Wine? Coffee? Food? Cats? You have come to the right place...Take a look at our Pittsburgh online visit planner to schedule your visit to Colony Cafe and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.
The mission of Colony Cafe is to offer a unique, fun, relaxing cafe for humans, while finding loving homes for Pittsburgh's at-risk cats.
What is important to know is that you can experience these things together or completely separate... The Cat Loft is upstairs behind glass and the coffeehouse/wine bar is downstairs and operates as a stand-alone cafe, offering snacks, lunch, bistro fare and a fine wine and specialty cocktail selection.
-Third Wave Coffee and espresso drinks available to-go or stay in a destination coffee shop atmosphere separate from the cats.
-Delicious Wine from an owner-curated selection, to enjoy along with savory snacks in a relaxed, neighborhood wine bar environment. We also sell bottles to-go.
-Cat Visits where you can spend time playing with about a dozen adoptable cats in a separate area of the cafe. You’re welcome to have coffee, wine and food while you lounge with the kitties if you like.
Colony Cafe Reviews

I work right up the street and go here about once per week because the food is awesome. Highly recommend the Tuscan Melt. Everything is always fresh and ready fairly quickly. The ambiance in the cafe.... more »
There are a few important things to note if you want to visit the cats. First, be sure to book in advance online. Otherwise, your chances of dropping in at a busy time may leave you very disappointed. Secondly, there is an upstairs loft with an entry fee to see the cats that must be booked in advance. There is also a downstairs fully functioning cafe with food, coffee and drink menus (no appointment necessary!) Both are great! Thirdly, I’d highly recommend reading the information provided prior to visiting. The cats are very well taken care of, so there rules to keep everyone safe. With just 15 minutes of forethought you can easily read the information and book a time to come. That is all that is required to really enjoy the Colony Cafe. I had an excellent time and would definitely recommend visiting! The staff were absolutely wonderful. Thanks!!
If you are a cat lover like me you will LOVE this place!! There's nothing better than enjoying coffee and cats for a good cause! It's such an inviting and cozy cafe, and the staffs are very friendly and welcoming. They treat customers like friends! Service is top notch. They had a good selection of coffee, cocktails & wines. Definitely a must visit cafe!
