The adventure was actually part of Tony's Valentine present. In doing research, I found out that the cafe accepts walk-in visitors, but strongly suggests making a reservation. The $10 per person reservation fee gets you an hour in the lounge, and when you arrive that fee turns into a credit towards food and beverages from the cafe.
The cafe is situated on a street corner in Maplewood, and I'm guessing that in a past life it was a store. When we arrived we walked through the entrance door into the small cafe area. The lounge was off to the left, separated from the cafe by a glass walls and a set of doors. Before we went in we signed a waiver and ordered some coffee and pastries. Then, it was time for kitty fun.
The lounge space has been definitely been designed with cats in mind, with shelves, cubbies, cat trees, tunnels, and even a catwalk around the perimeter. There were a couple of standard size tables, several low cube tables, and bench seating along two sides of the room. Cushions were scattered on the floor, and a couple were being used (both by people sitting on the floor and cats taking a nap).
We found out that there were eight cats in the cafe. Some were residents, and some were available for adoption. All of them were adorable.
