Austin’s anticipated cafe devoted to felines and coffee, Blue Cat Cafe, is now armed with a colorful food truck set to serve vegan fare. Originally, vegan comfort food trailer Arlo’s was set to partner with Blue Cat, but dropped out to hole up at nearby Drinks Lounge. Gray decided to buy and run her own food trailer in the space, using substitute meats from BBQ Revolution.
The grand opening, looking to be in mid-October, is getting close, now that the cat palace has refurbished floors, murals, stage, and new cat toys. Soon, there will be a super cat highway, shelves, and giant tree. Founder Rebecca Gray, who raised money for the project through Kickstarter, is still hiring hosts, baristas, hosts, and more. Plus, there’s another cat art party for Kickstarter backers on Sunday, September 27 from 2 to 5 p.m.
