Gatos y Galletas

Cats And Cookies

One of the first cat cafes opened in Taiwan in 1998.   They became popular with Japanese tourists as well as the local people in the area.   The idea was taken back to Japan where they became very popular.  Japan now has over 150 cat cafes.


Since then, cat cafes have spread throughout the world, including to the United States.   The first cat cafe opened in Oakland, California in 2014.   Now over a dozen  have opened across the country.


Julia Grueskin is the creator of Gatos y Galletas.   She is a culinary artist and yoga instructor with a love for cats, food, and yoga.     The purpose of this cat cafe is for people to enjoy great food and yoga in the company of sweet and loving cats, and to contribute something special and unique to the wonderful Albuquerque community.  The cats are rescues from Desert Paws, and are all available for adoption.


We also do catering for corporate lunches, private events, and parties, as well as menu planning and personal chef meals! We can even host your next birthday party or special event! Please contact us with any inquiries!
