Located in the former home of Cleo Coffee & Ice Cream Lab, the Marietta Java Cats was funded in part by a GoFundMe Hilton launched last year.
The cafe has a similar setup to the Grant Park spot, with coffee and pre-packaged food served on one side of the space and a separate area for customers to interact with shelter cats, all available for adoption, on another side.
The Marietta building is triple the size of the original location, which will allow room for at least 30 cats. The Grant Park location has already adopted out more then 250 cats. 12 people will be permitted in the cat room per session so the cats won’t ever feel overwhelmed; reservations are recommended.
