Cuddle with cats.

If you haven’t stopped by the new Cat Cafe Maui, it’s a must! It’s $18 for kamaʻāina for a 50-minute slot which comes with a complimentary coffee or tea—a deal considering how much we spend at Fun Factory or other activities with our kids. Kids (and parents!) will delight in engaging with the cats in a safe, clean environment. The cafe supports Maui Cat Rescue, a nonprofit that facilitates adoptions, so guests also have the option to give a cat a furever home. The weekend reservations fill up, so book early or try a weekday.

  • Cat Cafe Maui, Queen Ka’ahumanu Mall, Kahului
  • $20 per 50-minute slot, $18 kamaʻāina (with ID)
  • Open every day 11am-5pm (last reservation is 4pm)
