Welcome to THE CATIO


I’m sorry, I can’t hear you over the cuteness that is all over my screen right now. Had to kick myself for timing my trip to Nashville just a few weeks before the opening of The Catio. It will operate in partnership with Nashville Cat Rescue, a network of fosters who care for and find forever homes for kittens.

They’re located about three miles from downtown Nashville at 1603 Riverside Drive, Nashville, TN 37216. This cat lounge and vegan bakery is in the heart of East Nashville. Wi-FI is available and along with a full-service cafe with fresh-baked vegan goods, there will also be Panther Coffee and select teas and other beverages.

Really, the most important is spending time with adoptable cats. Just think, you could go visit East Nashville and come back with a fur-ever friend.

We strive to build a sense of community by offering a place where Nashvillians can come to eat, relax, and watch kittens play. We are also an inviting space for the many tourists who visit Nashville every day, looking to pick up a treat and play with kittens while visiting our beautiful city.


There will be cat-safe potted plants for sale. An hour in the kitten room is $12 and they’re open Tuesday through Sunday 9am-5pm. Give ‘em a follow on Instagram to check in on progress. They should be open by mid-April. Can’t wait to visit again!
