Delicious espresso drinks

Not only are their espresso drinks excellent on the East Side, they rival the highest rated coffee shops in any big city. Not only are their drinks exceptionally delicious, the prices are way better than that national chain down the road.

I dread coming to the US not least because I know I'm going to have to survive without a decent coffee, so you can imagine my surprise in coming to Bishop, Calif (where I hear you ask?) And having the best coffees I've ever had in the US. Black Sheep is the pick of Bishop's coffee shops. Luney Bean, the... More

We enjoyed the delicious coffee and scones at this friendly little coffee emporium. Right on Main Street and with varying seating options, the Black Sheep is popular with climbers and locals. I like to get fresh roasted coffee beans for use at home.

This is our go to place for coffee in Bishop. Nice ambience with local artist displays. I go here to get beans as well...they will see you less than a pound at a time, unlike the place across the street...what are you going to do with a pound of espresso anyway?

In my opinion this is the most happening place in Bishop California with excellent Artesan coffees. Will definitely revisit over and over again.

I visited the Black Sheep several times last week for a place to have a good coffee and a place to sit and read. Enjoyed the back outdoor patio for sitting and sipping my coffee. Had great chats with some of the locals.

I requested a double shot 8oz breve and was treated to an angry sounding explanation of what breve means. If you can get past the attitude of the server, the breve was excellent. Nearly as good as Steam Dot in Anchorage, but then we are coffee snobs here in Alaska.

The Black Sheep's coffee isn't just suprisingly good for the tiny town of Bishop--it's some of the best coffee I've had anywhere. The place also has a great vibe and impeccable service. I wish we had a Black Sheep in Minneapolis.
