The staff was friendly, and patient. The chocolate croissant was delicious, and the latte was warm and strong. While I was visiting the music selection was tasteful and at a comfortable level. No complaints at all.

I'd say it's a decent enough place. The coffee is decent, but it's like any other overpriced coffee shop everything is far more expensive than what it is actually worth. I would say I think this black horse is doing way better than the other one in SLO that I've been to.

Coffee was dark without bitter aftertaste which is a sign of careful brewing. Milk was foamy smooth and tasty for the latte! Pasteries we delicious and tasted home made. Did I say the coffee was excellent?! Forgot to take picture of my blackberry croissant it was so tasty. Wife had almond croissant which a delicate almond paste inside and daughter selected the bearclaw which also had a little chocolate inside. Service was excellent and atmosphere was wonderful with indoor or outdoor seating. Tables had a lttle distance and SLO weather was perfect. Will make this a regular stop when in SLO.Parking: Some on the street.

Finally bagel cream the best in my journey.. fresh nice warm and served with genuine love and compassion. America is great why does anyone want to make it great again.Eric the owner with some good college kids working and he is the most amazing guy. Someone called asking whether it was a tee place as jn golf tee and he wondered whether it was better to offer him tea.He offered me spinach and feta cheese roll.. again good .Bri is the lady learning and studying to be a civil engg and is going tk be a very good engg, I will hire her.And then there is the silent barista who only drinks tea.. Jen ..sturdy focused , studying ..Amazingly beautiful place opening early to feed hungry travellersThank you for being you

Decent coffee shop in SLO. I had a lavender matcha latte that was nothing to get excited about. The seating area had flies all over the place and there was trash strewn about. The baristas seemed to care more about chatting amongst themselves than interact with customers. WiFi was serviceable and didn't require a password. Overall it was okay but nothing about the experience makes me want to come back especially with all of the other coffee options in town.

Pleasant staff and fast service. Love the cinniminis!Wish there was more parking, as shoppers take the very few spaces alloted to them.
