Love every minute of it. Staff very friendly, food and beverages good and the cats are all beautiful. Will defiantly be back sometime soon. Keep up the good work.
lovely staff, adorable cats and an overall wonderful, atmosphere made our experience one of the best we've had at any cafe in the north east :)
This is a fab place with great cats- so cute. My kids love coming here. Our favourites are Flora, Betty and Gatsby. The food and drinks isn't bad either!
My partner and I loved our first experience at Catpaw Cino - we were visiting from New Zealand and missing all our feline furbabies so it was great to meet at the "fur residents" in the café and have a smooch and a cuddle - all so laid back and relaxed. They all had a play too - marvelous having the box of cat toys by the door :-) Next time we are back in Newcastle we will definitely visit again. Huge kudos too to whomever came up with the name - very clever!! Jules and Arron, Christchurch, New Zealand
I went with a friend and my 8 year old granddaughter. We all loved it. We were especially happy that the table we were shown to had Gatsby curled up on the couch. He slept there for almost the entire time we were in the café. My granddaughter waved a cat treat in front of this nose and that made him move. She then fed him a few more treats and he was then sat and watched us as we left. This is my third visit to the café but it most certainly will not be my last. On talking to the young lady who was serving us on Saturday, we were told that Ebby has had kittens and that she will be due back to the café in around 6 weeks with one of the kittens. We are going to try and get back shortly after that to see both of them. The cafe is always clean and welcoming. Nice choice of snacks and drinks.
I had a wonderful time. I was a bit concerned about how hygienic the cafe would be but they do a very good job of keeping on top of the cat hair. It's possibly the cleanest cafe I've been in so far this year. The cats were wonderful and the staff were very nice. They were friendly but not climbing on everything (the cats and the staff...). The only thing that could be improved is the availability of the food on the menu. As someone with a rare food allergy I find it hard to choose food I can eat from a menu in general so availability is very important to me. That being said, the gentleman that served us made sure that my sandwich was made so it was safe for me to eat. My sandwich, my mocha and my peppermint traybake were all absolutely delicious. I can't wait to go back, hopefully not at nap time next time.
Went to Catpawchino this afternoon, on arrival we were met by a friendly helpful member off staff to explain a couple of rules before entering ie- no feeding the cats and flash turned off when taking any photos. First thing I thought off when entering the room was how relaxed the atmosphere was. All cats were asleep but had woken 20 mins before we left, which was nice. Menu was basic but food was tasty enough. Cats friendly and seemed to enjoy the company of strangers looking/petting them. It was something different and i would recommend this cafe especially if you are a cat lover. It was busy so I would defintently book a table to avoid disappointment.
If you are expecting coffee in a mad cattery you will be disappointed. Not sure what I expected, but I was pleasantly surprised. I treated my sister as her Easter Egg and we both agreed what a calming, enchanted experience. The cats of course are the draw and they are all beautiful, cute and wonderful to watch. A must to be put on anyone's bucket list and I am sure it will not be our only visit. Congratulations on a great idea and a big thank you to the young man who was working front of house, he was pleasant, informative and very helpful.
CatPawChino was an excellent experience for my girlfriend and I. The staff at the cafe are friendly and attentive, it is well located on the quayside, and the cats are obviously very well looked after and playful. Besides the obvious reason to go there- to see and play with the cats- the cafe itself is very nice: the coffee and tea are good, plus the selection and quality of food is also good. I'd highly recommend this place for anyone who likes cats and also wants a good cup of tea.
