Show me the Missouri cat cafes! From east to west and in-between, the Show Me state has got the cat cafes. Missouri is now home to five cat cafes, spaced evenly across the state. It’s possible to visit four cat cafes in an easy cruise across the state. And the tourist destination of a Branson is now complete with its very own cat cafe.
St. Louis is home to both the first cat cafe in Missouri and also the first cat cafe in the Midwest. Set in the hip St. Louis border suburb of Maplewood, Mauhaus Cat Cafe and Lounge opened its doors in 2016. Two more Missouri cat cafes debuted in 2018, with the opening of the Ernest Hemingway-inspired Papa’s Cat Cafe opening in the college town of Columbia and Whiskers Cat Cafe in Kansas City. St. Louis gained a second, AMAZING cat cafe with the opening of the fabulous Cheshire Grin this summer. Mochas and Meows in Branson is the newest Missouri cat cafe.
