Cat Cafe Review: Maison De Moggy, 26 Hamilton Place, Edinburgh

By Emma @glasgowfoodie

Maison de Moggy is a pop-up cat café in the Stockbridge area of Edinburgh. Opening in January of this year, it’s home to ten gorgeous pedigree cats. These are pampered kittehs with drink fountains, chez lounge and even their own discreet toilets.

As it’s a new concept on these shores (Maison de Moggy is the first cat café in Scotland) you have to read a list of rules before you enter but they’re all fairly common-sense and intended for the cats’ well-being.  Some hand sanitizer and shoe covers later, we were in the midst of kittenville.

Interest from passers by

The café is split into two areas.  Main cafe and play area at ground level with downstairs being a chill out zone with a more subdued feel.

Downstair’s lounge

For £6 during the week or £7 at weekends, you get an hour of cat time.   This can be spent sitting with a cuppa and some cake watching them prowl about, attacking each other and then becoming best pals again or playing with them yourself.

All of the cakes are bought in from local producers should you have any hygiene concerns.

Cat friendly reading material

We had a natter with owner Laura O’Neil who explained her love of cat cafés after visiting Tokyo.  She thought that there was a gap in the market here for people who love cats but can’t get one due to partner allergies, rental agreements or their lifestyle.

But even for those who can and want a cat at home, the café is also a means of discovering which type of cat would suit you as the temperaments of each breed can be very different.

We had a lovely time at Maison de Moggy, beautiful cats, friendly nannies and good local tea and coffee!  On returning to Glasgow we tried to pretend to our own two cats that we hadn’t been out playing with other cats but we were sussed – many Dreamies had to be purchased before they forgave us!
