Here you can always get a healthy lunch; they often make gluten free cakes and treats as well. Staff are super friendly and will always accommodate; for instance replacing bread with a special salad or so. I really like their coffee here, too. It can...More

Coffee is very good. The Breakfast isn't bad. Staff are very pleasant. The place is however quite small.

I love this quirky place, food is fresh and delicious, coffee is excellent! Staff are nice. It's great for brunch, price is average but I think it's worth it! Will be back again!

Really busy, you realize this must be pretty decent. Well it is . Excellent coffee, sublime sandwiches as mentioned. Very interesting fillings not the boring norm in the least. Can't wait to go for an other visit as the rest of the menu looked great.

Near the college and the botanical garden, Black Bear Cafe is a good option to have morning coffee in a cozy place. Highlight for the vegan delicous options.

Food is delicious, and a good portion size too. In fact, the poached egg on bagel is enough to share. A nice wee selection with something for everyone. Very reasonably priced, and a lovely atmosphere too. For a place that's so cosy, I never feel...More
