Vancouver’s newest cafe is going to be the purrrfect destination for local cat lovers. Vancouver’s new ‘mysterious cat forest’ themed cafe, Catoro Cafe, has revealed its opening date.

Described as “an escape from society and from everyday worries”, Catoro Cafe will be located at 666 East Broadway in Vancouver, just minutes away from Commercial Skytrain station.


Catoro Cafe will not only be a place where you come to find a cat for yourself, but instead, a magical destination where you want to spend hours visiting again and again.

Catoro Cafe Inspiration

The concept for Catoro Cafe is based on the 1980’s Japanese animation “My Neighbour Totoro”. With that being said, one side of the business will be dedicated to serving bubble tea and waffle desserts.

The other side will be a cat petting area where patrons can pay an admission to come and spend time with rescue cats and potentially adopt one if they are the right fit.

The concept is very similar to a cafe in Tokyo known as “Temari no Ouchi.”

Opening Date

The new cafe will have their soft opening on Monday, July 29th and will be open daily from noon to 10:00 p.m.

The owners of the new cafe have also set up a GoFundMe page to help support their business.
