The Alley Cat Café

Coffee Shop
120 W Laurel St (in alley btwn Mason & College)
Fort Collins, CO 80524



  • I think all the baristas are "medicated", couldn't remember my order for the life of them, & then apologized for making the wrong drink but said, "you'll like it anyway". WTF?
  • If I should ever become an insomniac again, The Alley Cat will be where I watch the sun rise and listen to the birds sing their good morning songs rather than from my couch watching infomercials.
  • Best chai in town
  • Iced red eye cat, ask for a little less sweet. Perfect.
  • Try Red City Chai on Thursdays, $3.50 for a great dirty Chai!
  • Places to Eat in Fort Collins.CHECK 'EM OUT >>
  • Awesome here! Excellent jumbo cookies and impeccable milkshakes!
  • Great place to study!!
  • It's one of the few places open 24 hours in Fort Collins.
  • It gets packed on school nights- if bringing a laptop, be prepared with a charged battery in case you have to wait for a seat near outlets.
  • Awesome bike racks. Hang on the hook, lock through your frame and around the chain.
  • Lovely, whimsical atmosphere. I've spent so many dates, get togethers, and study sessions here I lost count. There's not many places as non-judgmental and easy going as the Alley Cat. Everybody <3 it
  • Also a inexpensive place to print, or gain quick internet access for emails, etc. with: eNotz public access computers & print system.
  • Definitely get the chai shake in the summer time. It's magic in a cup.
  • BEST Matte Latte dream come true in a cup!
  • Use a VPN and your own DNS server when using the Internet here. It's a completely open and often hostile network. Also, the OpenDNS filters are aggressive (HuffPost is blocked...)
  • The house chai (AKA sweet chai) and the chai milkshake (only available during summer) are THE BEST. During finals, make sure to arrive early and stake out a table - they fill up quickly!
  • The Coffee is wonderful so try it
  • Great little spot for a coffee shop. The iced honey lavender latte was exactly what I needed.
  • Absolutely love this place! Such a sweet hidden gem of a coffee joint and general chill place. And after ten years of not being back in Fort Collins, how the hell did I forget to go!!!???
