What is there to do?

So what is a cat cafe? Well, it's a cafe with cats, of course!

Papas Cat Cafe is central Missouri's FIRST ever cat cafe, bringing people and cats together in a fun and playful environment.

Want to spend the day patting and playing with cats? Then keep reading!

Think of this family day out experience as a cafe visit with the family, just with a huge furry bonus.  Well, over 12 furry bonuses.

Papas Cat Cafe is the perfect place to grab a coffee, juice, or nibble on some baked goods as you take in the fun Key-West inspired decor, as an homage to Ernest "Papa" Hemingway. Kids, he was one of America's more interesting and influential authors. He also happened to love cats!

The cafe is a great place to just hang out with the family. What's also great is that all of the cats are from a local shelter, and all up for adoption. So if you want to take one of those previous animals home to give them a happy life, you can!

Cats, coffee, food, and a fun, relaxed environment. Just make a reservation, and get ready to play!

Any top tips?


They do have rules as to how you can handle the cats, so for their own well being please do take them in before you sit down. For obvious reasons, they don't permit other pets to enter the cafe
