Consistently delicious

When I first went to the Blackbird, I thought it was a coffee shop with a few food offerings. Then I looked at the menu, it is very long - salads, sandwiches, soup, quiche, breakfast sandwiches, and more. Everything I have tried over the past 2 months has been great. And then the fresh bakery items... read more

I didn't try any of the food; however, the menu looked very good. The Kona coffee was one of the better cups I had in a long time.

Nice coffee shop with good bakery items. The atmosphere is casual and inviting. There is some seating outside, but we had our coffee and bakery item inside. Over all a nice experience. Good cappuccino.

My wife went with a friend for lunch. She had a quiche and her friend had a sandwich. Really liked the different flavorings for the iced tea.

I met friends here for a cup of coffee at the end of an evening together. Their selection of decaffeinated teas was very nice. I wish they were open just a bit later but it’s a wonderful place to stop for a cup of tea or coffee and a nice pastry.

The have good coffee. Sandwiches and baked goods are "coffee house" priced but tasty so still worth it. Nice atmosphere. I've stopped in alone, with my love, with friends, with kids... it a handy little coffee house.

We had an alright experience. There's nothing tremendous to talk about, except the bill! I just think it's way over priced. :P

This is a great little local place that makes you realize that Starbucks isn't as good as you thought is was. This is a charming little cafe that offers delicious sandwiches, soups, homemade bakery items and coffees. Treat yourself and shop local!

My husband and I found Blackbird cafe when we moved to Valpo. 4 years ago. It's quaint, cozy and the service is fantastic. Not to mention their tasty food and bakery items! You can get all items on the menu at any time of day. This is our favorite place to dine or just grab a delicious cup of coffee.... More

Blackbird has done catering for a couple of events that I've arranged. Wonderful service and fantastic food! The artichoke dip is to die for!
