Located in the heart of Auckland’s CBD, BaristaCats’ mission is to provide a refuge from the hustle and bustle of city life for humans and animals alike. If you’re looking for a space to chill out, have a coffee and make some fluffy friends then BaristaCats Café is the place for you.
We are home to thirteen fabulously furry residents who love to mingle and play. Check out our Meet the Cats page to get to know them all! Our focus is on hard-to-adopt-out cats so many of our cats are older and have special needs but you'll find they don't let age or disability slow them down! They do, however, get stressed and overwhelmed around younger children so in line with our SPCA welfare plan we do not allow children under 10 years old into the café.
Just like a regular café, BaristaCats offers a selection of food and drink which you can enjoy while you cozy up to our cast of colourful cats or you're welcome to take away also. We serve espresso coffee with beans from local roastery beSpecialty, a range of loose leaf teas from T2 as well as Moustache cookies and savoury snacks from Pandoro.
BaristaCats is absolutely committed to providing the best care and quality of life for our cats who have come from Franklin Cat Rescue, Paws 4 Life and SPCA Auckland. We have a thorough welfare plan that we have developed with assistance from the SPCA and to ensure that BaristaCats operates to the best possible standard at all times. Our cats' health is managed by the incredible Ellerslie Veterinary Clinic who deliver high standards of cat care with compassion and expertise. They have also achieved gold accreditation as a Cat Friendly Clinic.
Our cats require vet-tailored diets due to their age and varying specific needs. We are proud to have a partnership with Hill's Pet Nutrition who provide our cats with specially formulated food which has a precise balance of nutrients to meet their health, lifestage and dietary requirements.

It is our goal to provide an enjoyable and enriching space for both humans and cats alike where we hope our guests not only have a great time but learn a little too.
