    3 Leg Cat Cafe

    3 Leg Cat Cafe is another great find for cafe nomads and photography enthusiasts. Despite the quirky name, there’s not even a fur of a cat spotted here as the interior is aesthetically decorated with Japanese anime figures and wooden-themed backdrop. If you’re looking for something simple yet fulfilling, opt for their shepherd's pie which sits beneath the glass shelve. Meaty concoction and mashed potatoes are wedged in a ceramic cup, and once it’s baked, a sprinkling of herbs complete the serving. One would be hard-pressed to find fault with this classic winner!
