Scruffy's Cafe, Knoxville TN


Eat. Drink. Play. Adopt.

At Scruffy's, we are passionate about felines and local businesses. Our goal is to help cats find loving homes and to help humans find good snacks and cats to hang out with.

Ready to book?

We recommend you make your booking in advance to guarantee entry to our cat lounge.

Interested in partnering?

We are a new cafe in North Knoxville looking to partner with small businesses so that we can grow our menu (and our friends!) If you're a local artist looking to display and sell your work, or a local food vendor or performer, give us a shout! We value all talent -- this is what keeps Knoxville Scruffy!


We are more than just a cafe.

We are people focused and cat obsessed.

We want to help cats find loving homes and bring joy to all people.

Community togetherness is our first mission with mental health being our second. If you have struggles, you can shed them here. Please talk to our staff and use the phrase "feeling blue" if you need us. 

**Mental health initiatives and support groups coming**

“Cat lovers unite at Scruffy's Cafe.”
