On Sunday I visited Black Cat Bakery & Cafe on Fairfax & Maryland in Los Angeles, CA. I was anticipating writing this review, as Black Cat is the spot I decided to write a blog in the first place (see first post of Ma?amCakes). While the menu is not as diverse as Bea Bea?s, their choices are certainly enough for any pancake-lover.
Per my first post of Ma?amCakes, I decided to go with the Belgian Callebaut chocolate-chip pancakes for my review, which also happens to be their most popular pancake.
While the meal looks (somewhat) simple, the taste is anything but. Perfectly cooked, these chocolate-chip pancakes are just what you?d need for a late Sunday breakfast. As you?re enjoying the taste of fresh buttermilk pancakes, the chocolate-chips melt in your mouth to the point where you might just crack a smile. Although not (technically) pancake-related, my recommendation is to wash down this delightful breakfast with an iced latte; Black Cat has some amazing coffee drinks, and they put in the time to make them look beautiful too! (Check out the Caf? au lai!)
While they don?t have specialty pancakes (although depending on the day, they might have in their specials), all in all, I would definitely recommend Black Cat Bakery for a great chocolate-chip pancake breakfast. Be sure to take note they serve breakfast until 3pm, and have FREE PARKING in the back! Always nice to get your pancakes without having to worry about parking!
