Do you like cats, coffee and cake?
Bournemouth has officially got its own Cat Café called Pause.
So what’s it like?
I had the opportunity to visit Pause Cat Café on its soft launch day and was welcomed by friendly staff and two adorable, very playful cats on the main floor. I had a tour around the café and was pleasantly surprised at how big this place is! The cats have got their own chill out area and their beds have been uniquely designed. There were a couple of ginger cats snoozing in their own beds, I couldn’t help but scratch their little chin! They all seem very friendly, content and so relaxed! The cats are literally spoiled with toys and scratching posts. The place feels cosy and spacious with comfy sofas, lots of cushions, a piano and cat decor.
Drinks and Food preparation
Pause Cat Cafe is vegan and vegetarian friendly (woohoo!). They have lunch options and cakes for those of you who's got a sweet tooth! Apart from coffee, the cafe also serves healthy smoothies and juices. You must try the PINA-CAT-LADA (Coconut water, pineapple juice, lime). Food and drinks are prepared in different rooms where cats are not allowed. The staff will bring out the food for you in the main seating area where of course cats can walk around, play or sit next to you!
What are the cats like?
Well, what can I say... the cats already own this place. They seemed very relaxed during my visit and they loved all the attention. Some cats were more playful then others, some were having their beauty sleep and others enjoyed being stroked. They were all very friendly. They are carefully chosen and share similar characteristics and they all meet a certain criteria.
Where is it?
Pause cat café is located right in the middle of town, surrounded by plenty of other shops on Old Christchurch Road in Bournemouth town centre, BH1 1EP. If you’re local and still wondering where it is… the cat café is a short walk away from Wilkinsons in Bournemouth.
