One of our favourite places to visit in Prague was the Cat cafe – Social Point (also known as Cat cafe, Gorazdova). All of us loved it and we went to visit many times during our stay in Prague.
The cafe operates on a pay as you go system – it costs 90kc per person for the first hour and then 1kc for each minute after that first hour. You can help yourself to snacks and drinks in the kitchen area – there is tea, coffee and squash. The snacks are usually cupcakes, pretzels, nuts, crackers and sweets.
There is free wifi in the cafe so it is a great place to come to do some work/blogging/worldschooling.
When you arrive a member of staff will show you around and then give you a plastic card – you give this card back when you leave and then you can pay based on how long you have stayed. There is also a loyalty card you can get. If you visited the cafe three times then you would receive an extra hour for free.
There are lots of different spaces in the cafe – 3 different rooms and a kitchen and bathroom. We felt that the cats had a reasonably large space to live and roam in. (They are indoor cats) The different rooms consist of a living room, a games room and a cat room.
The living room has lots of sofas and tables. There are board games and a TV with playstation available. The games room has a huge screen and a couple of sofas. There is a K’nect so you can play various games (we played football, table tennis and bowling). The cat room has all the cats toys, climbing trees and feeding bowls.
There are 6 cats in the cat cafe: Kenzo, Hugo, Debbie, Theo, Leo and Beatrice. All the cats are very sweet. They don’t all like to be petted though so you need to get to know their characters (or talk to the staff about them) as some are happier to hang out with you more than others. As they are all rescue cats it’s understandable that some may be a little wary of humans.
Roobs’ favourite cat was Theo.
Theo is my favourite cat because he was always up for playing. His favourite toy is a feather toy. I used to drag it across the floor and he would chase it.
The staff who work in the cafe are really friendly and genuinely love the cats. They spoke excellent English and Roobs loved talking to them about what the cats had been up to that week.
As we have travelled we have found we really miss our 2 cats, Tipsy and Squidge. They are being well looked after by my brother and his family but we miss their company. Going to the cat cafe has helped us get our ‘cat fix’ and was a relaxing way to spend an afternoon.
