Went looking for the Post Office, found free WiFi and GREAT COFFEE instead :)

Main Street, Mammoth Lakes is always worth a look. The Post Office is there. And across the road from that is this little coffee place. We love our coffee in Australia so Black Velvet just made our day. Free wifi as well. Very groovy little spot!

We are New Zealand and Australian coffee snobs. We usually order flat whites. Whilst there was no flat white on the menu the coffees we had were exceptional. Great space with all the classic hipster fare - craft beer, single origin chocolate for sale, cold filter coffee etc. We wish we found it sooner.

Of all places Mammoth? This place is not only incredible looking - under produced- minimal chic, ` but also the coffee was phenomenal. You could have a pour over coffee or a truly exquisite cappuccino. This cappuccino can only be compared to the greats like Blue Bottle coffee in NYC. Creamy, frothy, and perfect in every way.

Black Velvet Coffee has done it again. Not only is their coffee the BEST roast and brew in Mammoth, they have opened a Wine Loft just above the coffee bar. Comfy, cozy is the atmosphere, their wine selection is carefully procured from boutique CA wineries that will sure to please even the most particular wine palate. Check out Samsara, Melville,...

My favorite place in Mammoth Lakes for coffee. Very good and now they just opened a wine tasting bar upstairs. Looking forward to trying that.

Beautiful place. Great prices compared to Starbucks. Would have liked more choices for pastries and the wait at the end of the day is long. Just opened the wine bar upstairs last week and can't wait to try it on our next trip.

Black Velvet has without question the best coffee latte in Mammoth Lakes. Be patient, as service is counter only and can be slow when more than two or three are in line.

We love good coffee and consider ourselves maybe not experts but "knowledgeable." Our son and his wife liked the "brew of the day". I had a cappuccino...all were well made and delicious. Our son said it is "awesome." Service was hospitable and efficient. Nice coffee house feel.

Stopped in because we were staying around the corner. They take themselves way too seriously. I don't have a degree in coffee beans all I want is a nice cup of coffee. The coffee was ok and my wife's tea likewise. But it was about twice the price of the same in Starbucks. We won't return.

This is how a modern coffee bar should be: Great friendly service, lovely food and coffee- plus free wifi! The setting is modern with nice low key music. Very impressed - and will be back!
