Before my flight from Cebu to New York, USA, my two brothers, mom and myself went to a cat cafe in Cebu City. It wasn’t my first cat cafe experience, though. Along with my brother, who absolutely adores cats (I’m more of a dog person but I don’t abhor cats or anything), I already visited a cat cafe in Korea (in the busy district of Hongdae, Seoul) and another one in Shinjuku, Tokyo, Japan – the Cat Cafe Calico Japan (which was accordingly one of the oldest and more popular ones in Tokyo). I think cat cafes are creative, innovative businesses that gives animal lovers the chance to interact with furry, feline friends. There are dog cafes nowadays, too. I have yet to visit one, though.
Anyway, the Cebu cat cafe we went to was…well, Cat Cafe Philippines. From their original spot in Guadalupe, they’re now located at the roofdeck of SM Seaside Cebu. I believe this cat cafe is the first in the entire Philippines.
I made a quick vlog about our cat cafe Cebu experience. Check this out:
For now, there aren’t any additional charges if you go inside the room where the cats are. Just order something from their menu (which I took photos of and you can see them down below). We ordered coffees, banana split and mango float. Nothing fancy and I think the prices were fair especially since you didn’t have to pay for your time with the cats. Other cafes charge separate fees for that.
There are also rules to follow including not carrying the cats, not feeding them with human food and not using the camera flash when you take photos with the kitties. The full list of rules can be found below as well.
Looking forward to visiting Cat Cafe again real soon!
