After instigating more than 23 cat adoptions, changes are coming to Crumbs and Whiskers, the cat café at 3211 O St. NW that opened two months ago.
First, the price of admission has been increased from $10 to $15. On the bright side, Crumbs and Whiskers will now offer customers complimentary coffee and tea, with the option to buy pastries, prepared off-site by Pâtisserie Poupon.
To reduce overcrowding, the café will now limit the amount of customers allowed inside from 37 to 24. New seating is also available inside.
Despite the changes, cat cafes remain popular. There is now a fundraising campaign to start one across the river in Alexandria, Va.
