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.

Blackbird bakery is an excellent bakery. All of the baked goods are fresh and made with care. The French breads are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. The chocolate chip cookies are delicious. I highly recommend this bakery if you cannot make to France on a weekly basis.

I love croissants. The croissants do not even come close to bakeries in France or good ones in america. I've been here repeatedly so the croissants are not bad enough for me to not stop in every few months. But they definitely are not memorable and not worth coming by more than once every few months.

The apricot croissants and raspberry shortbread are the best you will ever eat!!!! I visit this bakery weekly and feel like I am eating baked goods in Paris. They are simply fabulous! Blackbird even makes dog biscuits, which are pricey, but cannot be resisted for my faithful friend. The only caveat: Once you visit, you will be hooked.

The butter is practically oozing out of the pastries and cookies. The crust on the breads is perfect. Authentic baguettes and wonderful ciabatta bread. Delicious challah too! The coffee is wonderful also. It is a dangerous place at the end of the day....happy hour with everything 1/2 off!!! I visit this place far too often!!!!

Haven't ever had anything here that wasn't delicious. The French epi is crispy and great with butter, jam, or in its own. They have a good selection of artisan breads too. Tasty croissants remind me of Paris. They also have the BEST chocolate chip cookies in town. My wife and I go weekly.
