  • CatPawCino Cat Cafe

    CatPawCino Cat Cafe CatPawCino provides a refuge in the city where you can relax over a cuppa and a sandwich whilst socialising with their café kitties. Spaced across two floors, located on the beautiful Newcastle Quayside over looking the River Tyne. On the ground floor they have the ‘cat lounge’ – a sit-in café, home to our 7 resident cats.  To enjoy this space we recommend advance bookings, as spaces really fill up quickly.  Entry to the cat lounge is only £5 per person and it goes towards looking after the cats.   They also have a drop in, feline-free basement café offering food & drink for takeaway (or limited sit in), & a super cute gift shop.  A bit different from other cat cafes, they specialise in rare breeds & pedigrees, but of course they love cats of all shapes, types & sizes, and donate a percentage of our profits each month to a local cat charity.  Giving people the opportunity to see and pet cats they might not usually, so our cats are a little out of the ordinary.  You can read more about CatPawCino in our blog here.
