Restaurants or cafes admitting pets have become increasingly popular – not just in Thailand but all over Asean. But one of the most frequently mentioned outlets is Caturday located on Bangkok’s Phayathai Road.
Goasean described Caturday as “a fantastically stylish little cat café is in a league of its own”. The entire café is adorned with cutesy cat-themed decor including climbing trees and cat-themed art hanging from, and directly painted on the white washed brick walls. The café is nearly always busy and is exceptionally vibrant and just so much fun. The menu matches this fun and vibrant philosophy and includes neon rainbow crepe cake and decadent smoothies. There are baskets around the walls with cat toys in them—you’ll find everything from faux mice on fishing rods to coils of string.”
The culturetrip.com says Caturday’s interior is bright and welcoming, with plenty of plush floor cushions and adorable cat-inspired trinkets throughout. Caturday Cafe is located in Cocowalk, and its desserts are almost too pretty to eat, including its rainbow crepe cake with strawberry sauce or its recommended Thai-tea crepe cake with Thai tea sauce. Order smoothies, coffees, tea or soft drinks: unlike some pet cafes around Bangkok, there is no entrance fee.

Another oft-mentioned pet place is Ketawa Dog Friendly Café in Chiang Mai.
Goasean says this wonderful dog-friendly café is one of its all-time favourites in Asia. “The interior is stunning, with long wooden tables, hanging lights and dark grey and wooden finishing, as well as plenty of space for everyone’s dogs. The coffees are a little American in flavour and there’s a small selection of typical Thai dishes to choose from too. The sweet-cup style containers scattered around the café are dog biscuit selections; there’s plenty to choose from, just in case your dog’s a little picky.”
Another notable one mentioned by the culturetrip.com, bk magazine and aspirant is Cataholic Caff located on Sukhumvit Soi 39, Bangkok.
Bk magazine says: “From the outside, Cataholic seems like an ordinary café, but step inside and you’ll find yourself in the presence of countless cats. Sit on the floor level cushions and stroke Felix and pals while you munch on honey toast or sip the signature drinks Matcha Maew Maew (green tea with soda) and Let Me Fishing (strawberry creamcheese taiyaki with whipped cream). The shop also has a little décor/accessories section as well as clothing from local designers. Desserts start from Bt35 and drinks from Bt65.
