Individually brewed beverages. Friendly staff. Nice digs. Enjoyed the reading room in the back. Forgot to bring a book? No problem, they have some to share (and buy if you like it a lot).

Eclectic coffee shop. But you don't have to drink coffee to enjoy this place. Go for the homemade Carmel rolls - the best I've ever eaten - or their fabulous lemon bars! You need to call ahead to order them or get there really early or you're out of luck - they only make a certain amount each day.

The Black Cat has excellent coffee. A good thing in a coffee shop. Nice, freshly made food with local products.

This place would fit to a tee ..a great coffee shop! Spacious interior with plenty of space to sit & sip coffee with a pastry & newspaper or good book! Seating outside where typical discussions over coffee were occuring. Next to a great food co-op & fantastic bakery across the street! Could fit in at Berkeley CA or New York...yet... More

A great place to eat and great coffee. Breakfast was wonderful. Mushroom Swiss quiche was delicious and they have a different quiche every day. A must stop in Ashland.

Great eclectic coffee shop! Had super coffee and a wonderful breakfast sandwich made from all fresh ingredients on awesome bread. The young man that waited on us was very friendly and had a great sense of humor. Good coffee, good food and nice people. What more could you ask for.
