Cat vs Cafe (50/50)
Peekaboo, I See You (maybe): Review of Peekaboo Cat Cafe
No one said it was going to be easy.
I knew before I started that trying to visit and document all the cat cafes in the world would be a challenging goal, but little did I know how difficult it would be in China.
The visiting part hasn't been the problem- take Peekaboo Cat Cafe. It's a bright and spacious place that is clean and classy. The staff are lovely and the coffee delicious. The cats are friendly and plentiful.
I just wish I could be more helpful in guiding you to it.
I was there, as evidenced by these photos, but I'll be darned if my Google Maps and Maps.me searches have come up empty. Adding to the problem is that China doesn't allow the usual social media outlets where you can easily find such information as address, phone, store hours, etc. So, I have no website, Facebook or Twitter sites to aid me. I'm not even sure how I found it in the first place!
What I CAN tell you is that it's right outside the Caotang Road North metro station (Green Line 4) at the south exit.
Once there, I'm sure you will have a great time. There are about ten cats of various breeds, including an adorable Birman kitten. The day we visited, the cafe was full of young students studying and the cats were playful. We ordered two lattes for 64 yuan ($9.27) and a can of food for 15 yuan ($2.17), which made us very popular with the cats.
If you find yourself in Chengdu for Sichuan food, or to see the Pandas, it's an easy metro ride out to Peekaboo for a cup of joe and a relaxing afternoon in the company of kitties.
