For those who can’t get too close to the kitties without sneezing a ton, there are no worries. Although cats reside at the coffee shop, they’re kept in a separate room away from the comedy venue.
That’s right. Java Cats Café isn’t just a cute name. It’s home to several cats from Decatur’s PAWS Atlanta, a no-kill shelter.
Opened in 2017, the coffee house touts itself as Georgia’s first cat cafe. Hadyn Hilton was 24 when she opened the shop, which accepts reservations every day of the week except on Mondays. A life-long cat owner, Hilton previously told the AJC “there's never been a time in my life when we didn't have cats."
Java Cats opened a second location in Marietta in 2018.
