Miss Universe of Cat Cafes: Review of Mocha Lounge Ikebukuro
In terms of sheer beauty, Mocha Lounge Ikebukuro wears the crown.
The space is aptly named as the first thing I wanted to do when I entered this cat cafe was to throw myself on one of the many lounge stations and just bask in the atmosphere.
Upscale to be sure, with prices to match, Mocha also stands out in space-strapped Tokyo for its sheer enormity. It's one of the largest cat cafes I've visited and the biggest in the Mocha chain.
Lest you think this reviewer a diva only capable of finding favor in conventionally gorgeous places, please see the excellent reviews for Cat Eyes, Momi and Miau, decidedly scruffy places that are actually charming when cute kitties and engaged staff are involved.
But alas, it is the facility that helps put this cafe in coveted 4.5 paw overall score range, and despite lower scores for staff (spent more time cleaning than anything else) and food/drink (decent vending machine drinks, but still), the stand out felines also make this place a treat. Luscious long-haired beauties such as Persians, Somalis, Maine Coons and American Curls provide plenty of eye candy while you kick back and relax after a long day of sight seeing on the busy streets of Tokyo.
Treats available for Y500, and feeding times at 10:30 and 19:30.
