Common Questions About Animal Cafés in Vancouver

Do I need an appointment to go to an animal café?

In order to avoid huge crowds, most animal cafés in Vancouver require visitors to book ahead. This helps animals have a safe and relaxing environment while interacting with you.

Can I take an animal home with me?

Is it safe to eat at the animal cafés?

Yes, it absolutely is! Due to covid, some cafes suspended food and beverage services. However, once restrictions are loosened, you can grab a drink, and enjoy the cuteness all around you!
