The Lucky Cat Café is a restaurant owned and operated by Aunt Cass in Disney's 2014 animated feature film, Big Hero 6, and its subsequent TV series. It is also the place where she, along with Hiro, Tadashi (until his death), Baymax and Mochi reside.
The café is open for business every day. It gets its name from the Japanese Bobtail breed of cats, who are known as symbols of fortune in Japan. This is evidenced by the Japanese Bobtail figurine on display above the café's entrance and motif in the interior.
While the café itself is downstairs, Aunt Cass, Hiro, Baymax, Tadashi, and Mochi live in the upstairs apartment. This portion of the building consists of a living room, kitchen, one master bedroom, and an attic.
The café is also where Aunt Cass does her "stress eating" after picking up Tadashi and Hiro from the police station after the bot fights.
Places of interest
- Café: On the lowest level of the building, the café is where Cass caters to her patrons. It is also a popular hangout spot for Hiro and his friends. Mochi can typically be found sleeping somewhere in this space.
- Attic: The shared bedroom of Hiro and Tadashi, prior to the latter's death. A majority of the space belonged to Hiro, while Tadashi's portion was sectioned off by a shoji door (his belongings remain intact even months after his passing). Baymax currently resides in the room alongside Hiro.
- Aunt Cass's Room: Where Cass resides. She keeps most of her cat-based artwork and paraphernalia here.
- Garage: This mainly functions as a storage unit for the Hamada family, as well as Hiro's private lab. A number of Hiro's inventions were created here, including the Microbots, Big Hero 6's battle armor, and Mini-Max. Like the café, this occasionally acts as a hangout spot for Hiro and his friends.
- On select evenings, Cass hosts poetry nights in the café.
- A Lucky Cat Café shop can be seen in Little Rodentia in Zootopia.
