Fourteen months later, Crumbs & Whiskers has reopened at 3109 M St NW, serving up the cat cuddles we desperately need. Book your 30-minute or 70-minute Instagrammable experience and test your post-pandemic social skills on some new feline friends (masks required during visit, regardless of vaccination status). If you don’t know the surprising story behind the cafe, check out our byGeorge blog on owner Kanchan Singh, who mapped out the entire business plan on a stack of United napkins on the way home from Thailand. She shares why she ultimately chose her true passion over cultural expectations and parental pressure, how she proved everyone who thought she was a ‘dumb Millennial chick’ incredibly wrong, and why adoption is at the center of it all.
