Capawcino Cat Café: Coffee and Paw-sitivity!

Capawcino Cat Cafe is genuinely one of the happiest places you can visit. Located above Mehedi Mart in Bashundhara, it’s the first ever cat cafe in Dhaka. You are immediately greeted with a burst of life upon entering the cafe with its rooftop setup, refreshing decor and paw shaped stepping stones that lead you to the main attraction of the cafe: a cat zone with around 20 cats! Much like some of the rescued felines the cafe cares for, their story to better days too is filled with highs and lows and we caught up with Rahat Rahmam, the founder, to uncover it.

Bring your pets too at the Pat a Pet Cafe

In Bangladesh, most cafes and restaurants do not allow pets. Even if they do, there is no proper accommodation for those pets to settle in or for them to not be considered as being disruptive by others. Pat a Pet Cafe is fighting this notion by providing a safe and comfortable space for animals and people. With a friendly staff and the entire building being animal-friendly, with the added benefit of PAW Foundation being one floor below, this cafe is the perfect place for any animal lover. What makes this cafe more welcoming is that you can also bring in your pets.
