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.

Really good quality coffee with some amazing pastries and goodies from a local bakery. Only one size of coffee offered. They do cold brew and have a selection of teas as well. I did hear they have a wine/beer bar upstairs now but, haven't checked it out.

This place is nestled in the outlet store, and when we visit the stores, it is a must for a coffee or espresso. It's as good if not better than the best brews you've ever had. Great for a little pick me up after skiing.
