Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium

Lady Dinah's Cat Emporium birthday package

I visited Lady Dinah’s Cat Eporium last week, which is the most adorable cafe tucked away in London, where you can drink tea, eat cake and play with 13 cats…

The last of my birthday posts… I promise!

My sister booked a surprise trip for us to go to the Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium in London. It’s a private little cat café in Shoreditch, just a short 10-minute
walk from London Liverpool Street.

Lady Dinah’s Cat
Emporium is London’s first ever cat cafe. It’s filled with adorable cats, faux-vintage furnishings and plenty of cute china crockery. You have to pre-book, but during your slot, you can walk around both levels of the cafe, play with the cats and order delicious food and drink!

From the outside, it just looks like a standard cute little café, but
inside, there’s so much more going on!

We were greeted by lovely staff, who were attentive and friendly the whole
time; on hand to answer questions and they were just genuinely the happiest and
most relaxed people!

There are two levels to the cat café, and we were seated in the “basement”
level. The café is undergoing a transformation but the décor was amazing. There’s a painted tree
memorial in the centre, with various cat baskets, toys and cat beds to look at.
Then, there’s a bridge that runs along the ceiling for the cats to walk on to
get to various different platforms and to their little cat beds!

We had a browse of the menu, and eventually agreed on the Popcorn Green Tea
for 2, and a dark hot chocolate each. I also adored a salted caramel brownie
which was insanely rich but delicious.

A few minutes later, we were served our drinks and I received the sweetest
little birthday hamper! It had a cat birthday card, limited edition cat mug and
a delicious red velvet cupcake with writing on. It was the sweetest surprise
and I genuinely didn’t suspect a thing.

For the next hour and a half, we walked around looking at the cats, stroking
them and playing with them.

We stayed at basement level, but you’re free to walk around the two levels,
stroke the cats, play with them and just have a look around.

The beauty of this cat café, is that all the cats are from rescue homes and
they are looked after and treated so, so well here. They all look healthy,
happy and groomed, and you can tell just how happy they are as they’re totally
relaxed and laid back.

For anyone who loves cats, this should be high on your list of places to visit in London! I can’t wait to visit it again sometime soon.

    I love this cafe. I visited last year and it was fab. The cats are so cute and the decor is stunning, suitable both for guests and cats. I've been to the one in Manchester and I loved that one too.

    This is such a sweet idea but I'd totally be worried that one of the cats would swipe my food. I'd also probably try and take one of the cats home.

    It looks like you had an amazing birthday! I hope 21 is being good to you so far xx

    It sounds like you had such a good time! I'm not a huge cat person, but it's definitely a fun idea if you are. I love that the cats are from rescue homes, too.
