London’s Cat Cafe – Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium

Posted September 22, 2017

We all know us Brits love their tea. ‘High tea’ was a term used by the upper class in the 18th and 19th centuries to describe a small meal or snack (accompanied by tea, of course) between lunch and dinner. Throughout the centuries it’s become tradition and habit for families all across the UK. It’s very popular in cafes and restaurants in London and makes for a nice break from a busy day sightseeing or a time out to rest your feet after a successful day of shopping.

If you really want to make your high tea experience in London special you might want to try Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium. It’s a high tea experience built specially for cat lovers. There are two stories and 12 pampered, fluffy, languid cats with their own unique personalities (and Twitter accounts!). The Emporium offers a selection of cakes, sandwiches, teas, and cat treats if you feel like making a furry friend during your visit.

This idea comes from Japan, which is where the idea of Cat Cafe’s originated. However, in Japan, these cat cafes are often described as being set up more as a cat playroom that serves drinks. London’s Cat Cafe – Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium feels more like a real cafe, with a decor that resembles a beautifully designed cafe that just happens to be full of cats.

Get down to Shoreditch and check out Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium, but beware the cafe is very popular so make sure you’ve made a booking before you arrive!
