I waited for 40 minutes, no sign of any food at all..... How difficult it is to put a pastry on a plate??? when suddenly I... More

This is my second visit the the Black Cat and it's been just as great as the first! Huge selection of breakfasts, toasties, smoothies, cakes and hot drinks. Really friendly staff. Great value for money. Very clean too. I will definitely be coming back!

Good scrambled eggs, a veriety of delicious sandwiches with bacon, goat cheese, dates or pesto. Cat enthusiasts will love the pictures on the wall. Thei chai latte rocks, one of the best in... More

Over the years I've occasionally found myself at the black cat once or twice but recently I've been actively planning to go there. A small, simple cafe on the busy Mill Road of Cambridge, it's a subtle place you could easily miss. But it's the perfect place for breakfast. Their porridge is a good portion with cream and sugar provided... More

I've been to the Black Cat on many occasions, a lovely, humble little cafe serving great coffee and food. But yesterday's visit proved disappointing. Both drinks and food order were forgotten, had to wait an hour which is a bit much when all you want is breakfast. After chasing the order the result was obviously a hurried preparation as the...

fact: I ordered a fresh orange juice. I paid more than 3 pounds for a standard size glass of orange juice pre made (plastic jug under the leaking blender machine). why I'm disappointed: Seriously? more than THREE quid for a drink... you should give as minimum bigger size glass full of juice made just right under my eyes. customer service:...

Nice coffee, cake and snacks. A bit too trendy, but probably fine if you like that kind of thing. i.e. customers horrified by the sight of a pushchair.

One of the few cafes that offer a full english. They make their own beans and no one seems to eat them! Stick to heinz is what we say. Other than that it is a little over priced for what you get. I chose the mexican breakfast burrito and it wasn't enough to fill me up (I am petite). I... More
