Looking for somewhere new to venture to for breakfast, my friend and I found Black Circle Cafe. The coffee was great, as was the breakfast and kooky interior style. All in all, this is a cafe I would happily return to. Good vegetarian options for...More

Had a 5 dollar bacon and egg roll on brioche. It was delicious and the coffee was so nice we bought some beans to take home. Nice funky little place. Can’t go wrong! The staff were pleasant and small waiting times. Thankyou.

Dropped in for a quick breakfast. The coffee was great and food very nice. My wife had the avocado smash which she loved. Musical theme but not overpowering with the music mentioned in a previous review at an appropriate level allowing easy conversation.
