Overview

Is there a better way to spend your time than in a cozy coffeehouse in the presence of a big furry feline friend? Definitely not! In our cafe you will find 10 lovely cats, living in the catcafe; a comfy cafe where you can relax and enjoy your coffee or tea with a cat by your side. Also the best place to get some lovely cakes, homemade lemonade, lunch or dinner, at only 1 minute away from the Grote Markt in the city center.

The café has 10 quirky cats and a witty intro letter to each and everyone of these lovable fluffs. Don't expect the coziest cuddlers though, because these guys are just going about doing their things. (Only if you're lucky, Joosje might become your lap warmer)....More

Very original idea for a cafe and a noble thing to adopt a homeless animals. Not everyone respects the clearly stated house rules, especially kids, but that speaks about the guests' ignorance of cat's nature more than the crew's neglectance. A cosy interior styled for...More

You must book before hand as the cafe only allows a small number of visitors at a time. The website is easy to use to do this. The cafe is near the main square. We went in the evening for a coffee and toastie. We...More
