The Details

The Cafe Meow is one space composed of two separate areas: the coffee shop and the cat lounge.

The cafe is similar to other small coffee shops, providing a comfortable and cozy environment. We serve coffee, tea, alongside baked goods from local bakeries. See our cafe page to learn more about our partners.

The cat lounge is where The Cafe Meow offers its unique experience that has never been seen before in Minneapolis. This space houses rescue cats to come and visit with. All cats will be available for adoption through local rescues. Patrons pay a cover fee for a set amount of time spent in the cat lounge. This fee helps pay for the food, litter and employees.

We hope you come visit with the cats of The Cafe Meow.

We currently offer:
1. Cat lounge hours (Regular slots available for reservations below or you can walk-in and ask about availability. $10 purr-person)
2. Yoga With Cats (2 – 3 classes each month. Reservations ONLY. $20 purr-hour plus includes large tea to-go.)
3. Happy Hour (For April every Tuesday though Thursday we will offer 15 minute cat slots for $3. No reservations available. While supplies last.)
