List of Cat Cafes in Metro Manila

As a traveler for several years now, I have a vast reserve of energy and enthusiasm. The thrill of seeing new places, spaces, and faces motivates me to keep my legs moving and my schedule busy. But sometimes, I get burnout too. That’s why I also spend time looking for more creative ways to unwind.

Recently, I discovered a… purr-fect way to relax during my me-time weekends, and that is to spend some time in a cat café! Sleeping in and lying down in bed all day is one good way to relax on any day, but nothing beats a Cat-urday with a cup of coffee or two with our purr-y friends. I’m a fan of coffee, but I’m a bigger fan of cats. If you want to paws and reflect on your ever-busy life, or maybe fur-get all your worries for a moment, read on. Here’s a list of the cat cafes in Metro Manila that you need to cat out right meow:

The café area is separated from the cat lounge, so you must finish your drink first.

Built on the advocacy for responsible pet ownership, Cat Café Manila has partnered with the non-profit animal welfare organization Compassion and Responsibility for Animals (CARA). The café provides a home to several cats and promotes the appreciation of puspins (pusang pinoy), not just certain breeds of felines.

The cat café is open from 12 PM to 8 PM from Monday to Thursday and from 12 PM to 10 PM on Fridays to Sundays. Pastries cost around Php 30 to Php 90, while drinks are priced from Php 70 to Php 140. Make sure to keep your chocolate crinkle to yourself, as it can be bad for the precious kitties!

  • Address: #7 Congressional (2F of Cake2Go) Quezon City, Philippines 1106 Metro Manila
  • Telephone: (02) 274 7937

This aesthetic cat café is open daily from 11 AM to 10 PM. Aside from coffee, the café also serves milkshakes, pasta, cheese sticks, and onion rings, so you can satiate yourself before relaxing with the cats afterwards. The prices of drinks range from Php 70 (for unlimited iced tea!) to Php 160 (for your choice of frappe).

Notes and tips:

  1. Before visiting a cat café, consult their website or social media accounts for reservations. Some cafés in the list, like Cat Café Manila, encourage reservations as they limit the number of people who can stay in the cat play area per hour, in consideration of the felines.
  2. Minimize your noise when entering the playground or lounge where the cats are. Cats dislike noisy environments, which makes them anxious. You don’t want the cats to feel bad.
  3. Some don’ts: Do not feed the cats with any food you purchase in the café area; do not wake them up when they are sleeping (they can get grumpy!), and do not carry them forcibly to you. Also, some cafés do not allow customers to touch the cats directly.
  4. Cats are very photogenic creatures! But make sure to turn off the flash when taking pictures of them. Sudden bright flashes cause cats discomfort, just like us when taking a selfie, and we forget to turn off the flash. Yikes!

Enjoy your time, and have a purr-fect weekend!
