Bangkok is home to a plethora of animal cafes which house all kinds of animals; from massive human-sized dogs to exotic fennec foxes, this place is an absolute animal paradise for animal lovers.
Feline lovers will be glad to know that Bangkok has a really solid cat cafe called Caturday Cat Café that is brimming with adorable, fluffy kitties of all shapes and sizes. With its convenient location near BTS station Ratchathewi, cat lovers have no excuse to not visit this cat heaven.
Caturday Cat Café is not just filled with fluffy feline friends; it is also a pretty aesthetic café with many great Instagram-worthy spots for photos.
Here, the café walls are lined with paintings of cats, murals of cats as well as cat memorabilia. A massive climbing post also sits in the middle of the café and here you can see cats either scooting up or down it or taking a nap.
For the entrance fee, all you need to do is purchase a drink or food item (per pax) from them and you can stay there for as long as you want. We really appreciate this flexibility as a number of animal cafés in Bangkok usually set time limits for their visitors.
We ordered ourselves a Thai-Tea Crepe Cake with Thai Tea Sauce (138 baht) and a Hot Chocolate (118 baht) for the entrance fee.
We honestly were not expecting much from the Thai-Tea Crepe Cake with Thai Tea Sauce and were pleasantly surprised by how it turned out. Here, delicate crepes are carefully layered with a creamy and concentrated Thai tea filling that tasted as good as the actual drink. While the Thai tea flavour was incredibly rich, we like how the flavours were not cloying and did not go too heavy on the palate.
The hot chocolate, on the other hand, was a tad bit too milky for our liking as we prefer ours to be more on the chocolatey side. Nonetheless, it still was a satisfying cup of hot chocolate and it was nice to sip on it as we watched the cats play.
Caturday has cats of all shapes, colours and breeds and we found ourselves cooing over each and every one of them.
We ended up staying here for a solid 2-hours but how long you want to stay is entirely up to you. Some visitors even brought their laptops to do their work amongst the cats which we thought was a pretty good idea too.
All in all, a highly-recommended spot to visit in Bangkok the next time you are there, especially if you love cats!
