Lucky Cat Café, Brisbane’s favourite café for coffee and cat cuddles, is bigger and better than before with a spacious new home in Annerley.
Perched on Ipswich Road and Villa Street, kitty corner from Chardons Corner Hotel, Lucky Cat’s new digs include a gorgeous, light-filled cafe with comfy, velvet couches and custom built shelving stocked with purrfect pieces for cat lovers; from cat-themed socks, mugs and more to cat toys and treats like Kitty Cappucino and Kitty Bitter cat beer.
For humans, there’s well-brewed Dancing Bean espresso. Try a catpuccino, cat white or long black cat, best accompanied by a delicious vegan cupcake or donut. Otherwise, there are T2 teas and frappes with cool cat names like Feline Fruity, Sour Puss and Meowgarita.
The main attraction at Lucky Cat though is Goliath and his feline friends, the 8 rescue cats that reside here permanently. For a small fee, customers can cuddle and pat the cats in a separate room, furnished with lounges for guests, swinging cat bridges and a cool and quirky wall mural by street artist Barek.
Need to know - Children 8+ years old are welcome. Booking is highly recommended, especially on weekends.
Nice to know - Parking is available on street and behind the building.
