CIMG0502 Cat. Art. Home

Address: 新北市永和區博愛街5號

Hours: weekdays 13:30-22:00, weekends 12:00-22:00

Minimum cost per person: weekday entry NT$150, weekend entry NT$200, drinks around NT$150




The outside of this cafe, located on the tree-lined, brick paved 博愛街looks inviting. Customers remove their shoes at the door and have to have their hands sprayed with disinfectant on entering. This would lead one to believe that the cafe is a clean place; however, upon entering, the smell of cat urine is overpowering. Although this cafe only has 6-7 cats, it smells almost as bad as Minimal.

All the tables are low, and people sit on cushions on the floor with the cats.


The cats are friendly and healthy looking.


One of them was quite interested in my gym bag.


Still, the smell was too unappetizing. And even though the outside of the store doesn’t say it and the book doesn’t mention it, it costs NT$150 on weekdays and NT$200 on weekends just to sit there and not eat or drink anything. So I decided it wasn’t worth it to stay there.
