I am a grandmother and bought tickets for my daughter and two grandchildren online. When we got there my daughter had to go to the bathroom and I asked the staff if the kids can go in without her. The staff member said an adult had to be with the so I asked if I coukd go in with them until my daughter comes back She said it was no problem, but when my daughter came back she said she had to pay $20 to go in and we are not allowed to swap. I left the cat area when I saw my daughter and was shocked to hear that she wasnt allowed in. We left early to go somewhere else for lunch and drinks as we didnt want to support them any further. The staff was very unprofessional and discussed how few people visited the cafe during the holidays and how they had to let some staff go. Cats were fabulous and kids enjoyed them but because of this bad experience and treatment and although we live around the corner we will never go there again.

Not an inviting cafe. The lady who "welcomed" us was quite aggressive, loud and definitely not welcoming to her customers and needs some training in customer service. Unknown to us the cafe has 25 minute sessions for time with the beautiful cats, my daughter and I obviously arrived mid session, we're told the price per 25 minutes with no mention that the current session was well under way. After about 15 minutes in with the cats we were yelled at and told along with everyone else that our time was over! If you're going to attend this cafe my suggestion would be to make sure you turn up on the half hour or perhaps make a booking if possible or at least clarify if your 25minutes has already started!
The cats are beautiful and I feel sorry that they have such an unfriendly owner!

Really sad to get this as we don’t believe all these accusations. Our staff go above and beyond each day. Your statements about our sessions is inaccurate too as we allow leak ins at any time. So if you arrive at 10am and want 25 mins your session will go to 10:25am. Half sessions are in scheduled slots but availability, so what our staff is doing is correct. The amount of amazing feedback we get, justifies what a great job we do, unfortunately people find things to complain about and we can’t please everyone, although we do try.

I'm so glad that cat cafes have gone global! If you love cats but can't have one at home, this place is a must-visit if you're in the area.
I showed up without a booking, on a winter weekday, I was able to walk right in.

Cats were great and well looked after. But the premises were small and somewhat claustrophobic both for the visitors and the cats. There seemed to be another section attached to the main cat cafe where if you paid extra you could spend a longer time with four cats of your choice. Great pity this section was not added to the cat cafe to make a far bigger area. The cats and visitors deserve a larger area!

So, I’m a cat and dog lover and when I saw this place just had to go. As the name suggests it’s a cafe, serving coffee, food, cold drinks and beers, all of which you can take into the ‘cat room’ if you like.
$12 for 25 minutes to cuddle, pat and pretty much spoil all the kitties, all of whom are well behaved and just soak up the attention. There is also a VIP room where, for an extra cost you have a private room with your choice of up to four kitties to spoil. An absolute must for cat lovers

This is a fabulous place if you like cats. You can sit with them and enjoy a cuppa, watch their antics feed them. Had a lovely time. Would recommend to all.

Visited today and had an amazing time. The room was quiet, so the cats were happy to lay around and get attention. They were relaxed and you could tell they were well looked after.

The staff member was great and made the whole experience much more enjoyable.

Highly recommended a visit.

On holiday from Sydney and dropped in for a coffee and to visit our feline friends. We have stopped in at the Crazy Cat café numerous times of previous family holidays and it was nice to see some familiar faces, but also meet some new friends. Staff are always friendly and helpful and cats are well cared for and happy, plus the coffee is good. Highly recommend and we will be back.

This place is all about cats. Period. Don't go there expecting glamour or being put at the center of attention. If you aren't a cat, then bad luck for you! This place is a must visit if you are a cat lover. There are 16 or so kitties there at the moment - all different breeds. But as all cats do, they only engage if they want to, so for some cats you just have to be satisfied to watch them sleep and give them caresses. Its important to support small local businesses, especially as the pandemic isn't going anywhere, so go and have a kitty cuddle then follow up with a beer and pizza at another local. PS the quality of the coffee at the kitty cafe was a nice surprise :)
