WHY Creative breakfasts, lunches and even occasional dinners, paired with Homeboy Bakery breads.
WHAT More than a bakery, Fairfax’s Black Cat has a freshened-up vintage café look and an evolving menu with unusual selections like the terrific farro bibimbap deeply flavored with shiitake mushrooms, burrata and a fried egg, pig trotter eggs Benedict, multigrain pancakes and flavorful Thai shrimp salad. Lots of sidewalk tables and all-day breakfast menu made the café instantly popular on weekends. Also available are breads to take home from Homeboy Bakery.
