Our Story

The Catio is a vibrant and unique cat lounge and vegan bakery. Located in the heart of East Nashville, The Catio is a unique experience for locals who can walk, bike or rideshare to us regularly. We strive to build a sense of community by offering a place were Nashvillians can come to eat, relax, and watch kitties 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.

When you walk through the front door, you will be welcomed by bountiful lush greenery (all plants are cat-safe, with small instructional cards tucked into each plant) that purifies the air and brings life to our indoor space. All plants will be available for purchase. You can enjoy a cup of drip coffee, cold brew, tea or a mineral water and choose a treat from our 100% plant-based bakery menu: enjoy cinnamon roll, a vegan breakfast hot pocket, wonderful homemade cookies, and so much more.

Pull up a seat in the main room, or book an hour in the cat room to get some work done or just play with the cats! One hour visits in the cat room are $10 for adults and $7 for kids and you can book in advance on our website (feature coming soon) or sit back and enjoy the view until a space opens up.
