Conveniently located on the corner of Sloane and Detroit on the Lakewood/Rocky River border, Blackbird Baking Company specializes in European style hearth-baked breads such as French baguettes, ciabatta, focaccia, and a variety of levains; also famous for our rustic pastries such as croissants, sticky buns and scones. As a compliment to our baked goods we offer coffee, tea, and a traditional espresso menu. Everything made on-site, by hand and from scratch, and baked fresh every day. Lots of seating and free Wi-Fi! Locally owned and operated.

This place has the best coffee, hot chocolate and cookies and pastries. Ambiance is fun, nice place to chat, take your kids. Only wish the outdoor dining was better to tie up a doggy....needs some concrete out there so the dogs don't get all dirty. Aside from that, the place is wonderful.

This used to be weekly stop before I joined weight watchers! I have lived in France, and am a tough critic when it comes to croissants. In the US, I often find they are too doughy. Black Bird makes wonderful chocolate, almond, raspberry as well as savory croissants. Their bread is also wonderful-I love their Ciabatta rolls and bread. They... More

I've gone to Blackbird Baking Company and love the coffee and pastry! The atmosphere is casual and friendly. I feel able to stay there for quite awhile and read, journal, and do the crossword puzzle without feeling as if I need to leave. All in all it is a vewry warm, casual place with good food and good vibes.

I've been here to both buy bread, and to stay for a a cup of coffee and study. Both were good experiences. The baked goods are wonderful. The staff are attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable. The dining room is open and airy with natural light. There's many outlets if you need to use a computer.

Blackbird is a great place to meeting your friends. I almost always see someone I know there which makes my visit that much more pleasant. I loved the capucino and even their black coffee is delicious. The baked goods include breads and pastries. I enjoyed the peanut butter cookie.

Get there early for the best baked goods in the Lakewood area!!! Great service and they have outdoor seating! They are also across the street from the Cleveland Metro Parks if you want better scenery :)

It's hard for me to drive by without stopping in for a cookie. The most delicious salted chocolate chip cookie! Also their oatmeal cranberry cookie can't be beat. Delicious fresh focaccia breads! Try the olive & goat cheese kind! Excellent breads and fantastic pastries. Definitely worth a stop :)

Great coffee and outstanding bakery items. Everything is fresh baked and the smell of baking bread and pastries is enough to lure you in for hours at a time. One of my favorite morning coffee spots!

Everything I've had here had been excellent. The breads are fresh and diverse. The cookies are amazing; the chocolate chip is the best I've ever had. The tarts are amazing. You won't be disappointed.
