Maine Monday: Black Cat Coffee

Stevens Ave in Portland has the distinction of being the only street in the country where you can go from pre-school to graduate school all along the two mile stretch of road. From learning your letters to getting your doctorate, it can be done on Stevens Avenue.

That same one-stop shop philosophy also applies to Black Cat Coffee, with all the best of Portland's breakfast food scene in one convenient storefront. No matter what you like to start your day with, there's something for everyone and the coffee is amazing.

Union Bagel Company supplies the bagels, the donuts come from the creative bakers at Holy Donut, croissants come from Standard Baking, and there are delicious gluten free options from Bam Bam Bakery. With their comfy couches and shelves full of books you could easily stay at Black Cat Coffee through lunch for their Kamasouptra specials.

Trying to gather all our Portland breakfast favorites on a weekend morning would require a major sacrifice to the parking gods, so finding it all in one cozy spot, complete with free wi-fi, is a great discovery. Black Cat Coffee posts their daily deliveries on their Facebook page, but even if your favorite chocolate sea salt donut isn't making an appearance there will be something under the glass display cases to tempt your sweet tooth. Nearby Baxter Woods has walking trails, just in case you need to work off some of those yummy calories.

  1. That's a great name for a coffee shop, when I lived there there was a great one, Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, it was a corner site on a main rd, can't recall the name, I ate there almost 4 times a week.

    Loved your comment!
