Newcastle is well-known for its rich history, stunning architecture, and friendly locals. But amidst the bustling streets and cultural attractions, there lies a unique treat for both animal lovers and café enthusiasts alike - dog and cat cafés! These delightful havens allow visitors to unwind with a cup of coffee or tea while enjoying the therapeutic company of adorable dogs and cats.
Read on to take a journey through Newcastle's most charming dog and cat cafés.
CatPawCino sits on the Quayside, offering a space for cat lovers to seek refuge and enjoy the company of the feline residents. The cafe is situated between the Tyne Bridge and the Millennium Bridge and is a fifteen minute walk from Newcastle Central Station. Inside the cafe lives eight cats, all ready to be adored by the cafe's customers. The cafe can sit 15 covers at a time in their ‘cat lounge’.
Entry is £5 per person for an hour with the cats, with the money going towards vet bills, food and feline entertainment. The cafe also offer complimentary entrance to children aged 6-16 with autism as studies have shown that interaction with pets, particularly cats and dogs can help improve the social behaviour and confidence of autistic children. If you do plan to bring an autistic child, mention this in the notes section when booking your place and a refund for their place will be given on the day.
It's not only the company of the cats that will make a visit to CatPawCino memorable. The cafe serves a wide range of cat themed cakes and biscuits, as well as soups and sandwiches, and a selection of hot and cold drinks. They also serve a range of Chinese drinks. Choose from a selection of speciality teas such as Jasmine Tea, special Oolong tea, Chrysanthemum tea and Bowl Tea.

Heaven for all dog lovers, Dog and Scone is Newcastle's only dog cafe. Step back from the hustle and bustle of Newcastle city centre and step into the tranquil and relaxing space with Dog and Scone's seven resident dogs. Step into the garden themed cafe, which helps create a warm, relaxing atmosphere so that both you and the pooches can enjoy each other's company.
Entry to Dog and Scone is £6 per person. You will pay a £2 deposit when booking online to secure your place, meaning a remaining £4 is left to pay when you arrive. Each session lasts 55 minutes, meaning you have lots of quality time with the dogs. The cafe serves a range of hot and cold drinks, cakes, toasties, wraps and as the name suggests, scones!
The cafe is open on Tuesday- Fridays from 11am until 6pm and Saturdays and Sundays from 11am until 7pm. Want to book? Find out more here.
If you are wanting a day filled with quality animal time head to Mog on the Tyne which is conveniently located next to Dog and Scone. Mog on the Tyne was Newcastle's first cat cafe and has been offering customers a calm, relaxing space away from the busy city centre for many years.
Spend an hour with their delightful family of rescued cats, indulge in delicious brownies, 'pawninis' and carefully chosen hot and cold drinks; all from local suppliers for just £6. Open six days a week (Mondays are a day of rest for the cats!) Mog on the Tyne encourages you to book your slot before your visit to avoid disappointment. Find out more here.
You Meow is Newcastle's newest and most luxurious cat cafe experience. The cats at You Meow are a variety of breeds including Siamese, Maine Coon and British Shorthair.
The entry fee for the cafe is £10 per hour, which includes a soft drink on arrival and treats for the cats. You can find them on Bath Lane in Newcastle, near the Tyne Theatre & Opera House.
