I went with a friend after visiting Descanso Gardens. It is a great relaxing place to sit outdoors after a long walk/hike without having to worry about changing attires. Both services and food are great. Parking is easy in the back!

I live almost 2 hours away from Black Cow Cafe and it's not unusual for us (the wife and I) to make the drive for a wonderful breakfast. The food is off the hook delicious....ALL OF IT. The young men and women who work there...More

I got the biscuits and gravy and a mimosa. The mimosa was weak and overpriced and the biscuits were extremely dense and dry. I’m not excited to go back.

This place is always jammed! There is usually a waiting list. This is because they food is good and plentiful. It is also consistent. If you order something a second time, it is just as good as the first. Of course the tables are too...More
