What a wonderful place to grab a tea/coffee, a muffin or square, and in the nice weather, sit outside and watch the world and a multitude of dogs, go by. I have purchased the date squares, lemon bars and quiches to take home as well. Although a tad on the costly side, it was well worth the purchase. Enjoy!

Muffin & croissant combination with green tea filling is the best! Amazing baked goods always fresh. My workplace always selects black walnut for our morning meeting catering needs.

The visit was to meet a good friend for a coffee. The Black Walnut sounded interesting so we thought let's give it a try. The coffee was one of the worst I have experienced. It was lukewarm, lacked flavour and had an " oil slick " on the surface. I will not be returning.

This is a lovely cafe in the heart of Wortley village. It offers both indoor and outdoor dining. The croffin is the treat of choice.

They bake their own bread!! It is fantastic! Get the turkey Swiss or ham and Swiss.. Also their mustard is amazing too.. Also, great coffee.. Not a fan of their orange pekoe tea though.. And I wish they were open a lot later.. But definitely worth visiting

Stopped by for a sandwich and a lemonade--needed a break from unpacking! Absolutely fantastic turkey sandwich on fresh home made bread. Busy with constant customers moving through but the staff were very friendly and patient with everyone.

No matter what I tasted in this cafe is always fresh and delicious. Starting from the fresh bread and sandwiches to the soups, quiches and frittatas. I love to go there for a coffee on the weekends with my friends because we know we always have good quality food for a reasonable price. One negative point is that they close... More

I visit both locations on a regular basis and am totally addicted to the date scones - however, I wish the regular coffee was stronger. Service is always excellent.

this warm and visually attractive place bakes a number of unique pastries. The Cruffin as its called is a very tasty cross between a croissant and a muffin. It took my sister from BC to find this wonderfully tasty treat. I went the next day and bought 2 myself.

I'm a barista myself and had to check the place out simply because I haven't been. I judge a place by its coffee just because I've worked in the industry. I had a first date at the Richmond Street location. It was pretty crowded but the outside patio was free so we sat there. It was a little bit cold... More
