The Black Cat remains closed for renovations. We are hopeful to able to gather again in the not too distant future.
For over 23 years, the Black Cat Coffeehouse has been serving organic, fair-trade and farmer focused coffees. We currently offer Duluth Coffee Company-Duluth, MN and Kickapoo Coffee Roasters-Viroqua, WI.
We make a variety of syrups in house, using organic sugar & natural ingredients to add extra flavor to your cup. Not a coffee drinker? We offer Tea Source tea, smoothies made with real fruit, or a variety of natural bottled juices and spritzers to quench your thirst. We also have one of the largest craft beer selections in Ashland!
Our philosophy on food is simple - better food means better health. We make everything in our kitchen from scratch using quality ingredients with an emphasis on organic whenever feasible. This means the food not only tastes better, but is better for you and the planet! Our menu has many vegetarian and vegan items as well as gluten free options. Our eggs are free range and often local, and most of the meat on our menu was raised on small farms in the region.
We strive to purchase from local producers and vendors as much as possible. Doing so keeps your money in our community making it stronger and more sustainable. If you are a local producer and would like work with us, give us a call or stop in and chat with us about what you can provide!
We not only strive to be active members in our community, but also good stewards for the environment that surrounds us. This is why we’ve partnered with Northland College and their composting program. We started composting scrap foods when we first opened, sending many thousands of pounds to a local organic farm over a 20 year period. When the Hulings Food Center opened on the Northland College Campus, we saw an opportunity to not only compost food scraps, but also our compostable to go containers and paper towels that needed a commercial facility to properly break down. All of our to go containers are currently either biodegradeable, recyclable, or compostable keeping them out of landfills and our rivers, lakes, and oceans.
As a member of the community, we also donate to many local charities, and other organizations to help strengthen the Chequamegon Bay region. This is our way of giving back for the amazing support our community has shown us.
