We didn’t have reservations so we couldn’t actually visit at the time. The attitude and welcome of the hostess made it a definite NO to make a reservation for another time. Disappointing from all of the other fun friendly people we have met in Charleston.

If you're a cat lover, this place will thrill you! A wine and dessert bar with kitties lounging and playing everywhere. If you're an animal lover you'll be impressed to know that Pounce adopts out two cats a day on average. Great food and wine...More

Great place for the girls to visit with the kitties. The set up is great and the schedule seems to flow well. Some of the cats stayed out of the mix, as expected. No litter box smell despite four boxes in the main room. Everything...More

Unfortunately we do not have a parking lot, but there is plenty of metered parking in front of the cafe on Meeting Street as well as a few city lots and garages within 2 blocks!

You should. I think they allow limited walk-ins. Reservations are easy to make online.
