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.

Minimum cost per person 每人最低消費: NT$150

 

The cats in this Taichung café are Munchkin/English shorthair mixes, and they look adorable. Some are friendly and some are a bit skittish. 這間台中咖啡的貓是萌英國短毛貓, 牠們腿很短很可愛. 一些喜歡人, 一些怕人.

Also, unfortunately some of them don’t use the litterbox. I smelled a strong odor when I went in, and while I was there, I saw one pee on the floor and no one cleaned it up. I ordered beer in a bottle (NT$150+10% service charge), since that seemed like a clean choice. They have a good variety of beers available. They also have coffee, tea and set meals. It’s nice to see the cats there, but with the smell, I didn’t have much appetite for food or drink.  還有一些不用貓砂盆. 我進去聞到很重貓尿味道. 我也看到一隻尿在地板沒有人清理. 我點一瓶啤酒(NT$150+10%服務費)因為好像最乾淨的選擇. 他們有很多種啤酒. 還有咖啡, 茶, 套餐. 貓很可愛, 但是有這個臭味, 我不想吃喝東西.

This Taichung cat café has about ten friendly cats. It’s clean and bright and the cats have lots of room to climb and play. 這間台中貓咖啡有大概十隻很親人的貓. 很乾淨又很亮, 貓有很多空間可以玩.

It’s quite busy and seems to be popular with families and groups of friends. They offer the usual coffees, teas, desserts and light meal options. I had an apple tart (NT$70) and an Americano (NT$80).

DSCN7609

This is a nice café and I’m impressed with how clean they keep it with the number of cats. It’s not quite as unique as some of my favorites, but it’s worth a visit if you’re in the area.  客人很多, 好像家庭, 朋友團都喜歡. 他們有咖啡,茶, 甜點, 間餐. 我吃過蘋果塔(NT$70)喝美式咖啡(NT$80). 我覺得這間很好, 有很多貓還是很乾淨. 沒有特色, 但是在附近, 很值得去.

Address: 台中市西區向上路106號

Hours: 10:00-22:00

 

 

 

 

This cafe is more robot-themed than cat-themed, but they do have three fat cats, though I only saw one. Due to limited time and because it was crowded, I didn’t actually eat or drink anything here, but they were nice enough to let me take pictures. It’s very popular and probably worth another visit. 這間比較有機器人主題, 但是他們有三隻貓. 我只有看到一隻很胖的貓. 因為我的時間不夠, 還有人很多, 我沒有吃喝東西. 他們還是讓我拍照. 下一次一定要回來.

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!

The menu has a wide selection of coffees and teas at quite low prices. An Americano is just NT$40. I had their specialty blend which is NT$60. They also have more gourmet varieties for up to NT$280. They also have sandwiches and waffles. 菜單有很多種咖啡,茶, 都還瞞便宜. 美式咖啡只要$40. 我喝特濃金牌$60. 他們還有三明治, 鬆餅.

DSCN3245

The cats are in a separate room. There are two of them–the Scottish Fold who is very friendly and is even happy to be picked up, and a grumpy gray tabby which supposedly bites. Maybe he’s jealous that he isn’t the star of the cafe. He’s still a handsome cat. 貓在裡外一個房間. 有兩隻–一隻蘇格蘭貓,很喜歡人摸牠, 抱牠, 還有一隻比較兇的灰色貓, 會咬人. 牠可能不爽因為牠不是店裡的名星. 但是牠還是很帥.
