My family and I visited after looking forward to it for a while, and the kids were very intrigued by the idea of the cafe. However, we were a bit disappointed since all the cats were sleepy. The staff was friendly, but upon our entry,...More

The café has 10 quirky cats and a witty intro letter to each and everyone of these lovable fluffs. Don't expect the coziest cuddlers though, because these guys are just going about doing their things. (Only if you're lucky, Joosje might become your lap warmer)....More
