I’ve already done one post on the history of the Black Cat cafe, but these photos are worth sharing. First, from 1985, then from 2001 as it was about to close.

    I first visited at 15, and fell totally in love. Spent much of the next 6 years there. Good times…

    I frequented the Black Cat Cafe from October 1987 to 2001 and have recently made a blog site related to it. You may wish to view the site and look forward to your own story about this cafe, now a part of Melbourne history.
