The shop is home to about nine cats (domestic short-haired cats and purebreds); each one adorable and cuddly in its own way. Although you can play with any furball you wish to, we’re not so sure about picking them up. There isn’t any rule against it, but these are BIG cats.
At CatNip Café, not only that you can pet these cute kittens, but you can also try tasty homemade desserts like Butterfly Pea Coconut Cake. For the drinks, we recommend Tie-Dye Smoothies; coconut & fresh milk frappe with butterfly pea.

First opened in 2014, Mohu Mohu Café is owned by a Japanese cat lover. The venue is adapted from a townhome, transforming it into a cozy and tidy cat cafe.
What’s special about the café is that most of the cats are domestic short & long-haired cats adopted by the owner. He was inspired after rescuing a kitten (now “Tama” of the Mohu Mohu Café) from an abandoned apartment in Huai Kwang. He continues to save more cats until he finally opens the café under the concept “making both humans and cats happy”.
As for the rules of interacting with the frisky felines, Mohu Mohu Café has quite a few.
First, you’re not allowed to pick up the cats, only gently pet them, since they might get stressed out. Other rules include not feeding human food to them and not disturbing them while they’re sleeping. Customers with small children need to watch their kids closely and are allowed to stay for only 1.30 hour.
Other than the cozy ambiance and friendly cats, the menu at Mohu Mohu Café also makes up a large part of its highlights. They serve various Japanese-style desserts: Mochi Sundae, Honey Toast, and the recommended item - Homemade Ice Cream served on a non-sweet bun.
