Easy access and parking on Main Street, clean bathrooms, good seating downstairs and upstairs, and very good coffee. We stopped in every day. As others have pointed out, the barrista takes your order, prepares the coffee for you, and then you pay them. While they are creating your beverage you have to stand there and chat them up. Some of the staff were better at this than others. They have excellent pastries from Mama's Kitchen Table. It's really all about the coffee, and they do it very well.

The coffe was really nice and smooth. Beer as well. Service was really friendly. Amazing location with 3 stories including a wine bar on the first floor. Very modern

Coffee for any who writes, calls himself/herself a writer, reads, reviews and engenders a love for such is most likely"on coffee." One who is traveled knows happiness is found disguised/obscured in the minutia of life and measured in mm (like viscous goodness in a coffee cup).

We visited BVK quite consistently over the course of three weeks in Mammoth Lakes---cappuccino wet and hot chocolate (secret recipe) was truly at the level of "ethereal." I appreciate the time spent with Matt Hammer and his team of friendly and considerate baristas.

Coffee is roasted in house and the waffles (similar to Belgian waffles) were superb. Thanks to Mrs. Hammer as well for the ambrosia found in non-neutral cups at Black Velvet Coffee.

As for me on writing (who knows really) and perhaps I join words together with no rhyme or reason. Mammoth Lakes (its' said) imparts health, good company and wellness (no yoga needed?). Do try the libations here. Excellent like the staff.

THis place is soooo cute! They have a wine tasting section that is set up with wine barrels and places to sit. Really nice to just have coffee or wine tasting.

Very helpful server who definitely knew her coffee and how to make it - beats Starbucks hands down. Been in America on holiday for over a week and hadn't had a decent cup until we visited Black Velvet - fabulous, would recommend.
