Cat Cafés have been appearing all over the world, and finally cat lovers have no fear, Yangon’s first cat café is in town.
Opened in Sanchaung, part of Freedom Café, a normal café downstairs, and Catpuchino Café, heaven for cat lovers upstairs. Currently there are 12 kittens and the café is planning to add 15 more kittens!
They are all pure breed, super soft and cuddly. There are set kitty play times so make sure you go at the right time, the first session is from 1pm to 3pm, the second session is from 4pm to 6pm, and the third session Is from 7pm to 9pm.
There is an entrance fee of 5,000MMK per person but until the 31st of July you can get a free glass of sparkling wine.
All the cats are friendly and love to play, some climb onto your lap and the fall asleep. The café is small and cozy perfect for some cat therapy after a long day.
Freedom Café aims to promote health through its drinks. Each drink is carefully prepared to provide specific health benefits. A drink tailored to your needs is also available.
The coffee is Bio Reishi coffee, a healthy alternative to coffee, made by mixing special mushrooms and coffee, which have been said to improve health, there are also smoothies which contain matcha or probiotics. Aside from the health effects the smoothies are great, I tried the Incredible matcha (3,000MMK) with fresh pineapple and passion fruit it, it was tangy and refreshing, while my friend tried their Go Nuts Soya (3,000MMK), a delicious peanut butter, banana smoothie.
The food menu is not extensive, there are stir fry’s, sandwiches and other snacks, we tried the Fried noodle (with a choice of chicken 2,500MMK or shrimp 3,000MMK) and the Fried Chicken and vegetable stir fry (3,000MMK), the food is simple but nothing special, and the waiting time is quite long.
However, I had a lovely evening among the kittens and I am excited to meet the new ones!
