Furbacher has partnered up with Sorelle Saidman, founder of the Rabbitats Rescue Society. The concept turned into reality after a number of successful bunny pop-ups were held at the University of British Columbia (UBC).

By creating a therapeutic space for visitors to interact with some adorable (and adoptable) bunnies, the cafe hopes to pave a new wave of rabbit rescue, adoption, and advocacy — and create a fun space for Vancouverites to visit and relax at.

The Bunny Cafe will be located at 1696 Venables Street on the southwest corner of Commercial Drive. Admission costs $15.95 (plus GST) per person, with visits lasting just under an hour, and bookings can be made online.
A number of COVID-19 health and safety measures are also in place. Face masks must be worn at all times while inside the space, hand-washing is required upon entry, and visitors must practice safe physical distancing from one another. Additionally, due to the ongoing pandemic, they’ll be opening as a retail space, with plans to transition into a vegetarian and vegan-friendly cafe.
Address: 1696 Venables Street
Hours: By appointment, bookings available online
