About Us

Established in 2014, Cat Cafe Melbourne was Australia's first cat cafe. Our passion and love for cats has driven us to opening a cat cafe in Melbourne for all to share this incredible social experience. We have several adorable resident cats in a calm and relaxing environment where you can let your inner crazy cat person out!

All the cats at Cat Cafe Melbourne are from rescue shelters. We believe in giving animals from shelters a second chance and our kitties are the purrfect representatives of the loving cats that can be found at shelters. Cat Cafe Melbourne has worked closely with The Lost Dog's Home, in North Melbourne, and the Geelong Animal Welfare Society, in Geelong. With their help we selected our cuddly kitties and we hope to increase awareness of the benefits of rescue animals. All the cafe cats are proudly sponsored by Hill's Science Diet for great quality wet and dry food, as well as special dietary food to ensure the cats always have the purrfect diet.

How does it work?

Customers can book in for hourly sessions via our website which cost $12 per person for the entry. Please not we have an age restriction of 8 years old and over only. During your session you have access to the ground floor lounge area, and the first floor cafe area. The cats have access to both floors via their own internal staircase.

We offer a small selection of sweet treats and beverages for you to enjoy with the cats. This means you can sit back and enjoy your latte in furry company! We also have a range of cat-themed merchandise and gifts for both humans and cats.
