Hours 營業時間: 7:00-22:30

Minimum cost per person 每人最低消費: VND45,000 (about $2)

 

This dog cafe has about 25 friendly dogs on two floors. When I first went in, they showed me into the room on the first floor. It’s open in the center for the dogs to run around and has benches around the walls for people to sit on and shelves for them to put drinks. I ordered an iced tea and went to play with the dogs. 這間狗咖啡有大概25隻很可愛的狗, 有兩樓. 我剛進去, 店員帶我去一樓的房間. 中間失控的, 狗可以玩. 有長椅子客人可以坐還有架子可以放杯子. 我點冰紅茶, 繼續跟狗玩.

They had a Chinese Crested dog, a rare hairless breed that I’d only seen pictures of before. It was very sweet and friendly, and it soon curled up on my lap. 他們有一隻很特別的無毛狗,中過冠毛犬. 牠很可愛, 很喜歡人. 牠快來坐在我身上.

After a while, the staff asked if I wanted to go to the second floor. The second floor had even more dogs than the first, mostly large ones. 晚一點, 店員說我可以去二樓. 二樓有更多狗, 還有比較大的狗.

They were all beautiful, and I especially liked the big husky. This isn’t the kind of cafe where one could work or quietly sip a coffee, but it’s a great place to see and play with lots of different kinds of dogs. 多很漂亮, 我很喜歡一隻很大的哈士奇. 這種咖啡不適合工作, 安靜喝咖啡, 但是一個很好的地方跟很多不一樣的狗玩.

Minimum cost per person 每人最低消費: VND 45,000 (about $2)

 

When I took a trip to Vietnam, of course I had to see if they had cat cafes. I thought it was unlikely, but to my surprise, they had a few! This cafe has three floors, with the first floor being a Japanese restaurant, the second a cat cafe and the third a dog cafe (not much to the dog cafe, just a room with three little dogs). The cat cafe has 19 adorable, friendly cats.

我剛去越南, 我一定要看他們有沒有貓咖啡. 我想應該沒有, 但是我找到幾間! 這間有三樓: 一樓是日式餐廳, 二樓是貓咖啡, 三樓是狗咖啡 (狗咖啡其實沒有什麼, 只是一個空間有三隻小狗) 貓咖啡有19很可愛的貓咪.

One cat sat on my table. They told me his name was ‘dog’ in Vietnamese because he acts like a dog. I ordered an avocado smoothie (VND 60,000) and that was very good. 一隻貓坐在我桌子上. 店員說他的名字是’狗’應為牠個性像狗. 我點一個鱷梨冰沙.

The cafe seemed very clean and there were lots of places for the cats to play. It did have a bit of a smell, but the staff were in the process of cleaning. 咖啡裡面看起來很乾淨, 有很多地方貓可以玩. 有一點貓尿味道, 但是店員一直在清理.

They had a couple of kittens that were a few months old and some very tiny ones that were still with their mother. 他們有兩個小貓, 還有一些剛出生的小貓跟他們的媽媽在一起.

This was a very nice cafe and it seems like the staff really care about the cats. Here are more pictures of the cats我很喜歡這間,好像店員很關心貓:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Top Ten Taiwan Cat Cafes 台灣最佳十間貓咖啡

6 Mar

I have now been to nearly every cat cafe in Taiwan, about 80 in all. Out of all of these, here are my top 10 favorites. In my opinion, the best cat cafes have happy, healthy cats (whether it’s one cat or ten), are clean, have a good atmosphere, creative design and reasonably good drinks and food.

我已經去過大部分的台灣貓咖啡, 大概八十間. 我覺得這十間是最佳的. 我想最棒的貓咖啡有開心健康的貓 (不管有幾隻), 是乾淨的, 有好的氣氛, 創作的設計, 還有好吃好喝的東西.

  1. 小貓花園 (Cafe Cats and Dog) This is the original cat cafe, opened in 1998. They have about 12 cats and now 3 dogs, friendly staff and an extensive menu. 這是台灣最老的貓咖啡, 1998開業. 他們有十幾隻貓三隻狗, 友善的店員, 菜單有很多選擇.

     

     

  2. Cat Lair 六號貓洞 (Taichung 台中) I love this cafe even though I’ve only been there twice since it’s in Taichung. There are 5-10 cats there at a time, all happy and more or less friendly. With the tree branches around the doorway, it feels like a secret hideaway in a forest even though it’s in the middle of the city. The cats are so friendly and happy, and the owner is nice to talk to and very obviously enjoys her job. It’s a great place to relax; one could easily spend a few hours here and hardly notice the passing time.  我很喜歡這間; 我只去過兩次因為在台中. 有5-10貓, 都看起來很開心. 我很喜歡這間環境, 我覺得名字很適合. 門口有很大的樹枝, 感覺像森林裡的小洞. 貓都很開心很放鬆. 還有老闆很熱情還有很明顯愛她的工作. 是一個好地方放鬆, 可以坐這裡好幾個小時.

  3. Mask Cat 貓裝 I’ve been to this cafe more times than any others. They have three very friendly cats who will sit on people’s laps, cute decorations, and a quiet atmosphere for working. 我最常去這間咖啡. 他們有三隻很可愛的貓,會坐在人身上, 可愛的裝飾, 還有安靜的環境所以可以工作.
  4. Collection for Friends 私藏不藏私 This cafe only has one cat, Money, but the cat is so cute and the atmosphere, decorations and food are so good, it still makes the list as one of the best. 這間只有一隻貓, Money, 但是牠很可愛, 還有環境, 裝飾, 食物都非常好所以我覺得是很好的貓咖啡.
  5. Genki Cats 元氣貓主題餐廳 This cafe is home to about 20 beautiful Maine Coon cats. Since so many stray cats need homes, I usually prefer cafes with mixed breeds but these cats are so friendly and happy, I’ll make an exception with this one. They’ve moved since I first wrote about them. I updated the address in the original post. They also now serve full, Japanese style meals in the same room as the cats rather than shaved ice in a separate room. 者間有大概20隻很漂亮的緬因貓. 因為很多流浪貓需要一個好家, 我平常喜歡有領養流浪貓的咖啡館. 但是這些貓非常開心非常親人所以我還是很喜歡這間. 他們有搬家. 我已經改好地址在原本的post. 他們現在有日式料理, 可以吃在貓區.
  6. Cafe Fima 菲瑪咖啡 This cafe also just has one cat, but she’s really the star of the cafe and even has her own business card. It also has a great atmosphere and high quality coffee. 這間只有一隻貓, 但是她是店裡的明星. 她有自己的名片. 氣氛很好還有咖啡特別好喝.
  7. Spring Day Pet Cafe 春日寵物咖啡 This pet cafe has 4-6 cats and about four dogs. They have one of the most amazing cats I’ve ever seen–she can do tricks on command! 這間有4-6隻貓,四隻狗. 他們有一隻很奇妙的貓, 她會做特技跟狗一樣!
  8.  Cafe 218 小猴子咖啡 This cafe has two fluffy Persian cats that the owner adopted. It’s a small place near Taipei 101. The cats are adorable to watch, the owner is very friendly and the coffee is delicious. 這間有兩隻伯斯貓, 老闆領養的. 是一個小間在101附近. 老闆很友善, 貓很可愛, 咖啡很好喝.
  9. 品客 (Classic) This Shida cafe has three friendly cats and occasionally a Corgi. It has a convenient location, good food and nice atmosphere. 這間師大咖啡有三隻可愛的貓還有偶爾一隻柯基犬. 環境很方便, 食物好吃, 氣氛很好.
  10. Minou Minou This Gongguan cafe has two adorable cats and very cute decorations. 弟寶,who was a kitten when I first saw him, is the friendliest, but the other cat looks sleepy and content. They have a great brunch menu. 這間公館咖啡有兩隻很可愛的貓還有很可愛的裝飾. 弟寶, 最年輕的貓比較會靠近人, 但是裡外隻野看起來很開心在睡覺. 菜單有很多好吃的早午餐.

A friend brought me to this Banqiao pet cafe. They’re a bit more dog-focused in that people bring their dogs there and the cafe’s own dogs are out in the dining area while the cats are shut in a separate area. But they do have lots of adorable cats and the main cafe dog, Hook, is very sweet. 一個朋友帶我去這間寵物咖啡在板橋. 他們比較像狗咖啡因為人會帶自己的狗, 還有用餐區有狗. 貓都關在裡外區. 但是貓還是很可愛, 還有狗店長Hook也非常可愛.

Hook was a stray and he was very thin and weak when they found him, so they named him Hook in hopes that he would be tough someday. He did become beautiful and healthy, but his gentle personality is nothing like the legendary villain’s. Hook以前是流浪狗. 老闆開始養他的時候, 他很瘦,很弱. 他們希望他會兇一點, 所以叫他’Hook’. 他變成很漂亮,很健康, 但是他很溫柔, 一點都不兇.

The cats are in an enclosed area and can be seen through the glass. Some are temporary residents of the pet hotel and others are ones that the cafe owners have decided to adopt or are putting up for adoption. 貓都關在貓區. 一些住在寵物旅館, 大部分是店員領養的或許要給人領養.

They had two very young kittens that they had rescued and were thinking of putting up for adoption, but they’ve decided they are probably going to keep them. 有兩隻很小貓. 店員本來要找人領養, 現在他們可能想自己養.

DSCN5294 DSCN5298

There are lots of cute decorations around, some cat and dog-related and other just interesting, like this collection of Mr Potatoheads有很多可愛的裝飾,一些關於寵物, 一些只是有趣:

DSCN5267

DSCN5284The menu has a good variety of set meals. I had chicken meatballs and rice that came with black tea (NT$240). I didn’t notice it on the menu but later saw they had cat beer on display. 菜單有好幾個套餐. 我點雞肉,蘑菇番茄反, 還有紅茶 (NT$240). 我在菜單沒看到, 以後看他們也有貓啤酒.

DSCN5282DSCN5274

This is another one of the cafe’s dogs who was cute and friendly. 這隻狗也是他們的.

DSCN5318 DSCN5311

Some customers brought their own dog and it pooped on the floor. At least they did clean up after it quickly. Customers’ dogs are also required to wear diapers to prevent some ‘accidents’. (Below is just an example of the diaper from a dog in the downstairs pet hotel area). 客人有帶狗, 狗大便在地下. 但是他們很快清理. 客人的狗都需要帶尿布. 下面是一隻狗在寵物飯店區.

DSCN5280

This is a nice cafe and the pet hotel looks good clean, lots of space for the dogs and very clean. 我喜歡這間咖啡館, 寵物飯店業看起來很好, 很乾淨,狗有很大的空間.

Address: 台北市中山區華陰街24巷3弄7號 (Taipei Main Station, exit R1)

Phone 電話: 02-2523-0533

Hours: Tuesday-Sunday 週二-天: 11:00-21:00, Closed Mondays 週一公休

Minimum cost per person: NT$100

This cafe just opened this month. It isn’t exactly a cat cafe, but they will have cats sometimes. They’re still worth visiting because of what they do for stray animals. The cafe is located in a traditional old house near Taipei Main Station. The owners’ grandmother left them the house and she had always helped stray animals, so they wanted to continue her work. They will temporarily take in stray animals and customers can adopt them. We were greeted by the dog waiter, the only permanent resident. 這間這個月剛開業. 不算貓咖啡但是他們偶爾會有貓. 我覺得來這邊值得因為他們幫助流浪貓. 在台北車站附近, 這間是在一個古老的房子. 老闆的奶奶以前住在這裡, 都很照顧流浪動物. 她去世以後老闆想開這間, 繼續幫流浪動物. 他們在餐廳會有一些流浪動物, 客人可以領養. 他們還有一隻狗一直留在這裡, 他是一個很可愛的服務員.

DSCN5207They did have a cat, but it had just been adopted that day. With the cafe’s popularity, it seems that pets are being adopted quickly, which is great. The cafe is very busy and reservations are recommended.  The furniture is old-fashioned, in keeping with the style of the building. 他們有一隻貓, 但是我們來的時候, 貓已經被領養的. 因為這間最近很流行, 好像動物很快被領養的, 這是很好事. 客人很多, 所以限訂位比較好. 店裡的設計都很古老.

The menu is very cute and includes the story of how the cafe started. There’s also a page where you can order dog food. 3% of all profit from the cafe goes to help stray animals. I had a ‘burrito’, really more of a wrap sandwich, that came with salad, fries and black tea (NT$240). It was pretty good. The menu is simple, with only a few meal and drink options. This is a nice place to visit and a good way to help stray animals. 菜單很可愛. 裡面有他們的故事. 人還是可以點狗飼料. 3% 的消費他們都捐給流浪動物. 我點墨西哥卷, 有薯條沙拉, 還有紅茶 (NT$240). 菜單很簡單, 沒有痕都選擇. 這間的環境很好, 還有區這裡可以幫流浪動物.
