Remember Mani’s on Fairfax? When they closed a few years ago, my heart broke. This afternoon I finally checked out its replacement, Black Cat Bakery and Cafe.

My regular nook…

…today I sat in the main dining room with Leslie and Jenny.

Order at the counter and they bring your food to you….a good potential spot for future Blogger Meetups – figuring out a large group bill can be a real headache!

Definitely intrigued with the baked goods…

…decided to just stick to a sweet entree instead. In fact, we all got breakfast foods!

Leslie’s tofu scramble…

…and Jenny’s omelet.

Their portion sizes seemed pretty small compared to the three huge, fluffy multigrain pancakes I got!

Requested the preserves and used most of those (plus a little maple syrup) to polish off my plate. I’m really not a butter on pancakes/waffles/bread kinda gal.

Still sad Mani’s is gone, but was very happy with my first experience here. FYI – there are a lot of gluten-free and vegan options, plus a parking lot in the back!

Those pancakes look great! I’ve never been much of a butter on my pancakes sort of girl either — when I was little I would be so grossed out by the big melty ball seeping into the center. I always loathed soggy pancakes so would put my syrup on the side to dip the pancakes into rather than pouring it over the top.
