Cat Cafe Guide for Philadelphia & Beyond

Cat Cafes are officially hitting Philadelphia, I love that this new trend finally has a home in my home city, Philadelphia. Honestly, who wouldn’t want to spend an afternoon drinking coffee while surrounded by cute, adoptable cuddly cats? I’ve compiled a list of all the cat cafes available in Philadelphia and surrounding areas such as Doylestown, Norwood & the Lehigh Valley. If you ever need a mental pick-me-up, a cat cafe seems like the perfect place to pass the time.  

If your business is listed in the Cat Cafes in Philadelphia & Surrounding Areas blog, please get in touch with me for any necessary updates/ edits.
