I had been driving past Alley Cat Cafe for a while since it moved to its new location on the corner of Albert st and Rubicon st Sebastopol thinking I really want to check that place out!
Today I finally had the chance to stop and I'm so glad I did. On one side you have the cafe, full of vintage cat wares, it's super funky. On the other side you have the cats!
My son and I sat down to our Mexican spud (so yum!) while owner, Tania, told us how she and daughter Chloe make all the food from scratch with love, plus everything is locally sourced.
She went on to tell me how they have 7 gorgeous felines living next door. People or groups can go in and just be with the cats. It's like cat therapy! Tania and fellow cat lover Sheryl have decked the place our beautifully, it's like a cat wonderland!
You can visit the cat Wednesday - Sunday 10am-12pm + 2pm-4pm. Adults $5, Kids, students and oldies $2 or bring a donation of food, kitty litter etc that's always appreciated too.
The cafe is open Wednesday - Sunday 10-4pm
