Very good

I like the food and location , I also like the fact that you don't have to wait to get seated and food comes out very quickly.

Menu selection is above average, wait time is acceptable, a bit of cleaning off table when still having coffee or just digesting,

Visited Black Walnut Cafe on Easter morning with my sister who lives locally and I LOVED it! The process of ordering may have been a bit overwhelming if I were there for the first time without my sister who knew the ropes, but once we were at our table I really enjoyed myself. The staff was very friendly and attentive... More

In my single years, I would have loved a place like the Walnut Café. While it is not a place for any particular age, the atmosphere invites communications and relaxation. Your seating could range from a large leather chair to a barstool. Pick your table and the conversation is yours. The food is lovely. Breakfast here is even more of... More

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.
