Calico Cat Cafe

Experience the legendary cat & coffee thing

CatCafeKichi

Sip a latte and pet the kitties at a real Tokyo cat café!

My favorite cat café – the Calico, in Shinjuku – has around fifty cats. At any time, half are working in the café and half of them are off duty and sleeping in the back room.

Most of them are purebred – Maine Coon, Abyssinian, Munchkin, Persian, Scottish Fold, Tabby, etc. plus a few typical Japanese calicos with half-length tails

Lattes are served upside down, with the coffee on top and the milk at the bottom, lest all the cats descend upon your drink like a flock of seagulls
