Catch a cappuccino with a few of your favourite furry friends.
This little red dot we call home has so much to offer, albeit some things are a little quirky (fish head curry for breakfast is totally acceptable, by the way), but that’s kind of why we love The Lion City. Trading in a roar for a meow, however, we’ve found these cute, cuddly cafés that’ll have you ordering your favourite beverage with a side of… cat? Yup. Double shot with a dish of full fat cream for the furry mate at your ankles. Embrace Singers’ alternative dining scene and grab a tea-break with a tabby and curl up with kitten at these four cat cafés that you’re bound to love. I could seriously bust these out all day…
As founders of the first cat cafe in Singapore, Sue and Sam were both inspired by the joy and relaxation that cats bring to lives. While most cat cafés usually feature pedigree cats, Sam and Sue made a decision to only adopt cats for Neko No Niwa. Their message to people? Adopt, don’t buy! With such a humble vision and cute cats to boot, how can we not love this spot?
How much:$12 per hour and $5 for every half hour there after

Located in the heart of the Kampong Glam district, Meomi Cat Cafe is a quaint and intimate shophouse cafe that houses seven cats. A small number compared to the other cafés, this just means that you’ll get to spend more time with each of the cats there! And we even heard that the adorable name of the café is taken from the owners’ cats Meow Meow and Mimi!
