“Authentic cafe with excellent coffee and cakes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2015

With an original decoration, Black Cat Cafe is an excellent option to discover the pure Cambridge. Delicious coffee and cake, with good music and a large window to enjoy the sun.

“Great coffee, good breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2015

Casual, low-key vibe, great coffee with good variations and creative twists on regular breakfast offerings. French toast wasn’t on the menu but I asked if I could possibly get it and they made it for me, which was very kind.

“Cafe with a difference”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2015

This cafe has been around for years. Testament to its endurance. Others come and go but The Cat stands firm. I love the interesting variety of food offered as specials which stand alongside the standard regular menu. The Black Cat Big Breakfast can't be beaten for quality and price.And I loved the Sticky Black Rice with coconut and mango I had the last time I was here. I was a bit disappointed it wasn't on offer when I visited Cambridge last week.The chorizo and potato hash I had on Saturday is pretty good as was the roast pork with apple and Bourbon compote I had for lunch the next day. And the coffee, still roasting their own after all these years and it is still better than the majority of other coffee around Cambridge. Of course the cakes are as ever imaginative and tasty. The fact that this little cafe is still bursting at the seams on the weekend can only be a good sign. Keep up the good work.

“Nice little place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2015

Had brunch here. Would recommend it for brunch. Nice variety and the big breakfast is pretty good quality. Interesting looking selection on the specials. Friendly staff even though it was really busy. Good coffee too which is always a plus for me.
