Eaten twice here and will continue to do so. Lunch menu is perfectly designed sourced locally, fresh and well presented. Staff very pleasant and attentive. Lovely coffee with double shots!

Normally I love having breakfast here and can't fault it, however I thought I would try something different when I came yesterday. I had the eggs royale and my boyfriend had the eggs benedict. The poached eggs weren't runny and the food was cold. Nobody checked back on us and the waiter didn't really seem too interested. Hoping this is... More

Popped in for coffee and cake. Both very good and interesting and tasty choice of things to eat. Atmosphere good, as is decoration and seating. Would have been better if the staff had smiled a bit a bit and engaged with their customers. For example, when waiting for the till to churn out a receipt, the waiter (looking bored and... More

Black Dog, was recommended to us by locals who told us we could expect great coffee and breakfast. They weren't wrong. I will admit to being a coffee snob and was overjoyed to be served a smooth long black just the way I like it. The service was friendly and relaxed, with staff happy to answer my questions regarding the... More

They really have: this place has finally nailed the perfect coffee shop experience. Excellent table service; food that is cooked perfectly every time (I go every other day); the best coffee I've had to date. Love this place!

The flat white here is unbelievable, perfect temperature, size, and taste. They do a decent eggs Benedict too. A must visit for T Wellians who love coffee.

The Black Dog serves the best cortado I've had outside Spain. It's wonderful. It also serves Silver Needle tea for that afternoon treat. The carrot cake is almost as good as my mother's. The Eggs Benedict is as Eggs Benedict should be. Really love the vibe, too. It's indie and it's friendly and the clientele is mixed. There's nowhere else... More
