Now Open: Mount Purrnon, a Cat Cafe in Alexandria


Like many other small businesses, Mount Purrnon’s opening was delayed when life took an unexpected turn this spring. But after a few more months of construction and safety-related prep, the cat cafe has finally opened its doors to the public—complete with coffee, wine, and, of course, adoptable kitties.

Felines roam the cat lounge, rubbing up against legs and nudging hands for pets. They’re all available for adoption, but even if you’re not in the market for a new pet, you’re still welcome to come meet the sweet critters. Then grab a drink in the cafe portion of Mount Purrnon, where sandwiches, salads, and snacks are also available. Rest assured that owners are taking every safety precaution necessary to ensure their patrons remain healthy and comfortable, and you can learn about the specific measures on their FAQ page.
