WHO WE ARE

The goal of Gem City Catfé is to foster positive interactions between cats and people, in an expectation free environment. We are a cafe space serving high-end espresso, tea, and delicious bakery items with a fully separated cat lounge and free WIFI. Our cat lounge is home to 18 adoptable, feline friends from our 501(c)(3) non-profit rescue partner, Gem City Kitties. We also have an art gallery upstairs, which serves as extra seating for co-working or for activities like classes, meetings, and workshops.

CATS

We have 16 rescue cats living in the cat lounge! Come to say hi and help socialize or adopt if you meet the right friend!

COMMUNITY

Our upstairs art gallery features local Dayton artists with large tables, cozy chairs, and plenty of seating for working or meeting friends!

COFFEE

Espresso bar with coffee, tea, assorted bottled beverages and locally made bakery items! (Vegan and gluten free options!)

 
 
 

HOW THE CAT LOUNGE WORKS

The cat lounge is fully separated from the cafe side by two doors. You can still watch the cats play through the glass if you're in a hurry, have a coffee on the cafe side if you have allergies, or grab a drink and sit upstairs. To visit the cat lounge, we suggest reservations, but we do accept walk-ins if we have space!

OUR RESCUE PARTNER

 
 

Gem City Kitties is a 501(c)(3) non-profit created to partner with Dayton's Cat Café, Gem City Catfé. Together, both organizations work to improve the lives of cats in Dayton. We collaborate with local rescues and shelters to help find homes for cats in need.

The cats are waiting for you! While we do accept walk-ins, reservations are strongly encouraged to make sure there is space available in the cat lounge. We only allow 12 people in the cat lounge at a time to ensure a stress free environment for our friendly felines.
