Missouri Cat Cafes

Missouri Cat CafesShow 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 four cat cafes, spaced evenly across the state. A fifth is set to open this fall in the tourism hotspot of Branson in the southwest part of the state.

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. You’ll find the state’s newest cat cafe, Cheshire Grin, in the vibrant Cherokee Street neighborhood of St. Louis proper.

But if you’re just road-tripping down I-70 through the state, our cat cafes offer a super travel break. What could be better than cats and coffee to dust off the dust of the road? And as you travel beyond state lines, head toward any of the six of eight states bordering Missouri with their own cat cafes.
