I was just wandering around Gongguan in the alley that goes to the movie theater, when I saw some steps going up to a new cafe. Of course I had to check and see if it was perhaps a cat cafe…and it was! 我在公館逛逛, 在一個巷子裡電影遠很近, 我看到一間新的咖啡館. 我當然希望是貓咖啡, 我進去就看到貓!

This cat was waiting by the door when I came in. He wasn’t very interested in visitors but he was content to be petted by anyone who came up to him.

我看到這隻貓在門口旁邊. 牠對客人沒有興趣, 但是牠會讓人摸牠.

Later, he moved over here to take a nap.

The cafe has a quiet, cozy atmosphere with decorations with cats on them as well as things for cats, like this record player scratching pad. 這間咖啡館的氣氛很好, 他們有貓主題裝飾還有貓用品, 像這個電唱機.

They also have a kitten! It was asleep at first, but later it came out to play, going from table to table to visit customers. 他們還有一隻小貓! 我剛來牠在睡覺, 然後牠醒來玩. 牠來每一個客人的桌子打招呼.

Susan has already written about ‘Fat Cat Story’, but Tainan has another fat cat cafe – Fat Cat Deli!

The cafe is located on Xin Yi Street, a quiet street full of old buildings, many of which have been converted into shops and restaurants. Fat Cat Deli is at the far end of the street near a small temple.

FC Deli 2As you walk past, you may feel there are eyes upon you.

This cat occupies a place of pride on the owner’s record player, and is quite happy to be stroked while you order your coffee.

FC Deli 4

The cafe occupies three main areas: the first is the bar, where you order.

The owners are big music fans and have integrated a lot of their interests in the cafe decor. The bar faces a ‘listening wall’ where you can sample a huge range of CDs.

FC Deli 6An arched doorway leads to the second area, which is the seating area. We chose this cozy corner that looks out onto the street.

FC Deli 7

The detailed menu offers many different kinds of coffee, as well as sandwiches, biscuits and cakes. Note the Wifi password!

The third area leads off from the bar up an extremely narrow staircase. Here, you will find a sunlit room with two more cats.

I couldn’t get a good picture of the room, but it has comfortable seating for about 5 people, as well a deck, a back balcony and a large window. It’s well worth going up to take a look, not only to see the other cats, but also to get an idea of traditional Tainan housing.

These two cats were also very friendly and happy to be stroked.

The owners have placed a few signs around the cafe, gently encouraging you to order more drinks if you feel like it.

FC Deli 11Overall, a great place to spend a relaxing afternoon.
