Amazing place to chill in a quiet room with lots of cats. Highly recommend for cat owners who miss their cat back home.

Hi Joseph, our minimum age requirement of 7 years old is clearly stated on our website and Facebook page. This is the only 'rule' you were not happy with because your 2 year old daughter could not enter. We hope you will have the opportunity...More

Not a great deal difference in price (after the cover charge) to other cafes but this definitely has a big plus in having free roaming kitties. I was missing my own cats so was hoping one would sit on my lap but no joy. Cats...More

features historical sites and a buzzing riverfront
vibe. Clarke Quay caters to the party crowd, while
Robertson Quay appeals to the leisurely wanderer.
Weekends at Robertson Quay and Martin Road also give a
peek into the lives of expats in Singapore, as the

They have a very useful website with opening times, menus and fees - from memory they do not open on a Tuesday. Minimum time period with cats is 1 hour ($12). They also offer a 3 hour rate and a day pass. Hope this helps.

Yes you can, but you have to respect the cafè rules. For instance: you can cuddle them if they are awake otherwise you can't ..in any case very reasonable rules :) Enjoy it!
