Nice range of menu options. Had eggs royal on sourdough. This was very nice. Coffee was beautiful but very strong. Great atmosphere. Would go again.

We are visiting the Black Dog very frequently. Why? It's all you could ever want from a local cafe!!! Amazing coffee, relaxed atmosphere, simple ingredients used to create amazing dishes and friendly staff . Great place for just a coffee, breakfast or brunch.
