East Nashville is getting a pretty paw-some new business sometime later this year. The Catio is the joint product of a two Nashville locals wanting to offer something a little bit different.
Becca Lewis Skeels, who has been offering up vegan bakery treats under the name Leeuw Bake Shop, teamed up with Anna Talaga, a pet advocate, to create Nashville's first Vegan Bakery/Cat Lounge/Cat-Safe Plant Shop on Riverside Drive in East Nashville.
The Catio's Vegan Bakery will serve up treats that Becca's following has come to know and love - cupcakes, homemade Pop-tarts, cinnamon rolls, and other treats that are completely vegan....
AND LOOK DELICIOUS.
At the same time, The Catio will contain a Cat Lounge. They'll partner with local animal rescues to fill the room with adoptable cats, in hopes of finding homes for all of them. So, literally, you eat homemade pop-tarts and play with adorable kittens...WHAT COULD BE BETTER THAN THAT???
The Catio will open at 1603 Riverside Dr. at a TBD date.
