Had great espresso here! Friendly service, and a nice shaded patio out back. You can buy ground coffee or espresso as well and take it home - yum!

Stopped by for breakfast with the canine crew and were pleased to find a garden setting in the back to accommodate our pups. The breakfast burritos are quite satisfying, your choice of carnivore for the bacon lovers or veggie for the plant lovers. All the coffee choices you could imagine were available poured by an amiable staff. If you do... More

Terrific coffee and very good burritos, scones and quiche. Small but big enough. Just the place to get started in Bishop!

Ordered a mocha and if I were in the Bay Area, it probably would be a 4.0/10. I ordered a bagel toasted with cream cheese. It tasted like a bagel you would buy in a 6 pack at safeway and the cream cheese was from a small packaged individual sized serving (not fresh). My wife ordered the vegetable focaccia and... More

Friendly service (not sure about the guy who gave up, I go there every time I'm in town and I've NEVER had a bad experience) and the BEST coffee you will taste not only in the Inyo County area or Eastern Sierras... but truly great coffee no matter WHERE you're from. I live in the city, I've been to Europe,... More

Probably lots of other reasons to like this place, but all I went for was great espresso pulled from freshly roasted coffee beans, and that's what I got. Solid place.

Good coffee, terrible service. After 11 years, I’ve given up on Black Sheep because of the poor service. It’s been a comedy of Dumb and Dumber, or maybe Stoned and More Stoned. Here are some examples. When ordering a pound of beans, I’d ask for #3 grind. Not one time did they do it right. The first time I only... More

After a week of disappointing americanos, it was nice to find a coffee shop with a decent roast and a proper pull. Prices are extremely fair and the snacks were tasty.

This place was like a home away from home when it came to coffee. Great staff, and a great group of patrons as well. Try their pastries, too.
