Hot Kitty in the City: Review of Mackafe
Mackafe is an adorable place, but on the day we visited the heat, unfortunately, made it a low energy outing .
Located near the old town and castle, we walked up a few hills and our sweaty selves were excited to see the sign in the distance which was short-lived when we discovered there was no air conditioning. The heat didn't only affect the humans as overheated cats languished about the tile floor trying to cool themselves and were in no mood for lap sitting or playing.
The young lady who greeted us, however, was very pleasant. I ordered a peach lemonade and Perry, a hot chocolate, as hot weather seemingly has no bearing on this man's capacity for the beverage. The presentation was first rate as our drinks were served on a decorative tray and the lemonade in a fancy refillable bottle.
We sipped and looked around. The space was clean and cozy with many soft pillows and couches for humans and cats to bond. They did not have much in the way of elaborate cat entertainment: i.e. jungle gyms and overhead catwalks, but had a few shelves on the walls for cats to escape people, if necessary.
Most of the patrons were young twenty-somethings (not like us), but just like us, wished to interact with the cats. All we could do was gently pet them sparingly (as not to contribute more heat), while cooing sweet, incomprehensible nothings.
Our drinks amounted to just over 7€ and despite the sweltering conditions, we enjoyed our time at this pretty little cafe. Recommended.
