Black Cat Coffee - Eskisehir
Black Cat Coffee came highly recommended to me as the best coffee in Eskişehir and certainly didn't disappoint. At first glance Black Cat Coffee is a fairly ramshackle affair in an endearing kind of way that adds to its charm. Its back street location a little away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre is refreshing as you can sit on a relatively quiet pavement, chatting and smoking undisturbed.
The coffee house is filled with a collection of random objects and mismatched furniture that suggests that its primary purpose is the serving of quality coffee. The staff are relaxed and friendly and the service is unhurried in a good way, the coffee itself is superb with a decent selection of coffee beans from around the world, each cupful of coffee is freshly ground just before it's served (apparently this is where the magic lies). Price wise it is also well worth a visit at just 5TL for a latte. Located in Eskibağlar mahallesi Baydemir sokak its just off the beaten track a mere stones throw from Haller and Espark and well worth the small detour up the back streets. In a city drowning under the influence of Starbucks inspired corporate style soulless coffee franchises Black Cat Coffee is a refreshing change.
