Foodie utopia and… animals? Foodie utopia bringing to you a rather cute (and fluffy) experience one afternoon, featuring some furry kitties, a cup of coffee and a muffin to go with it.
Coffee shops in the city have recently introduced animals coming from animal shelters to house in their facilities, in hopes of providing these furry creatures a forever home. With a purchase of items from their selection of cafe classics, you’re able to enter the cat’s playroom where you can pet and enjoy the company of a fair few of cats. Anyone who enjoys animals in general, especially cats, would have a great morning/afternoon here at Tot The Cat Cafe.
The establishment itself was interesting – the front foyer was a bit old, but inside had everything you could imagine that screamed “cats”. Cat paintings, cat books, cat drawings on the big chalkboard menu, you name it! You could even purchase the paintings that they had displayed for charity.
This day, my company and I purchased simply a coffee, latte and some blueberry muffins to snack on. The food itself was mediocre, but the ambiance of the place allowed some relaxation because it was quite homey. We had to wait a little bit in order to get into the cat’s playroom, since there is only a set number of people that can go inside at a time, but otherwise, we were able to enjoy and chat over our drinks and food before greeting the cats!
The cats themselves were quite reserved, honestly when you try to pet them they generally run away. They stick to themselves and only walk by you. It’s a bit dirty inside as well, but I can see why considering the area housed the cats for long periods of time. It was nice to see some of the patrons enjoying the company of the cats though.
I’m not opposed to cats, but I don’t have a great loving for them either. Maybe that’s why my experience with them wasn’t as great as one would expect. However, from an objective view, I can see why cat lovers would like it – so if you are one, Tot The Cat Cafe has its own mini cat heaven in the heart of Toronto!
