We are pleased to announce that Three Cats Cafe is becoming Three Cats, a full-fledged restaurant and bar. Mary Liz Curtin has teamed up with Matt Prentice and they created a unique place unlike any other. Three Cats serves American-style cuisine as small plates with a twist in a modern and engaging space. And when we say engaging, we mean it. You like the table you’re dining on? You can buy it right there. The chairs your family is sitting on over brunch? You can take those home, too. It’s a fusion of fine dining and retail, all in the most eclectic environment around.

Mary Liz Curtin and Matt Prentice are two of the three cats in Three Cats. The third cat won’t come out for photos or interviews which suits him just fine.

Three Cats History

Husband-and-wife owners of Leon & Lulu, Mary Liz Curtin and Stephen Scannell, bought a former movie theater next to their store in Clawson five years ago. That theater opened as The Show at Leon & Lulu, a quirky store selling greeting cards, Michigan-made products, unique furniture, and Detroit’s Theatre Bizarre merchandise.

The old 1940s theater is brought back to life as black & white movies play all day while customers shop, dine, and sit with friends. The menu is updated daily and offers “fresh and light” foods.

The front of The Show became Three Cats Cafe, an Art Deco-inspired lunch spot with soups, sandwiches, pastries, and delectable coffees. And now, Three Cats Cafe has become Three Cats.
