With items such as peanut butter hot chocolate and Norwegian waffles, there’s no mistake that this is an eye catching menu at Black Sheep Coffee. The motto of Black Sheep Coffee is “Leave the herd”. This can be seen written on the walls as part of the decor.
There are also neon signs with mottos such as “Good for the Soul”. The classic image from Home Alone graces one of the walls. The interior is quite dimly lit but it is a relaxing atmosphere. The seating at Black Sheep Coffee is quite limited with only a few tables and some outdoor seating. There are some high chairs along with window side.
Coffee is ordered at the counter but then the staff bring the drinks to the table. This is nice as then there is no standing around and waiting. There are cold drinks on offer as well. The food is on display at the glass covered counter.
The staff were so helpful. They recommended not to have the flat white made with almond milk as it would split the coffee. They said that any other of the other milks, such as hazelnut, oat, coconut, would be absolutely fine. It was so good that the staff informed me about the almond milk, as curdled coffee is something that wouldn’t have been good.
Oat milk was chosen for the decaf flat white. The coffee was quite a strong coffee and it worked well with the oat milk. Coffee time at Black Sheep Coffee was a really enjoyable break.
