Knoxville has their very own cat cafe! Now two years old, Scruffy’s opened in June 2020, in the the midst of the pandemic. Scruffy’s Cafe is the fifth cat cafe in Tennessee, joining the state’s already thriving cat cafes in Nashville, Chattanooga, and Murfreesboro. Surely the state’s third largest city should have their very own cat cafe!
Scruffy’s Cafe is located in a stand-alone building on North Broadway with ample, easy parking. Local fave K-Brew is just a three minute walk away and the Happy Holler Historic District is just around the corner. Scruffy’s lives up to it’s goal: “bring more light and love” to the neighborhood.
