Reservations to spend time in the cafe are highly encouraged. We do allow walk-ins, but it’s likely that you will have to wait for a spot to open up. There is a minimum spend or donation of $5 for all walk ins. A reservation ensures that there will be a spot waiting for you!

There is a $10 per person reservation fee that gets you an hour in the lounge. It helps us cover the cost of maintaining the cat lounge and caring for the cats. As a bonus, you will get a free beverage (per person) and 20% off any food or additional beverages purchased.

Children under 12 are $5 and get a non-coffee beverage. ***THERE IS A LIMIT OF 2 CHILDREN PER EVERY 1 ADULT GUARDIAN IN THE LOUNGE.***

You may cancel or make changes to your reservation up to one day prior. If you do not show up for your reservation, the fee will not be refunded.

Please arrive on time. Guests arriving more than 15 minutes late will lose their reservation in the lounge and will have to move to the end of the waitlist.

We try not to strictly enforce the 1 hour time limit. We don’t want you to feel rushed, and sometimes you just need a few more minutes with that cat on your lap. However, we appreciate your awareness of your time, and that there may be other reservations waiting. If there aren’t others waiting, you can stay longer (just ask the lounge assistant on duty)
