The Black Sheep is a great place for coffee, delicious pastries and breads, or a sandwich for lunch. Comfortable, relaxed atmosphere, just steps away from the Amherst Common.

Be prepared to have your socks knocked off by their great Croissant and Scones as well as their freshly-baked breads. Their deli sandwiches rate with the best NY deli's. Sunday mornings the resident Gypsy Wranglers liven the place up with some swingin' Gypsy Jazz.

The black sheep is a great spot to sit and chill, grab something to eat and drink. It's walking distance to the common and draws a mixed crowd.. Always packed but worth the visit..

...for a really great sandwich, for great coffee, for challah on Friday nights, for delicious European-style cakes and tortes, other baked goods. REALLY good fruit tortes! They'll do a dessert platter that stays in your dreams. There's also music at night. Lots of local color. Can't miss going here. People on comupters, people chatting,

I went to the Black Sheep for lunch on a Saturday. It was fine. Service was quick, despite the place being super busy. But the sandwich itself was nothing super exciting. Perfectly fine, but not amazing or spectacular.

If you're in town and want a quick, good sandwich, this is a great place to go.
