Although not quite a cat cafe, this pasta restaurant has two cats and they also had a cat party in July when people brought in their own cats.  The cats are a bit shy but are cute and playful. 這間義大利麵餐廳有兩隻貓. 我還有看到他們七月有一個貓派對, 客人都帶貓. 店裡的貓有點害羞, 還是很可愛, 很活潑.

11995242_1155708517778870_1831694850_oThe menu has a wide variety of pasta dishes, all reasonably priced. I had a set meal with pepper chicken pasta with garlic and white wine sauce (NT$210) and my friend had grilled salmon pasta with cream sauce (NT$240). The sets came with garlic bread, soup and a drink. All the food was very good. 菜單有很多選擇, 都還滿便宜. 我點蒜辣雞麵, 我朋友點鮭魚麵. 套餐都有麵包, 湯, 飲料. 都很好吃.

The cats spend a lot of time in the back and may not let you pet them, but it’s a good restaurant and it’s fun to watch the cats play with each other when they come out. 貓常常在後面, 有時候不喜歡人摸牠們, 但是食物很好, 還有看到貓出現玩是很好玩.

This is a relatively new cat cafe that I discovered several months ago, but it has taken me this long to finally find it open. The sign above is what you see outside downstairs. If you look closely, it says the hours are 12:00-21:00, closed Mondays. This is not true. The first time I found it, it was morning, so I decided to come back another day during regular hours. I returned on a Wednesday around 1pm. There was a sign saying 包場中. I wasn’t quite sure what it meant so I rang the bell and someone answered and explained it to me. The whole place was booked, seems like a strange thing to do during regular business hours. I tried again a month or two later on a Tuesday afternoon. It was closed. Yesterday afternoon (Friday), I called first to see if they were open. They said the whole place was booked again until 6:30. I really don’t understand why people want to have private parties here on weekday afternoons. Finally, today I happened to be in the area, so I thought I’d check one more time. They were open! It wasn’t very busy, only a few other customers. 這是一間比較新的貓咖啡. 我現找到幾月前, 但是第一次是早上, 所他們沒開. 他們外面的牌子還有他們的名片說開業時間: 12:00-21:00, 週一休息, 但是這是不對. 我一次禮拜三下午來, 他們’包常中’. 一次禮拜二下午來, 他們就沒開. 昨天(禮拜五) 我不要浪費時間過去所以現打電話, 他們說包場中到6:30. 今天我在附近, 所以我在一次去看. 終於他們有開!

The design and decor are very cute. I especially like the way the the walls are painted. 他們的設計, 裝飾很可愛.

And these cute cat figurines:

They only have two cats. They aren’t afraid of people and are happy to be petted, but aren’t overly friendly either. This one looks like my cat 蹦跳. 他們只有兩隻貓. 牠們不怕人, 你可以摸牠們, 但是他們也沒有特別喜歡人. 這隻很像我的貓:

DSCN4498 DSCN4504

DSCN4511The black one stayed in its bed the whole time. 這隻黑色很喜歡他的床:

DSCN4499Their specialty is spaghetti. I got a set meal, spaghetti with pesto sauce and clams, the dessert of the day (blueberry cheesecake) and coffee (NT$309). The food and the coffee were very good. 他們的招牌是義大利麵. 我吃一個套餐:青醬義大利麵, 藍莓起司蛋糕, 美式咖啡 (NT$309). 都很好吃, 好喝的.

DSCN4506 DSCN4512

DSCN4514This cafe is nice if you’re lucky enough to be in the area when it’s open or perhaps if you want to book a party here. I wouldn’t make a special trip here without calling. And it’s also not a good place to work as they don’t have wi-fi. 如果你耀來這邊應該要現打電話看他們有沒有開. 還有他們沒有wi-fi, 所以不方便在這邊做工作.

This quaint cafe is decorated in the style of an old-fashioned country kitchen. They have lots of cute decorations, but the cats are kept in a separate area away from the tables. 這間可愛的咖啡館很有氣氛. 有很多可愛的裝飾, 但是貓在裡外一個房間.

The three cats are kept in this room. Make sure to lock the door after you go in with them; they know how to open it themselves! 這是貓的房間. 你進去要小心鎖門, 因為貓會自己開!

DSCN3262They have a variety of brunch, dessert and light meal options, coffee and tea, and juice drinks. I had a raspberry yogurt drink (NT$90), which was very good. 他們有很多早午餐, 點心,簡餐, 咖啡, 茶, 還有果汁. 我喝木莓酸奶(NT$90), 很好喝.

I was leaving the Songyan Eslite and wandering around just to see if there were any cat cafes around when I saw this place! Unfortunately, it was 4:00pm and it’s only open for lunch and dinner. Still, since I don’t go to this area very often, I decided to wait. And while waiting, I discovered Together & Forever, a great cat cafe. This restaurant turned out to be not so great, however. Look at this sign:我離開松菸誠品去逛一下看有沒有貓咖啡館, 我看到這間! 但是那時候是下午4點,還沒開.因為我很少來這附近我決定要等. 我在等的時候找到就是幸福, 一個很棒的貓咖啡館. 但是這間餐廳不是很好. 看下面的牌子:

DSCN1730Combined with the main sign, and also that their business card says they have cats, it seems reasonable to assume that there would be at least one cat here. But the waitress looked at me like I was crazy when I asked about the cat. She just said there wasn’t a cat there. So I asked if there ever was and how often and when it might be there. She looked a little annoyed, but asked someone else, who said it was there earlier but not now. He also didn’t seem very friendly or willing to volunteer any more information. Still, I decided to stay since there were at least some cat decorations to take pictures of. 看這兩個牌子會不會想一定會有貓? 我沒有看到. 我問店員, 她瞪我好像她覺得我很奇怪. 她貓不在. 所一我問貓什麼時候在?  是現在都沒有貓或是只是今天牠沒來? 她看起來有點不開心但是她問別人. 她也不太想跟我講話, 但是他說那天下午貓在, 但是今天牠不要回來. 我還是留下來因為牠們還有一些貓主題裝飾.

I ordered a pepperoni pizza (NT$170), which was ok. 我點儀式臘腸比薩 (NT$170), 還好.

DSCN1765 DSCN1774

The bathroom smelled very strongly of cat pee, though there was no litterbox in there. Maybe the cat had just peed all over the place and that’s why  no one wanted to talk about it. Anyway, I wouldn’t recommend this place. 廁所有很重貓尿的味道. 我想有可能貓剛剛亂尿尿, 所以沒有人想講貓的事. 不知道, 但是我不會推薦這家.

After running the Kenting Marathon, I went to this cat cafe in Kaohsiung before catching my train. With its cute decorations, reasonable prices and eight adorable cats, it’s definitely worth a visit. When I arrived, there were three cats in the window, and another joined them there later. 我跑完墾丁馬拉松, 我去這間貓咖啡館在高雄. 裝飾很可愛, 東西好吃不貴, 八隻漂亮的貓咪, 我當然會推薦這家. 我來的時候, 窗戶有三隻貓, 以後有四隻.

Other beautiful cats relaxed in other places around the cafe. They’re not at all afraid of people, but not particularly interested in them either.

還有其他可愛的貓咪在休息. 牠們都不認, 但是好像對人沒有興趣.

The walls are decorated with cat puzzles:

The menu has a variety of set meals including sandwiches, pasta and waffles. I had an original waffle and an iced Americano for NT$165. The waffle was delicious and they have lots of flavors to try, although some of them have to be special-ordered the day before, like the caramel and cream cheese that I wanted. 菜單有很多套餐, 有三明治, 義大利麵, 鬆餅. 我吃原味鬆餅, 合冰的美式咖啡, $NT165. 鬆餅很好吃. 他們有很多口味但是有些口味你需要前一天打電話定約.

DSCN1343 DSCN1341

When I was getting ready to leave, someone brought out a toy for the cats. They were so cute playing with it, I wished I could stay longer, but I had to hurry back to the train station. 我要離開的時候店員給貓玩具玩. 牠們很可愛我想留下來, 但是我要趕快去高鐵站.

This wasn’t in any cat cafe books. A friend found it by doing a search for places with cats around 尖石鄉. This is a large restaurant with beautiful gardens and a campground next to it. They have 12 cats in all, indoor/outdoor cats, so there are only a couple in the restaurant.

貓咖啡書沒有這間. 我朋友找到, 找尖石鄉什麼地方有貓. 這是一個很大的餐廳, 有很漂亮的花園, 旁邊有綠營. 他們有12隻貓, 但是大部分在外面.

Entry tickets to the park/garden area is NT$100. If you order from the restaurant, the ticket price is deducted from the bill.

公園/花園門票是NT$100, 但是在餐廳點餐可以扣掉那個錢.

DSCN0345A few cats wandered around the restaurant. They weren’t really interested in people, but seemed more interested in finding food.

餐廳裡有一些貓. 貓不想理人, 但是他們看到食物有興趣.

DSCN0348DSCN0349

DSCN0355The menu has a wide selection of options, and the food was ok. The atmosphere is what really makes it worth visiting though.

菜單有很多選擇. 我覺得還好, 但是這邊最好處是氣氛, 風景.

Minimum cost per person 每人最低消費: NT$130

Located on Yongkang Street, this cat cafe appears unremarkable among the other cafes and restaurants in the area. And it is. Except for having two nice cats who were asleep, it’s not really different from any other overpriced cafe in a popular shopping area. The menu is typical without much variety. An Americano is NT130, and since I’d just gone to the Cuckoo’s Nest, I didn’t order any coffee. I had a panini (NT$180) and water. 永康街有很多咖啡館,餐廳, 這間貓咖啡看起來沒有什麼特別. 真的沒有什麼特別. 好處時牠們有兩隻貓,都在睡覺. 除了貓以外,這一間比較無聊,有點太貴的咖啡廳. 菜單沒有什麼特別, 美式咖啡NT$130. 因為那天我剛去杜鵑窩, 我美有點咖啡. 我吃panini,喝水.

DSCN0122 DSCN0134

The sandwich was pretty good; it had plenty of cheese on it. This cafe is ok if you happen to be around Dongmen, but not really worth going out of the way for. 三明治還蠻好吃, 有很多起司. 如果你在東門, 這咖啡館還好, 但是我不會特別想去.

Here are the cats:
