Bring a Sandwich. Maybe not Tuna



America’s first permanent cat cafe is now open at 2869 Broadway in Oakland, CA! 
The Cat Town Cafe is split into two rooms, the Cafe and the Cat Zone.
The Cat Zone is where:
We have between 6 - 20 free roaming cats who are available for adoption. Meaning, they are coming out of tiny cages of the shelter, and waiting to find a permanent home while here in our Cat Zone. 
We allow 14 people to enter every hour on the hour, this is to help limit the stress and over stimulation of our four legged friends.
Walk-ins are welcome, but we highly recommend that you make a Cat Zone Reservation for a $10 donation to Cat Town, especially on weekends! This will ensure your visiting time is available and support a great cause. 
You are welcome to bring cafe food and beverage into the Cat Zone, but please don’t bring your own cat!
Volunteers will be on hand to answer any questions you have about cats, adoptions, and cat related things.
Please note: 

Cats sleep a lot. They also hide a lot. This is natural and healthy. Our cats meet up to 140 people a day, 5 days a week. If you’re itching for play time, we recommend coming early for the 10AM and 11AM hours, when the cats are most active.
We are a non-profit rescue dedicated to the safety and well-being of our cats. Their comfort and safety is our first priority.
Our cafe is minimal, but awesome. We serve extremely good pour over coffee, locally made bagels and pastries, and have the friendliest employees you’ll ever meet. We have limited indoor and outdoor seating, plus viewing windows into the Cat Zone should we reach capacity.
We are closed Monday & Tuesday to acclimate new cats into the space and give our current residents some much deserved rest.


Cat Town is a non-profit cat rescue, that started in 2011 as a foster based rescue program. Since founding, we’ve helped get over 600 at-risk shelter cats out of the cages of Oakland Animal Services and into loving foster and permanent homes. The Cat Town Cafe is an expansion of our current rescue efforts, and will help us get many more cats out of the shelter and adopted!
The cafe cats are being adopted at a rate we never imagined and we are joyously overwhelmed by the interest, kind words, encouragement, press, and good cheer of our customers, volunteers, employees, and adopters. Thank you so much!
Cafe hours: 8 AM - 7 PM Wednesday through Sunday
Cat Zone hours: 10 AM - 7 PM (14 people are let in on the hour every hour)
Come see us at 2869 Broadway, Oakland, CA!
