Located in the Wallingford neighborhood of Seattle, Seattle Meowtropolitan is Seattle’s first cat cafe.The friends I was visiting made a reservation for us to visit on a weekday at opening time. There were only a few other guests present, so there were plenty of cats to go around.
The cafe contains one room with a few tables where food and drinks can be purchased. It’s possible to sit in this section and watch the cats through a glass wall. A visit to the cat room costs $10 for 50 minutes, with one drink included in the entrance charge.
If you can’t get to Seattle, the cafe has a webcam on which you can watch the cats from 3 pm – 4 pm PST.
If you do make the trek, be sure to check out the Archie McPhee store that’s just down the block. You might want to pick up a dashboard cat buddha as a souvenir.
