We reported back in July that a new coffee shop concept would be opening on Moss Street in Lafayette, Louisiana.

Exciting news for coffee enthusiasts on Lafayette's Northside! The much-anticipated Black Cat Coffee House is officially open for business as of Monday, bringing a fresh vibe to the local coffee scene. Addressing the need for a drive-thru coffee option and a cozy spot to enjoy coffee with a Carpe Diem or Rêve Coffee Lab-type ambiance, Black Cat Coffee House aims to cater to the Northside community's caffeine cravings.

Gethsemany Aguirre, the visionary 19-year-old behind this feline-inspired concept, is not just brewing coffee; she's brewing a sense of community and compassion. The coffee house is not only set to become a go-to spot for those seeking a quick CATpuccino on the go but also a hub for coffee lovers looking to savor an aMEOWicano and embrace the Hispanic heritage infused into the specialty menu.

What sets Black Cat Coffee House apart is its commitment to giving back. With a mission to support local animal shelters and contribute to the welfare of cats and other animals in need, this coffee haven transcends the typical caffeine fix.

For those seeking a cozy and aesthetically pleasing coffee shop to study, work, or indulge in a late-night coffee rendezvous, Black Cat Coffee House promises to be the go-to destination. Gethsemany envisions creating an Instagram-worthy space, complete with outdoor fire pits for those chilly Louisiana nights, ensuring a perfect blend of comfort and style.

Located at 4016 Moss St., the former Lumberjack's spot, Black Cat Coffee House invites you to experience a coffee adventure that goes beyond the ordinary. With its doors officially open, the Northside welcomes this charming addition, and coffee enthusiasts can now delight in the delightful aroma of freshly brewed coffee and the warm embrace of a community-focused coffee haven. Cheers to many Catpuccinos and memorable moments ahead at Black Cat Coffee House!
