Coffee Cats on Abbott

At the recommendation of a friend I ventured over to the upper east side of south anchorage to "Coffee Cats". It is a cute little place, 6 little tables, 4 of which line up along the wall bench. There is also a taller table in the conner near the door and in the back some black leather or leather synthetic couches. Radio is on playing a local station, 105.7...sounds like hits of the 80's 90's and today sorta station since cyndi lauper is the current artist playing.

I am the only one sitting in here but there seems to be quite a bit of foot traffic stopping in so it is keeping the barista busy between stocking cups and napkins and wiping down already clean counters. I have been talking to her between customers and blasts of cold air from the door opening and closing. The owners originally opened the place to highlight local coffee roasters. They had a roasting business as well. They sold the Coffee Cats store and kept the roasting business but have since closed that or sold it...I missed that part of our conversation. Anyway they now are using Kaladi Brothers Coffee, although they have plans to switch to a local independent soon.

I don't know if this is a great place for really reading or studying with the amount of foot traffic and loud radio but the coffee is good and the costco muffin is fresh. There is quite the selection of coffee flavors and they also sell smoothies and juices. They also appear to have an assortment of soups if I am reading the sign right 12oz for $5.75.

Friendly place for sure, good coffee...cute...but loud. All in all 3 full cups: U>U>U> (it would have been 3 and 1/2 but taylor swift just came on the radio).
