Mount Purrnon Is a Must-Visit Cafe for Cat Lovers at The Esplanade

We’ve all dreamed of the magical cat cafes that are popping up across the country, and the time has finally come – Mount Purrnon is now open in Alexandria! This new cat cafe aims to provide a safe environment for cats to roam, interact, and hopefully head to a loving home as adoption is a huge part of their mission.

While we are definitely more so heading to Mount Purrnon to cuddle with some cats, their food is a big draw too! If you start your day out with them the peaches and cream overnight oats are an early favorite. For lunch grab the prosciutto and mozzarella on a baguette or the maple carrot and goat cheese grain bowl, you won’t be disappointed. 
Cookie dough lovers are also in luck because they’re serving up edible cookie dough. An afternoon filled with cats and cookie dough? What dreams are made of. 

But there’s an added twist at this fun location – they’re currently awaiting their permit to transform it into a wine bar as well. Kittens and cabernet? Yes, please!
