Welcome to Fancy Meow Cat Cafe! FANCY MEOW Cat Cafe is Rotorua's first Cat Cafe New Zealand's only Cat Cafe with beautiful purebred CATS and KITTENS! We are so excited to bring the very first Cat Cafe to Rotorua! Here we have many beautiful feline friends that will bring you joy. We will be very busy for the first few months of opening, particularly on weekends and holidays, so please make sure you pre-purchase your tickets here or call us in advance (07 460 6868) to ensure your place before arrival, as we have to limit the number of people per hour for the well-being of our cats. So, come in for a visit to relax, decompress, and enjoy our furry friends. The cats and kittens are always grateful for play and cuddle time with their human companions. We can't wait to host you at Fancy Meow!

If you love cats you have to stop by. $15 gets you an hour with the cats and a coffee. You need to remove shoes or place slippers over them, sanitise your hands. They are quite protective of ensuring the cats are safe. You will...More

Similar to other cat cafes I have visited: a couple of spaces, lots of places for cats to climb & sleep. Unlike others, your hour starts whenever you arrive, which makes it easier to make an impromptu stop. All but one of the cats looked...More

Great way to spend an hour over coffee watching and playing with various cats. Recommend to anyone who likes cats. A moggy or two would be good to have there also.

This place is awesome! Good price. Cats are playful and don't mind the human contact. The rooms are very hygienic and clean. Doesn't smell like 10 cats are living there. I would recommend and I will definitely be returning.More

A whole hour, with a coffee, and lots of adorable cats to play with and stroke. Totally de-stressing!! Extremely clean premises. Friendly staff, and tv to watch of funny cats and more. Left this place with an absolute warmth in my soul.
