From Crumbs and Whiskers:
“The past two months have been incredible. With your help, we have fostered over 40 cats, adopted 23 cats, and put smiles on the faces of thousands of people. Cheers to that!
But, we have also learned a lot about how we can improve. We have spent the past two months listening very carefully to everything you’ve had to say, and it’s now time for us to make some changes. So here they are:
Max Number of People: We are reducing the number of people we allow in the café at once by nearly half to eliminate overcrowding. That being said, please remember that weekends and some weeknights will still feel busy because they are our peak hours. If you would like to visit us during slow hours, we recommend weekday mornings/afternoons and late evenings.
Café Experience: We are eliminating the previous food ordering system, and are instead including complimentary coffee and tea (self serve) with your cover charge. We will also feature macarons and other treats from a neighborhood bakery for those of you with a sweet tooth. No more waiting around for orders to arrive.
Cover Charge: Starting today, August 29, our cover charge will be $15 per reservation. This charge will include complimentary coffee and tea. Due to the significant reduction in our capacity, we have no choice but to implement a small increase in our cover. We hope you’ll understand.
Seating Options: We have added additional seating options in the cat café – there are more chairs and benches for those of you who are not stoked about floor seating.
We are making lots of smaller changes as well, but these are the big ones we want you to know about. We really want you to have an amazing time at the cat café. Email us ([email protected]) if you visited Crumbs & Whiskers when we opened and did not have good time. We have some ideas on how to make it up to you.
PS. We just discovered that a lot of you really like yoga. And cats (obviously.) You know what’s coming next…”
