Tokyo's Animal Cafes, from Cats to Owls

Hosted by

Animal cafes, where patrons can sip coffee while cuddling with pets that are available for adoption, have been a minor trend in Los Angeles lately.

The concept of animal cafes started in Asia more than a decade ago. Writer Gideon Brower visited Tokyo recently, and discovered that while cat cafes remain popular there, some patrons have started moving on to more exotic alternatives.

See photos of the cat and owl cafes on the Good Food blog.
