Not Your Typical Attic: Review of Cat Attic
Out of all the cat cafes in Myeongdong, this one is probably the most popular.
And for good reason, it does cafe as well as it does cat.
I love cats, but also appreciate a good cafe and feel if you are going to put the word in your title, you should deliver on the bare minimum of what a cafe is: comfortable seating for conversation and a good cup of coffee.
Cat Attic does just that. With colorful yet cozy nooks and decent lattes to attract cafe lovers, plus enough friendly kitties to satisfy cat lovers, it strikes the perfect balance of cat and cafe.
We visited on a busy day in Myeongdong and found it without issue, which was nice since most of our cat cafe locating in Seoul proved to be difficult. What I noticed right away was how the owner and her husband were equal measures welcoming and competent. They spent a great deal of time delivering drinks, wiping down surfaces and demonstrating little tricks to get the cats to interact with you. Impressive!
Unlike the images you might associate with an attic, this cafe was super clean and extremely pleasant with elegant wood and slate decor and pops of color. More importantly, the kitties were social and well-cared for.
When visiting Myeongdong (via Metro Euljiro 1/Line 2 or Myeong-dong/Line 4), I highly recommend popping in to this 3rd floor feline emporium.
