Cat Café Manila
The 14 chubby and cute cats at Cat Café Manila are Puspin or Pusang Pinoy from their partner organization CARA (Compassion and Responsibility for Animals), and used to be strays. The owners decided to tie up with CARA to promote cat rescue and adoption. Enjoy the company of cute felines with bestselling drinks like the handcrafted coffee, the ice-blended Pawreo Cheese Shake, Clawcolate Mint and Nutty Meowcadamaia. Cakes and cookies are also available. Drop by during lunch, dinner or after dinner hours when the cats are more keen to play.
How much: Entry is PHP200 for one hour (PHP100 is consumable).
