Sweet Black Coffee

Sweet Black Coffee is back on the block again. I had the best smoothie of mango and bananas made by Black Art himself and it was so goooood. It was made all natural no milk products. The coffee is good as well.

While Sweet black Coffee is a coffee house. They also do poetry sets and other things.

Their hours of operation are from  6 a.m. until 9 p.m. and are closed on Mondays.
