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!

Wonderful bread, pastries and coffee

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.

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!!!!
