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.

    This place could be so much better. The servers don't work together. NO ONE wants to sit with an empty tea glass at Sunday lunch. Owner/manager should not be doing job interviews at Sunday lunch. Seriously!

    I ordered a Pancake board for 2 people. Very generous board (oversized pancakes) - easy to feed 3 or 4 people. Fresh fruits, different options to create your own pancake. The pancakes are delicious, warm and soft inside. The batter is definitely homemade. There’s also an option gluten free. For non vegan/vegetarian, I have no stronger words to describe how their US bacon is so good. Perfectly cooked and crunchy. Yummy. You will never regret having a plate of bacon at the Black Cat Café. Best choice for a nice morning breakfast or brunch!

    We stopped in for a late lunch and were not disappointed! The strawberry salad was fresh and satisfying, also had a half turkey panini - which was crispy on outside and delicious! I love sitting in the front window table - can’t wait until the weather warms up for the outside seating!

    Well, I have not been to such an utterly charming spot in years! The food was great. The place is so nice on the inside. Comfy and cozy but very socially distanced. The Cafe is affiliated with PALS cat rescue which is something dear to my heart. I understand they do lunch and that their sundaes are absolutely amazing! They have a slice of homemade cake in them. Can't wait to go back. I absolutely loved everything about it!!! All proceeds go to the cat rescue so great food in a wonderful spot that helps find kitties great homes. A win-win!

    Cute non-profit which is very eclectic. Don't go here if you are allergic to cats as they have actual live cats in cages to be adopted. They have gluten-free pancakes and French toast which is a big plus

    I’ve been here before and loved it. However, this trip was rather ruined by a stressed out manager who we could here yelling at the front of the house and back of the house. If it were for her constant yelling, it would have been a much better experience. We were supposed to bring friends with us. I’m so thankful that they cancel because I would have been extremely embarrassed to recommend the place. It’s sad because I love the concept.

    Service was very slow, no kids menu, for what we got worked out more expensive than other similar places. Small chocolate milk was expensive for what was a very small cup. We had omelette’s that we’re fine but nothing special. People who came in after us got there food before or at same time.

    It is a cute local establishment that made us feel like we were home eating at our kitchen table. Enjoyed the food and found the coffee to be fantastic. I had the cream chipped beef with the homemade biscuits. I highly recommend you try the biscuits. Everyone was very friendly and we were not rushed. We are planning on a return with friends.

    My initial vist to the Black Cat Cafe was very nice. Limited but good choices for breakfast. Prices a little steep, but given the cause, I'm willing to pay. My companion and I both ordered the Breakfast Burrito. A white flour tortilla stock full of eggs, spinach, Mexican cheese and black beans, with refried beans on top. Great ingredients, but rather bland tasting. I'd recommend a pepper sauce (Sriracha?) to add some flavor and zip.

    The Black Cat CafeResponded on January 25, 2020Thank you for your review! Our staff is supposed to ask if you would like hot sauce in your burrito, I promise to talk to our staff to make sure we provide this option to our guest at all times. Your feed back is important to us and we would like to thank you for your patronage and perspective. By the way I like your idea on the sriracha sauce. Thanks Chef Judy

    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.
