This is a great, grungy place with low prices and excellent food. Their vegan lasagna was delectable---just as good as anything I've tasted at fancy vegan places in New York or Chicago. Their nachos were also excellent, with a good mix of veggies and tangy cashew cream vegan cheese. The only drawback is that they don't accept credit cards. Also, it's not the best place for dates, but it's good for a quick, cheap, tasty bite.

U street area


he Black Cat is located in the heart of the U Street corridor, just a few blocks from the U Street/Cardozo metro station.

Look for a sign saying the Black Cat - Food for Thought is in that door to the left. You will be asked for your ID upon entering, although there is no cover if you are not going to a show.
