: ridiculous service, very disorganized check in process

Great place - Edit

The food is hot dogs, sammiches, & tacos. I had the BrisCat sammich & enjoyed it. The artwork inside & out is really fun, & the cat canopies/elevated trails are interesting. Although most of them were napping midday. I strongly recommend this place. It's separate facility from the Food Truck outside from where you get your food, but they do bring it inside to your table

Pros: Menu is entirely vegan. Good cause
