The 10 Best Designed Cafes in the World

#3 Romeow Cat Bistrot

Rome, Italy


Originating in Japan, cat cafes (or Neko Cafes) have become a covetable concept for coffee houses around the world.

We were particularly charmed by Italy's Romeow Cat Bistrot located, not surprisingly, in Rome, for its cat-savvy interior design.


Artistically-placed bookshelves and a tree in the corner provide a cat-savvy environment.

Designed by Tommaso Guerra, this cafe-bistro has been crafted to reflect a home. Large windows, a piano and soft furnishings adorn the space while a tree in the corner and book-inspired shelving make this quirky design a feline-friendly environment.


The six featured cats are able to roam the shop - bar the kitchen and food preparation areas of course - with certain corners blocked-off from customers so they can find respite if need be.
