About
New Zealand’s longest running cat café, located in Birkenhead on Auckland's North Shore, in the heart of the ‘village with a view’. We are sanctuary to a clowder of very special resident rescue cats, all of whom are older and some with special needs. We've created a tranquil space where our kitties can live their best lives and those in need of a bit of feline therapy can visit. We also have a dedicated adoption room where we foster for rescues and help match these cats to their forever homes when they are ready. As a small, independently run, social enterprise, all proceeds contribute towards our cats' care and the continual running of their home.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I’ve visited purrs and beans before (both in their current location and when they were located in the Auckland cbd as barista cats) and have always had such a wonderful time. Ever member of the team is so kind and welcoming and their level of care for the patrons is second to none. I’ve always felt so welcome in their space. And the cats. They’re all so well looked after and the cats welfare is the teams top priority and it truly shows. The rooms are always clean and tidy. Sure there’s fur around but I mean. Cats. They have fur. It’ll shed every now and then. But the team clean up the excess regularly so you’re in no way swimming in it. And the selection of drinks and treats is great and all tastes wonderful and made with love. Plus they have cute cat merch both purrs and beans branded and just cat stuff in general. And all the proceeds off sales of the cafe food/drink and merch goes right back into the cafe to help pay for the cats care. I highly recommend visiting purrs and beans as you’ll have a wonderful time and be treated like family!

It's a lovely place! I visited with my boyfriend last Friday for the Board Games Night event. There was good coffee, a friendly and caring staff and cats all over the place. Guaranteed enjoyment! 😺 The space is designed for the comfort of the cats and if you know how to earn their trust, you can enjoy the pleasure of playing with them 😻
There's a lovely gift shop with amazing souvenirs.
It is necessary to book for obvious reasons: cats don't want unexpected visitors! :P
