Cats are cute and amazing. The place is simple but too small. You can't chill here cause there's only one table for all customers. The cakes tasted good, the cupcakes are so yummy

I love the cats and dogs they have. They have dogs outside the cafe. But the place is too small, we didn't stay for desserts/drink since it's a cafe, because there's no table available, they only had two customers taking the WHOLE two big tables and chairs. I hope they make the cafe bigger

After my lunch at Mister Kabab Middle Eastern & Mediterranean Cuisine Cubao Branch. I went to Bengal Brew, a cat cafe situated at the other side of Manhattan Parkview, Araneta Center, Cubao, Quezon City (it is the opposite side of Mister Kabab).

Before entering Bengal Brew, there's a cute white big dog resting at the glass door of the cat cafe. At first, I am hesitant to enter Bengal Brew, thinking the dog will bite me. I saw the staff of the cat cafe through the glass door and wave to him and then I point my finger to the white big dog and assisted me to enter the cat cafe. I told him "if the dog is friendly?", he answered back "yes". That's nice. 128054

While looking at the wall menu, I noticed the place have divisions. The main cafe, where I am standing and the cat room, where you can play with the cats. At the main cafe, where I saw the cute big white dog which is the Alaskan Malamute, knowing after I asked the breed of the dog to the server, I thought it's a husky. You need to pay for an entrance fee of Php400.00 to enter the cat room it comes with 1 choice of drink and 1 cake plus the chance to play with the cats. But I stay in the main cafe, I can see the cats through the glass window, playing with the guests under the big tree. Nice jungle interior set-up.128049

I got Swiss Choco-Coffee Cake for Php135.00 1108811088110881108811088️ 5/5 and Bio Reishi (Hot Coffee with Mushroom extract) for Php95.00 - 110881108811088️ 3/5 it taste like a 3-in-1 coffee 9749️ Toink! 128165

I asked the server if he can carry the cat for a picture, a very kind of him do it and post the cat with my order.

After the shot, I play with the Alaskan Malamute... Yes! He's friendly, he's not scary, I forgot his name though. 128514

For all the pet lovers out there you must try Bengal Brew. 128077🏼

Great drinks and food. Cozy and very earthy ambiance. And, of course, the main stars of the place, the cats. Yes, it's fun to feed them. Yes, you have gloves and actual spill proof mugs and other things to play with while you're in the cafe which is all grand, cute and cuddly.

What's bothering is the attitude of the cats. They might have been around people too long that they're not so friendly. They get friendly when you have food but they would rather stay in their spot and wait for the food to reappear with the next customer. maybe they should do a rotation of the cats. I'd suggest to expose some to customers for x amount of time while the others are kept away from them so they won't be so tired and grumpy.

We were on the hunt for coffee while roaming the busy streets of Cubao.  He said i should take a peek at Bengal Brew for Sari (Alaskan Malamute).

After taking a peak,  we decided to have coffee at Bengal and hang with the kitties.   We are the only customers that time,  we have all the kitties to ourselves.  There are a couple of new kittens - playful and full of energy.  The adult cats are not as energetic as the kittens,  they prefer lounging around the kittie bridges except for one - i think his name is Harry,  he likes to chill beside me for some reason.  And yes,  purrfect opportunity for a Cat Momma selfie. 

Note:  Bengal Brew's rates increased,  they now charge php 400 every weekend.  Weekday rates remain at php 350.

Hehe. Photo pretty much sums up how the cats were when we were there. Aligaga and all that haggardo versoza stuff haha.

This is Resiklo. When we got in, he immediately headed to his cat bed and drifted to a sweet slumber. The only moment he got up was when his fellow catz got into a fight (this gulat face was his reaction then, hindi na nawala right after kaya nap-selfie kami hahaha.) There were loooots of cats (you dont say), napagbabaliktad ko na nga yung names nila kasi magkakamukha na rin.

We actually got a word from the staff that most of the cats are tired and stressed already, probably because of the volume of people who came in the afternoon (we arrived after work). So you'll see cats who are already taking naps and hiding in (quite) peculiar places i.e. bookshelf (i mean why hide there when you have all the comfy couches? Haha!)

We were advised to take caution if we want to cuddle them. We fully understand that, because not all pets are immune to loooong human interaction hehe. There were even kids who were running, playing, and screaming at that time, which i think caused more stress to the cats. But despite the haggardo versoza mode of the mimings, we still managed to make new cat friends. Actually nabuhayan sila ng loob nung ifi-feed na namin sila hahaha.

We paid P350 for our visit. It's inclusive of one drink and meal for humans, and one meal for the kittycats (steamed chicken). They don't have soy milk so i just had bottled water for my drink. As for my meal, i had their spicy tuna pasta, keri lang yung lasa.

The place itself is nice. It's like real life Neko Atsume! And I just wanna stay there for lyf hahahaha. My colleagues and I decided that if we ever needed a breather, we will definitely go here (our hq is just across the building).

Btw, they have this point system which is convertible to cash. Before you leave, one of the staff will approach you to enter your phone number, and voila, you're registered. 128521

So cute but they're not malambing. They made me feed them with steamed chicken cos I went there 8:00 pm sakto for their feeding time. The fee is inclusive of a slice of cake and a drink. I love the iced Bengal brew . 128077🏼128568 looking forward to see their white/ snow Bengal cat arriving anytime soon. 128571

The Bengal Cat is a hybrid breed of domestic cat developed by selective breeding and interspecific breeding to evoke the feline denizens of the jungle such as leopards, ocelots, margays and clouded leopards. Bengal Cats were developed by the selective breeding of domestic cats with the Asian leopard cat (ALC), Prionailurus bengalensis, with the goal of creating a confident, healthy and friendly cat with a highly contrasted and vividly marked coat.

The name "Bengal cat" was derived from the taxonomic name of the Asian leopard cat (P. b. bengalensis). They have a "wild" appearance with large spots, rosettes, and a light/white belly, and a body structure reminiscent of the ALC. Once separated by at least four generations from the original ALC x domestic cat crossing, the breed possesses a gentle domestic cat temperament.

The growing popularity of cat cafés is spreading like wildfire.  I am a cat lady and it brings me great joy that there are places wherein cat lovers can go and hang with kitties.

Bengal Brew,  the first and only Bengal Cat Cafe in the world.  I've had the privilege to spend my Sunday with the Bengal Cats.  The cafe is located at Manhattan Parkview Residences in Cubao. 

This is best cat café I've been to.  The central theme of the cafe revolves around the type of cat they have.  Throw pillows in leopard prints,  Bengal themed music playing in the background,  a structure that resembles a waterfall and 15 Bengal Cats. The place is squeaky clean,  i like the fact that the floor is not carpeted,  it is more sanitary in my opinion.  The cats have their own holding area,  they get to go out to the play area when there are guests around.  This makes it easier for the staff to maintain the cleanliness of the cafe.  There are kittie bridges around the area where cats can hang.

I've always thought that this specific breed sports the same coat pattern (leopard-like),  but i was mistaken,  the patterns vary.  From the leopard like to the ones that resembles intricate indigenous patterns.  The cats are really friendly and playful especially the kittens.  Playing with ze kitties is fun and relaxing.  One thing i like about this cafe is you get to feed the cats,  the crew provides sandwich gloves and cat food. Guests can hand feed the kitties - this makes the experience more interactive.

Entrance Fee is php 350 with consumable food and drink.  The food is relatively good.  We ordered pizza,  spicy tuna pasta and coffee.  The space where they prepare the food is segregated from the play area,  cleanliness is guaranteed.  Food is served using plastic containers that resembles a dome.  Double tap on cleanliness folks!  

I spent x number of hours playing with the kittens,  hugged a couple of 'em.   First time to interact with Bengal Cats is one for the books,  this will be a weekly habit.
