Kawaii Kitty Cafe
Kawaii Kitty Café, Philadelphia
When Kristin Eissler opened the city’s first cat café last summer, she wasn’t sure how the locals would react. Fast-forward nearly a year and Kawaii Kitty Café is a knockout success. “We’ve been booked every weekend since opening day,” Eissler says, noting that movie nights with the shop’s adoptable shelter cats have proven to be especially popular. To date, more than 70 of the café felines have found homes.
