‘A perfect treat for any cat lover! The staff are lovely and very accommodating and there are 12 cats that live at the cafe who you can interact with. You book a 1-hour slot and can meet the cats and also have a drink and cake if you want to (the cake was excellent too!). If you like cats (and cafes), you’ll love it!’
– Maison de Moggy Tripadvisor Review
So, what is a cat café?
The cat café concept originated in Taiwan in the 1990s and has since spread globally. The idea is simple. It offers everything an ordinary café would, but with the added bonus of cats! Customers are encouraged to roam around and interact with the kitties, who are owned and cared for by the café owners. The cat café near Edinburgh’s Grassmarket opened in 2015 and has been extremely popular with cat lovers in Scotland. So much so, it is highly recommended you book in advance to ensure entry.
