ARE RESERVATIONS REQUIRED?
We don't REQUIRE reservations, but they are highly encouraged... especially on weekends! It is the only way to guarantee your spot!
CAN MY KIDS COME?
Kids ages 7+ are allowed in the cat lounge any time with adult supervision. Under 7? Little ones may come during our "Kitty Time" hours only, which are twice per month on Saturday morning. Reservations are required since this is a special event before hours.
DO I NEED TO FILL OUT A WAIVER?
Yes please! Your waiver is good for one calendar year, so if you do it once... you're good until January 1st of the new year. Each person in your party must complete a waiver, so please copy and paste the URL and send it along!

I'VE NEVER HEARD OF A CAT CAFE, HOW DOES IT WORK?
Charlotte's cat cafe... right in the middle of NoDa! We have lots of cats to hang with (don't bring your own, we have it covered!) while sipping on a latte, craft beer or glass of wine! Our cafe and "cat lounge" are separate! Our lounge is home to 12 adoptable cats with lots of cozy seating for our guests. The fee to enter the cat lounge is $12/hour or $8/half hour (must be 7+ to enter). Our cafe space is designated for check-ins, to grab a beverage, hang with friends or work/study... there is no fee to enjoy your time on the cafe side.
WHERE DO WE PARK?
Pay-to-Park on Yadkin Avenue behind our building. Free Street Parking. You can also skip driving and hop on the light rail! The stop is one block from Mac Tabby at the 36th Street Station.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO VISIT?
That depends on your vibe! The kitties are typically active early on, then sleep on and off the rest of the day, then perk up again late afternoon. We don't expect them to "perform" all day, so some visits may be different than others. Visit often! However, with 12 cats in our lounge, there are always a few playing around!
WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR CATS?
We work with a local rescue called Catering to Cats and Dogs. All of our cats are up to date on shots, spayed/neutered, micro-chipped and tested for feline leukemia. Best part is, they are ALL ADOPTABLE!
I FOUND A CAT, CAN YOU TAKE IT?
By law, we are not able to take in cats ourselves. Please contact our rescue group, Catering to Cats and Dogs. Feel free to email our rescue to see if they can help! If they are full, they will be able to provide additional information that may help.
ARE YOU WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE?
We are located on the second floor and sadly, we do not have wheelchair accessibility. Our building was constructed in 1927 and was not intended at that time for what it is used for today. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause.
WHAT KIND OF FOOD DO YOU SERVE?
We have cafe items such as coffees, espresso drinks, wine, beer and ciders. We also have small pastry items and cookies. Our full menu is listed in the menu page... But don't fret, NoDa is FULL of awesome places to grab a bite... all walk-able! A walk around NoDa is an experience in itself... plan a day out of your cat cafe visit, and hit up some local food establishments and take advantage of Instagram worthy art walls!
I LOVE MY CAT, CAN I BRING IT?
I am sure we would love your cat too, but please don't bring it! By law, we cannot allow him in... and then he would be sad, and we don't want to see your cat sad.
WHERE IS YOUR ENTRANCE ON N. DAVIDSON ST?
We are in the middle of NoDa, across the street from Cabo Fish Taco and Sabor. Our entrance to go upstairs is nestled between Rubys Gifts and Custom Jewelry. The door is always open! You will also see our street sign on the sidewalk.
