“Good food in a nice small restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2014

We went to eat there last night a group of 6 people. Its a restaurants with Latin Food with modern twist. The food is excellent, the presentation beautiful. We had the Braised Oxtail Stew that was outstanding, Our friends had other dishes that were good.
Its a BYOB place. the price is moderate the service excellent, apart for the server the owners came by to ask if all good. I will highly recommend.

“We bring all of our guests to this tasty byob in fairmount”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014 via mobile

The gourmet Latin inspired food here is the star, but the easygoing atmosphere, knowledgable waitstaff and creative deserts (try the flaming heart if they have it) all fight for your attention. This is the spot we bring our nearest and dearest when they visit for a fool proof good time!

“Fresh flavors in generous portions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

This is a great brunch spot. The space is sunny and the staff are very friendly; it feels like a family-run place. The fresh juices and soups are delicious, and the juevos rancheros and breakfast burrito will feed two people each. The watermelon salad is crisp and refreshing. Just so you know: it's cash only and BYOB.

“Excellent food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2014

First time visit to Blue Cat was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The wall mural sets an upbeat hip vibe, which continued with a menu of latin favorites with a twist. The black bean soup is luscious and rich with the perfect balance of spice. NIce take on fish tacos with a change up using lightly fried oysters. Finale included a coconut rum bread pudding with a generous dollop of real whipped cream. Flavors were fresh and bright . We will definitely return.

BYOB and cash only...worth every penny and then some!

“Have the black bean soup”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

We visited for the brunch, but stayed and returned for the black bean soup. This nice little restaurant serves a short menu of soups and sandwiches and meals with a cuban twist. They are BYOB and cash only, but well worth a visit if you like some latin spice in your food.
