Cat & Cow Coffee unites Specialty coffee and delicious local food with a passion for Zero Waste.
Cat & Cow Coffee is not your regular coffee shop. However it might feel like a regular cafe, you will not find any single use plastics in sight!
We believe that change starts with small everyday steps. We designed our cafe to be fully Waste Free in the front of the house operations. Yes, that’s right, not a single disposable takeaway cup used since we opened in August 2019.
Aaaaand… then Covid-19 came. And turned all the cafes into Take Away only over night. It was a rough time for us and our ethos, when everyone started banning the reusables. We decided to close down for a week, take a few deep breaths and see what we can do to survive.
We decided to reopen after that week as a take away window, serving coffee & selling hampers to our local community. We felt overwhelmed with love and support from our amazing customers. We had to make the hard decision to introduce single use coffee cups into our operations. We were and still are accepting your clean keep cups and had no issues thanks our strict Health & Safety procedures and our mindful community.
The single use cups, we are using, are commercially compostable and recyclable in the yellow bin. We do charge 50c for every single disposable cup we sell and donate all proceeds to an ocean clean up initiative Take 3 for the Sea (https://www.take3.org/).
Now we are back to our full operation with limited seating inside open 7 days a week.
Thanks for your ongoing support and love for our environment, we could not be more grateful to be here.
