We have eaten at the Blackbird a few times now...it never disappoints. The menu is varied and the quality of the preparation is excellent. Portions tend to be very generous. Nice to find a place with a casual atmosphere and really good quality.

We had a wonderful dinner at the Blackbird Cafe when attending a ski race at Calabogie. The service was great, the food was great (even made me a blackened pickerel that was not on the menu) but the wine list is terrible! I will not dock their score for this, however, as they have a BYO with corkage fee as... More

Once again we choose Blackbird to celebrate a special family occasion. We were not disappointed! We each had different dishes and all plates were cleaned off. Great food, great value, super attention to detail. Thanks for another great evening!

What can I say? We we're visiting friends in Renfrew and they recommended The Blackbird. Outstanding in every way...wait staff, food, quality, quantity, value and ambiance. What a GEM of a restaurant! I can't wait to go back!

What a lunch experience ! Simple menu, charming decor and welcoming staff. Wraps served with soup and salad were exquisite. Made with fresh ingredients and prepared with care. The wraps were absolutely beautiful to look at, colorful and bursting with fresh vegetables and cheeses and delightful to eat. Flavorful, cooked to perfection these lunch wraps are worth the detour.

We were on a motorcycle tour when we happened upon Burnstown and decided to try the Blackbird Café. What a pleasant surprise. Located in what use to be an old general store, the décor is still reminiscent of its past with lots of... More
