No one was surprised when we announced we were opening our own cafe. I’ve been baking and cooking for as long as I can remember, secretly creating vision boards and dream menus. What people were curious about was the name!
There’s not a week that passes by that we are not asked, “but why Fat Cats?”. Theories range from, “you must be loving cats” (not particularly :)) to “is this a pet shop / cafe?” (no, definitely not). To put to rest all these queries, let’s just say after weeks and weeks of putting forth every combination of cafe type name to my family and being unequivocally shut down on all counts, one day I lost my patience and said, “fine, then…let’s just call it Fat Cats!”
Now years later, we can’t imagine our little cafe as anything else.
