Nothing better than a good cup of Hot Tea or Coffee.. But what can ruin any sip, or trip, is the approach of the staff that work there. I ordered a Coconut Matte Tea with a Shot of Expresso. Perhaps this may not be your typical order, but it sounded good to me, so why not? After all, I am... More

Very cool spot. Awesome cold brew setup, which looked like something out of a science lab. Also had some very nice craft beers on tap! The staff were very friendly and the service was great. If you are looking for an excellent coffee, or beer (or wine) in a laid back, friendly environment, be sure to check this place out.... More

Strong, smooth and delicious cold brew. Great iced "cocoa" (tasted like Mexican hot chocolate). Staff was friendly and helpful. Would definitely go again.

A coffee bar should have great coffee and this one certainly does, we travel to Italy often (the home of great coffee) and this was as good as the Italians!

In that I am a local in town, I have the option to go for my Espresso at any number of places. Some places have more verity of foods to purchase. However, if I just want a great cup of coffee, Cappuccino or espresso, I prefer Black Velvet because of its exceptional taste, freshness and over as value.

I discovered this place on our 2nd day of vacation and went back every day after! The cappuccino is perfection. Their high quality coffee is well crafted and $3 for a small cappuccino it beats Starbucks hands down. Their maple waffle and lavender biscotti is also yummy!

Just had a mocha cappuccino but it was like the ones in New Zealand. Perfect! The atmosphere was also delightful to discuss our business. Next time I'm going to also try the food. Looked good,

Black Velvet coffee has grown into a warm and inviting stop, whether for coffee, with a pastry perhaps or a lovely spot to have a glass of wine upstairs. They cover the beginning of a ski day or the aprs ski time. Hip, full of energy but a relaxing, easy vibe too. Every cup of coffee I've had begins with... More

I visited with family last year when we took a break from the campground and cold weather. I really enjoyed my coffee. The service was great.

Totally the best coffee in Mammoth Lakes. I just noticed on my last trip that Black Velvet added an upstairs wine tasting bar. We came back later in the afternoon and had a great experience. Love the loft which has a large table, view and comfortable chairs. We had a group of 10 and fit perfectly. The staff is friendly... More
