L.A’s First-Ever Cat Cafe is Coming to Melrose Ave

Posted by

Angelenos who have a soft spots for cats can rejoice because coming this fall they’ll have the chance to cuddle all the cats–and possibly rescue some too–with the opening of the city’s first-ever cat cafe.

D.C.-based cat cafe Crumbs & Whiskers now has a home on the West Coast, more specifically on 7924 Melrose Avenue, and is set to open this fall.


Founder and proud cat lady Kanchan Singh developed an experience not that different from the recently-opened Dog Cafe  by recruiting shelter cats looking for homes. Guests can expect between 15-20 cats at the cafe at a time, she told LAist.

The featured cats will be about nine months old or older (when a cat’s immune system is fully developed according to Singh), though they will occasionally throw kitten parties, something that’ll likely happen during the grand opening (join the wait list here).

Pricing information is not available for the L.A. location but the D.C. cafe sells 75 minutes of cat cuddle time for $15 or you can purchase an all-day pass for $35 (students for $25). Snacks and coffee will come from a local eatery and will likely follow the lead of the D.C. menu with most items being less than $5. Limited availability walk-ins last 15 minutes for $5.50.

If you can’t wait till fall to get your cat fix you can check out CatCon June 25-26.
