A Steampunk Infused Coffee Shop focused on Community
-Dapper Cat Coffee-
First of all, it must be noted that we are NOT a cat cafe. The name comes inspired by the owner's tubby cat Romeo who is quite dapper.
The mission of the Dapper Cat is to provide a unique and comfortable opportunity for community via delicious coffee drinks and a steampunk atmosphere.
We are based in a neighborhood that is looked at with disdain due to high levels of poverty, crime, homelessness, and prostitution. Our hope is that by establishing a positive business that welcomes all into community, we can change the stigma that the South Central Neighborhood has on it from one of darkness and scarcity, to one of light and uniqueness.
The Dapper Cat focuses on creating carefully crafted beverages of the caffeinated variety while having a space that is comfortable and open to all. Our coffee is sourced from a local roasters and our baked goods from your neighborhood bakery. We have regular community building events such as board game competitions, local art exhibits, open mic nights, and much more!
We believe that the combination of coffee, treats, and a good atmosphere helps to foster relationships and community. This then contributes to changing people's perceptions of a particular area.
