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:

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.

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.

CIMG0913 Katze Cafe

Address: 臺北市信義區基隆路一段147巷25號 (Near City Hall MRT exit 1)

Hours: 10:00-22:00

Minimum cost per person: NT$80, tea

As I was walking to Cafe No. 218, I happened to see this place. It isn’t in the book, but it’s even more of a cat cafe than the other one. It has four cats, kept in a separate glass room.

The cafe itself was clean enough, but the cats’ room was smelly. The door was shut though so customers wouldn’t smell it unless they walked in, but I felt a little sorry for the cats. Three of the cats just wanted to sleep, but one of them was playful.

The cheapest item on the menu is tea for NT$80. I had an oreo frappuccino for NT$130. They also have a wide variety of pasta dishes for NT$150 each. Although this is a nice, reasonably priced cat cafe, Bibi was my favorite cat of the day and I’d rather go back to Cafe No. 218.

But the cats at this one do each have their own business card:
