Do you like cats? Do you like kittens? If you answered yes to either of those questions, then come check out Catmosphere Cafe located in Surry Hills. At Catmosphere Cafe you can enjoy your daily dose of caffeine alongside these adorable feline creatures! It operates on an appointment basis so make sure you call them beforehand to reserve a time slot so you don’t miss out on your chance to hang out with these furry friends. The cats tend to be more active in the morning (10am-12pm) and later in the evening (from 4pm onwards). The times in between are perfect for those who just want to chill, study in peace, or pull up a laptop and get some work done. A free serving of coffee is provided with both experiences.

Our recommendation:

  • Kitten Experience (30 minute stay) for $22
  • These little fellas are very playful, cuddly, and extremely mischievous. Don’t be surprised if you get your head stuck in twist when they start doing laps around you!
  • Cat Experience (1 hr stay) for $20
  • The adult cats are generally much calmer and more peaceful than their kitten counterparts, so they are perfect for those looking to destress and relax.
