About
Aid,relax, catlings, a cup of coffee, or tea.....these are only a few of many words characterizing our main reasons for launching this unusual, challenging but at the same time very enjoyable project. The 21st century's life is bustling and stressfull. Time is flustered, everything has to be done ,,Asap" and there is no time for leisure (taking breath). People are dashing constantly without thinking of their well-being and relaxation. Nowadays it is an obvious aspect that release of stress and mental hygiene are the main essentials for surviving nowadays. Do you attend often (from time to time)your favorite coffee-house accompanied with your friends? Do you love animals ? Would you like to support shelter animals? If the answer is ,,yes", you are JUST LIKE US. So what would you say about the idea to replace classic sitting in a coffee-house by sitting in a comfortable environment of our club, which is completely different from all the clubs you were accustomed in our country. You can spend wonderful time in our club in the soothing company of our lovely cats. It is already based on scientific approach, that cats are able to raise the health condition of human being. Just imagine - you meet your friends in a placescape of our home-like club of cat-fanciers, you take a seat in our unconventional , but comfortable sittings and you order your favorite cup of coffee or tea. There will be something more for you , a real healing balm for your soul, our cats. You can caress them or snuggle up to them or just play with them, if they would like to cuddle, snooze or play too. Let's stop to imagine all this and come to visit us to experience this feeling on line. We offer not only relax, but also the possibility to support SHELTER cats(cats at a pinch) Do you ask how? In co-operation with a civic association ,,MačkySOS" (CatsSOS), we give a hand to rescued cats to find their new friends and home, which they are really worthy of. Are you considering adoption of a cat currently? That's one of the reasons why to visit us. Or do you think! simply about how to make a ,,good deed"? This is enough reason too. So stop talking about it, let's visit our club and youĺl find probably your new true friend for the term of your life. We look forward to spending time with you in our club ,,Mačkafé". Miaow! Sincerely Yours ,,Mačkafé Team".

    Wonderful place 😻
    It is cozy and nice cat cafe with such cutest cats 😻. Very friendly stuff, it is very clean there and on every table you will find disinfectant, so you can cuddle with cats and directly clean your hands. And the cats are so sweet, hand tame and cute! Just to have a cup of tea or coffee and have cats around you is just amazing, we loved this place 😻😻😻

    Hidden Gem in Bratislava
    This place was a very pleasant surprise. We stumbled across it on our way to the castle. As cat lovers, we were delighted to find a cafe that takes in stray cats, looks after them and allows customers to interact with them. We only had drinks here but they were delicious. The atmosphere is lovely, staff friendly and welcoming and some nice merchandise, in support of the rescue cat association, on sale also. We were very happy to discover this place. Definitely worth a visit. Highly recommended :)

    Fantastic cat cafe
    Lovely chilled atmosphere. Loved the cats!!! We visited twice & noticed that each had their preferred sleeping spots. Staff were lovely. Good food & drink, even alcohol is served. Great music playing. I preferred this to many other cat cafes which I’ve visited. Even my accompanying, non cat-lover friend, loved the vibes.

    Top class cat cafe
    I visit a cat cafe in every town that has one. Mačkafe is one of the best so far. Great environment, friendly cats and a great overall offer. They even have t-shirts and other cat themed things you can buy. Heaven for all cat lovers.

    What a wonderful place!
    A fantastic cat cafe 10 mins walk from the old town. The cats are rescue cats and all very happy and content. Prices are very reasonable and a large offering of drinks to choose from. Cosy inside and a book on each table that tells you each cats story (8 cats in total) I came here a solo female traveller and was made to feel very welcome. Menus are available in English. Be sure to pop in for a drink and cake if you are in Bratislava!

    Fun cafe
    Having been to cat cafes before we were pleasantly surprised to find this not-for-profit cafe just a few metres from the Bratislava castle. Cats milling around that you can play with whilst having your coffee and cake. Run by some lovely ladies. Just a note that it is a cash only cafe with cat related souvenirs to buy. All the money goes to support the cats.

Very nice place. A lot of cats but unfortunately a lot of kids as well and i didn’t like that the kids were coming to our table all of the time to pet a cat when there were other cats to pet as well. It was annoying

A great atmosphere and the nicest people!! The iced tea was refreshing. And the cats were all asleep…that happens in early afternoon. It was delightful.

The only downside is that they are cash only and there are no banks or ATMs (that were operational) nearby. So we walked down the hill to a bank and back up the hill. We got our steps in and it was all for a great non profit!

Would totally go again.
