This coffee house is a dream for any cat lover. Two Wrasslin’ Cats itself has a cute and cozy atmosphere. It’s super welcoming from the moment you pull up! Many people are drawn in by its colorful exterior.
Once you get inside, there is cat decor galore. The decor is all unique, and it almost has a thrift or antique store feel to it. Every decoration inside is definitely unique! Some of the cat art on the walls is even for sale!
They have a variety of seating available from outdoor seating to indoor seating. If the weather is nice, the outdoor seating is a great option! There’s seating by the entrance, on the back deck, and at picnic tables near a fountain decorated with cats.
The indoor seating is also really nice! I recommend getting a spot close to the wall by the fireplace so you can watch the kittens play while you eat. However, there’s no bad seat in the building!

If you’re looking to get breakfast, the cafe’s breakfast sandwiches do not disappoint. When I went, I got Howie’s Western sandwich, which featured scrambled eggs, ham, roasted red peppers, red onions, and cheddar cheese.
If Howie’s Western isn’t your cup of tea, there are other options on the menu. Some other options are the Littermate, Kitten Classic. The Littermate features scrambled eggs with a choice of either cheese or meat. The Kitten Classic features scrambled eggs and your choice of meat and cheese. These are great options if you’re looking for a classic egg sandwich.
Another option is Harry’s Start. If you’re into spicy food, then I’d recommend giving this sandwich a try. It features scrambled eggs, a sausage patty, jalapeños, and American Cheese. It has the perfect amount of heat to it!
It’s also worth noting that there are several options for breads and bagels that you can get your bagel on. I love being able to personalize my sandwich! They were even great about my mom who is low-carb, they served her everything you’d get on a Western in a bowl for her.
Another important thing to note is breakfast is served until 11am! So if you’re looking for breakfast, be sure to get there before 11!

The Furry Curry Chicken Salad has diced chicken, apricots, raisins, pecans, and mayo. The Calico Chicken Salad has diced chicken, Granny Smith apples, craisins, pecans, and mayo. It’s definitely not your typical chicken salad!

The Wrasslin’ Cats’ Lounge
Before I visited, I did not expect to be able to hangout with cats! After we had paid for our food, the owner told us to let him know if we wanted to play with some kittens. We of course said yes!
The Wrasslin’ Cats’ Lounge is a pretty decent sized room on the front of the building where you can go hangout with real life cats! When we went, there were five absolutely adorable kittens. we were actually able to watch them playing from where we sat in the coffee shop!
We all had the absolute best time hanging out with the kittens in the lounge. The were such friendly kittens and they were little purr babies.
The cats were coming up to us, laying in our lap, and we got lots of kitty kisses from the kittens! This lounge alone is a huge reason to visit this small town coffee shop. We didn’t want to leave!
