Summer highlight

Every year, once summer ends, I look forward to returning the following summer to the Cooperstown region, and one of the things I look forward to the most is eating at the Black Cat. Tony, the fantastic owner/host, is as knowledgeable about food as he is welcoming and fun to visit with. The baked... read more

Please remember this is a very small town and the small shops and restaurants that are very much dependent on travelers. Small space with decent food and service that says they are trying hard. Very pleasant if you have reasonable expectations.

Tony and the cats serve up some of the best sandwiches, baked goods, coffee and tea -- AND lunch boxes during the Glimmerglass performing arts season. Recently, the hours were extended, and particularly in the winter, when other Sharon Springs establishments shut down, Tony has offered pizza and cuban sandwiches for evening take-out (an interesting delivery option is available, I...

We wanted lunch out after a book fair and stopped by the Black Cat as several friends had said they loved it. We did not find it to our liking. We were given the specials but no prices for them. (It is so embarrassing to have to ask.) The tomato basil soup was over salted and served without any soup... More

We heard good things but found them not to be true in our case. The ambiance was good but my chicken salad had 3 pc.uncut lettuce, a quartered tomato and dry chicken with a small shot of dressing...all that for only $14 and tip. Other places in the area gave us unusual value for our dollar so I would not... More

Having stayed at the American Hotel (across the street) and feasting on breakfast - there was no chance of lunching at The Black Cat Cafe before we had to leave town to stay on our limited schedule. No worries. We were warmly greeted and informed that we could order for take-out and decided upon the Gorgowich, which was a green... More

We were returning home on US Rt. 20 when we noticed that time was running short and we decided it would be best to head for the NYS Thruway. So sad to travel the super higways and miss America. So...we turned onto Ct. Rt. 10 and doing so came into SHaron Springs, NY. Well to say luck was with us... More

We turned into Sharon Springs on a whim during a road trip through upstate New York in late March. We found a sleepy little town, and were surprised that there was a cafe that was open. Not knowing what to expect we went in for lunch, we ended up having a delicious and memorable experience. The food was absolutely wonderful... More

Great sandwiches. They have a variety of unique combinations. You can't go wrong. The atmosphere is friendly and neighborly.
