Kids and I had a great time in this clean, comfortable cat cafe with cute, adoptable rescue cats. A perfect place to spend an hour or so. They partner with a cafe/bakery next door and have cat-themed cards and board games to play. Highly recommended...More

We enjoyed visiting the Meow Parlour. The cats are adorable, though I recommend visiting as soon as possible when they open(11a.m. on weekends, noon during the week.) Reservations at that time a must! We visited at 1p and already some cats were tired of attention....More

Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and
smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like
entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle
that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families
stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up
at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from
the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many
bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where
