The cafe is located in downtown Montrose. There are a few tables outside. There are a wide variety of items on the menu. We had the salads and they were all very good. The salads are served with a side of zucchini bread or whatever bread they have for the day. They also have a counter where you can get... More

I went to the Black Cow three times while on a trip visiting my family nearby and couldn't get enough. Both the fish tacos and the sand dabs were fantastic! Service was very personable and efficient, we were never left waiting. I would recommend to anybody as a must go establishment.

You will likely see a line at the door of this local place if you go on a weekend. If there is a wait, it is worth it. Go for it and you will be very happy with the wonderful food. This is the hard part: study the menu -- it is unusual and it will be hard to decide.... More

The Black Cow has an amazing and creative brunch menu. It has been a family favorite for years. It is always busy! Make a day of it by having brunch and then attending the Farmer's Market down the street.

Black Cow Cafe is especially good for lunch with a wide variety of menu items and a list of specials that change daily. Their butternut squash soup is very good, more of a puree than creamy although there may be some cream in it. Service is good to great, staff is very friendly. Passion fruit iced tea is excellent. We... More

Black Cow is a great restaurant in one of the cutest little towns in LA. Their breakfast is what we always go for and it never dissapoints. I also recommend their coffee, very good!

I looked on trip advisor before picking the Black Cow for breakfast today. I couldn't have been more disappointed. My breakfast with coffee cost $17.12. I'm not opposed to paying for quality but I didn't get it. I've had much better breakfast in many other places for less than $10. My waiter (male) took a while to take my order.... More

Parking- While driving on Honolulu, turn onto Market Street. There is a lot on the right hand side. Free parking lot for 3 hours. We arrived on Saturday at 11am. There was a wait and was told it would be 30-45minutes. But after just about 15 minutes, we were shown to our seats. I ordered the Cordon Bleu. I was... More
