Pokemeow @ Rosebery

I must admit, I’ve drove past this a few times and because I’m not personally a fan of cats, I haven’t gone in. It is an ornamental cat cafe and playground, so if you’re a cat lover, it is totally your thing.

Basically you can sit in the cafe and enjoy a coffee and a meal whilst you watch little kittens in an adjoining room through a glass wall. For $10 fee, you can also book and enter the cat playground to play with the cats for 30 mins from Thursday – Sunday. An attached shop also sells pet gear and offers grooming services for cats and dogs.

A friend wanted to meet me there, so I obliged. Glad I did, for the coffee is brilliant. They use ona beans and make a damn good cup. So much so, I returned two days in a row.

Food wise, there’s a limited menu, and whilst it’s not my style; with ham and cheese croissants, smashed avo and a poached egg on sourdough, bacon and egg roles, granola, beef and chicken burgers, lamb shanks, pasta and French toast, it’s certainly popular with the clientele. I’d like to see a salad, lighter meals or some healthy options.

The cafe is always busy, it has super friendly and efficient staff and there’s plenty of room to enjoy a coffee, food and watch cats play.

    So agree with you on the need for a lighter or ‘lunch’ menu- and not just at this place. Sometimes you just need a sandwich. You know the type- just a simple ham sandwich or a small salad. I don’t see why we have to be loaded with some huge meal in the middle of the day. Especially if it’s going to cost over $20. I went to this cafe for the first time this week. Okay, I had the ‘lighter’ menu choice of a bacon and egg roll with coffee for $11. I still only ate a quarter of it and took the rest home for dinner.
    I did enjoy patting the cats though. The only rule I didn’t like was that you are not allowed to pick up the cats. As if I’d pick up a cat that didn’t want to be picked up! As if you can make a cat do anything it doesn’t want to do! I can understand it though- these poor cats would be sick of randoms coming in for a few minutes and putting their hands all over them.
    Shout down to the woman eating outside the cafe with her yappy dog. She put on her earphones and let the barking dog run up and down the outside windows which put all the cats on high alert, causing them to spit and glare or find hiding spots. Not very nice.
