“A great little cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

Ate brunch in this busy little cafe on a Saturday morning. We had excellent pancakes and eggs benedict. There was also some very good brown bread and a good big pot of tea. Service was excellent. If it's a warm day I'd recommend the small sunny outdoor area at the rear.

“Brunch-tastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Went to Black Apple Cafe for brunch yesterday and will definitely be back. The menu is great, the food is delicious, the cakes and desserts are all amazing (I particularly recommend the olive oil cake!) but the atmosphere and friendly and attentive staff really seal the deal.
On a side note, the music was a hit with all of us; relaxing with friends and food and listening to Johnnie Cash and Fleetwood Mac - what a perfect weekend brunch experience :)
