Our cat café is a nonprofit cat rescue. Our cat lounge plus a café promotes cat and kitten adoption by getting cats out of the shelter environment and into a fun and entertaining environment for our customers and cat residents. We serve local roasted coffee, smoothies, beer, wine and some delicious pastries in an amazing café vibe. Our café cats are skilled furry therapists.

Obviously healthy cats. $140 adoption fee which is nothing considering they're spayed/neutered, up to date on shots, and already very socialized. They let you know which cats might be a little spicy (and the one they warned me about was still friendly lol). Boba and macaroons were great too!

The Frisky Cat Cafe is the perfect win win for both cats and humans. The cats are able to enjoy a home like place and get tons of socialization so they are just the most adoptable cats while they wait for their forever home. The cats are well taken care of, they look healthy and have the shiniest coats. The staff is friendly, kind, and answers any questions you may have. Very cute cats, great experience if you want to just hang out with some cats and enjoy some coffee.

It was our first adoption and I can not describe how happy we were with the whole process. Every each of those persons are graces of god. Linda and Carla are very kind hearted and sincere. Valentino and Valentine are the most awesome members of our family now. We can't be thankful enough. Frisky Cat Cafe deserves all the good things and every donation coming its way.

Lovely cafe run by wonderful people who truly love cats! My family chose this cat cafe over others because of how spacious it is, so many friendly kitties to meet even if some are napping. The kitten room was a fun unexpected surprise we didn’t know about until we arrived! We also got some coffee while we were there, and it was delicious. Can’t recommend enough!

Frisky Cat Cafe in St Augustine FL is such a joy. It is full of some lovely and playful kitties patiently waiting for loving homes. It is a comfy and clean environment where lots of folks pay to spend an hour or more in the cat lounge and also coffee, tea, and treats are available too. Some folks come to just be immersed in the kitty vibe and others find their furever friend in a peaceful and fun environment. The $10 fee for the immersion experience supports the cats care there and also uplifts your spirit. In the four years they have been open they have placed 1400 cats in homes. Worth a visit even if you are not in the market for a new pet. I have visited twice so far.

First time at a cat cafe! This was amazing! Ten dollars for one hour with cats, amazing. Rules were clear and easy to follow. Staff were very friendly. I wish I could have adopted a cat, but I’ll donate to visit any time.

What is a cat café?

Our café is a nonprofit cat rescue.  We have added café and cat lounge to create cat experience for all to enjoy, both humans and felines alike.

Our cat lounge filled with furry kitty residents waiting for you to meet or adopt them.  Our $10 donation per person per hour gives you a friendly cat experience while funding our cozy environment plus providing all of the medical care for the cat residents. This unique therapeutic experience is for both the cat lover and the kitties. It sustains a stimulating and comfortable home for lovable homeless cats until they are adopted . Without your donation, we just could not save nearly as many animals.

The café is a separate space from the cat lounge.  You may spend time in our cat lounge with your treats and beverages or have complete view of our playful resident cats from the café window.
