Atlanta’s first cat cafe is ready for business! Earlier this week Java Cats Cafe officially opened its doors at 415 Memorial Drive SE, Suite C, in Grant Park. Patrons can now enjoy good quality coffee (provided by Atlanta’s own Ebrik Coffee Room), light snacks, and the company of 14 adoptable felines all in one spot. Sounds pretty purr-fect if you ask us!
The kitties at Java Cats all come from PAWS Atlanta, Georgia’s oldest no-kill shelter for cats and dogs, and are available for adoption, or simply a snuggle-filled coffee break in a comfortable space—whatever fits your feline fancy.
“Java Cats offers the cats an amazing opportunity to live in a customized cat paradise while being loved on every day, allowing their personalities to shine, until they find their furever home!” the cafe’s website reads.
In addition to homeless cats, the cafe also works to improve the lives of Atlanta’s homeless people. The Gathering, an Atlanta Mission project that equips homeless individuals with culinary skills, provides the cafe’s box lunches and prepackaged snacks.
Due to cafe’s popularity, reservations are recommended, although not necessary. You can book your own hour-long session with the cafe’s resident furballs on Java Cats’ website.
