Neko Cafe: Vienna’s first coffee house cats!
Vienna, city of coffee culture, has a new attraction: Neko Cafe. It opened last May and is located in the city centre near Stephansplatz. Neko is the Japanese word for cat, and there in lays the peculiarity: While visitors drink coffee or tea, they can stroke one of the many cats of the cafe.
The trend to visit cats in the cafe and have a break with them is not new: in Japan, there have been cat’s cafes for years and it is common to pay admission to enter and to stay in the cafe.
In Vienna you only pay what you consume, you can taste Japanese tea and juices of Austrian farmers, homemade cakes and snacks.
The culinary delights are not the main focus for the visitors but especially the playing and cuddling of six cats is. Moritz, Luca, Haru, Momo, Sonia and Thomas are from the Vienna animal shelter and are considered to be particularly friendly and playful.
You reach the Neko Cafe from our Hotel with the U3 to Stephansplatz: Blumenstockgasse 5, on the corner with Balgasse, open daily 10:00-20:00.
