Blue Cat Cafe

It was pure luck that I landed in Blue Cat Cafe. A friend and I stumbled on it while walking home to our Airbnb late at night during a trip to Austin. Of course I insisted it be our first stop the next morning.

The cafe was started with funds from a Kickstarter campaign and sports both good food and creative decor. Yes, it’s a bit over the top cat-crazy, but in a good way. In typical Austin style, the food comes from a food truck and includes a variety of vegan Tex-Mex dishes. Coffee drinks are also all vegan. Visitors order outside, and servers bring everything in when it’s ready. It’s also possible to eat out in the courtyard.

Some of the cats are adoptable, while others are permanent residents. A three-collar system identifies the status of each cat. Those with green collars are in need of homes. A red collar indicates that a cat is in the process of being adopted. The remaining cats are permanent residents.
