This 東區 cafe is so popular that even on a Monday afternoon, the only free seat was at the bar. While I was there, I heard they kept getting calls for reservations. It’s easy to see why they’re doing so well. This is the entrance:

According to the book, they just have one cat, the original Mr. Cat, known as 小羊 to his friends. But now Mr. Cat’s family has grown and there are four of them. Still, Mr. Cat seemed to know that this is his cafe and spent most of his time on the bar, eating and taking breaks to look over manager’s shoulder as he wrote down reservations.

This black cat is the smallest of them, maybe the baby of the ‘family’:

And Mr. Cat also has a beautiful silky, marbled tabby 小三 (really her name!)

The staff were friendly once I told them I could read the Chinese menu and I had a mocha frappuccino (NT$180+10% service charge, kind of expensive but worth it for the atmosphere). They also have sandwiches, waffles and specialty teas with fruit.

The fourth cat, 伴伴, wasn’t around at first, but eventually she appeared from behind the counter and then she came out to play.
