Located near popular foodie hangout Beijing Lu, Meow Cafe is popular with young urbanites and, when we visited on a weekday evening, a throng of curious pedestrians were standing around outside taking photos.
Upon entering the cramped shop, visitors are asked to remove their shoes and put on plastic foot covers, as well as wash their hands. Store policy is as follows: you can stay for no more than two hours, there’s no admittance of children under 6 years old, each customer must order at least one drink or food item and those afraid of being scratched or bitten should reconsider their visit. Another rule states that visitors are not allowed to hold or cuddle the cats. Staff will also warn visitors about engaging with four particularly fierce cats whose mugshots adorn the walls: Blue, Old Yellow, Yuanyuan and Little Tramp.
The three-year-old cat cafe offers reasonably priced set meals that feed one, two or four patrons. Prices for drinks, however, are steep, with the price of a cup of coffee starting at RMB40.
It’s also worth noting that those in Haizhu can visit Meow Cafe’s second location, which is on Gexin Lu near Taigucang Wharf.
