Comic-Con International: San Diego can get very hectic. So, if you're looking for a chill place to drink a coffee and decompress for about hour or so, what better place to go than The Cat Café?

Throughout July 21-24, aka the duration of Comic-Con, the Cat Café is offering a deal where you can enjoy a beverage or food item while you chill with some cats in the play pen for 50 minutes. Because they get so busy (and because they limit the amount of patron in the play pen to 10 people), they highly recommend making a reservation. Each reservation is $25 (adults and kids), and every child must be accompanied by at least one adult.

The Cat Café is only a 10-minute walk from the San Diego Convention Center (it's located on Island Ave), and it promises award-winning locally roasted coffee from Café Virtuoso, pastries from Bread & Cie, cookies from the Cravory, and other items from Sunshine & Orange as well as some furry cat companions to hang out with you.

What makes this experience even more exciting is that some of the cats are available for adoption, which the café receives from The Rescue House.

If you want to check out the place before you commit, check out the livestream of the Cat Café and see patrons hanging out with the cats!

Visit the Cat Café at 302 Island Avenue, San Diego, CA 92101 in Suite 101.
