The Black Cat Café is owned and run by PALS, a nonprofit animal rescue organization. Although every dime we make goes directly to the 600 homeless animals we save every year, we also know that our café succeeds because it is an awesome place to eat. Styled around the cafes of the South of France, our menu is eclectic and ever changing with many vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options in addition to our regular menu. We have won Best of the Main Line 3 times. Chef Judy Clemens puts out a breakfast, lunch and brunch that cannot be beat and all profits go to saving lives. And don’t miss our gift shop, featuring home goods and more featuring pets.

Food was great. Loved the small converted home and the chance to see three kittens available for adoption. Proceeds go to charity. Well worth the visit!

Quaint cafe that the proceeds support a cat rescue. The decor is adorable- part French country, part cat lady in great taste. The sandwiches are great, especially the gourmet grilled cheese. And save room for dessert

Fun place for lunch/breakfast. We like to help support organizations that help cats. This is a fun way to donate.
This is a cute restaurant with very good food and great service. Every table is different and is set up so cute.
I love the gift shop. Great gifts at very low prices.
The only thing I would change is to have more cats around that we could pet.

Good food and great service. Interesting concept as personnel are volunteers and proceeds go to a no-kill animal shelter. Just be aware that there are cats, in cages for adoption, so if you’re allergic, be aware.

Good food, even for my friend who is a vegan, and love the fact that all profits go to PAWS cat rescue.

Thank you so much for the review! Just so you know its PALS rescue not paws. But we love Paws rescue too. Please let the Chef know when you are here next, so I can come out to say hi. We like to get to know all our guest.
