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!

This place is definitely one of the must-visit places in Rotorua, and I would say, the best cat cafe in New Zealand!!!! The cats are so beautiful and well-mannered (and extremely soft!!!). And the cafe is very cozy and hygienic. It was a great experience...More

We have tried a few cat cafes in Auckland so decided we had to try this one when we saw it in Rotorua. The cats are gorgeous and very playful. The mix of pedigree and rescue cats means that you get a variety of temperaments...More

Great place to pass the time; the drinks were great and the cats weren’t aggresive & Rules were fair.

Visited this cute cafe and fell in love with the cats. Staff were friendly and coffee was good. Great value for money since you just pay NZD 15 for an hour with the cats and a cup of coffee. :)
