Great menu for lunch or a casual dinner. Perfect for brunch. However, the outdoor seating needs some attention. The tables and particularly the chairs are plastered with bird droppings. Not particularly appetizing. A few table umbrellas and good daily wipe-down of the outside furniture would be a serious improvement for the customer experience.

Black Walnut Cafe has an upscale menu, full of breakfast, lunch, and dinner gems, great desserts, coffee to rival Starbuck's, and a comfortable atmosphere where you are comfortable eating and maybe reading a book and spending some time. Awesome place!

Lunch is just fantastic here. I'm a personal fan of their pastas, especially the Chipotle chicken pasta. Plus there's always cute chick's around as well haha

Had an early morning weekend breakfast there and, fortunately, we got there early enough to not have to stand in line. Twenty minutes later was a totally different picture. A line all the way out the door. Since this was our first time there it was kind of confusing about where to order. Once placing your order you're given a... More

This is an excellent place to have brunch. Sitting on the patio and people watching is the best. The whole menu is outstanding.

I loved the atmosphere was kinda taken back when I entered. There is not a sign to tell you to stand in line to place order and I just sat down thinking someone would come to me. It was okay once I figured it out. Would be nice to have a host or someone to give the newbies like me... More

I was not expecting to have to order at a counter. However I had a cast on my hand and the staff was very accommodating and help me get the food to my table. Large portions and appetizing. Popular spot.

This restaurant offers a great environment for a casual breakfast where you can group up or tuck away in a corner. The menu is bountiful and the food is mouthwatering!

Eggs Benedict (cheeseburger)was so Good. I knew the food was good due to the line out the door. The wait was about 10 minutes to place and less than 10 foe the meals to be ready. Make sure you get here by 1000 to get a seat. The pancakes were good with maple syrup. The cafe has many deserts if... More
