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.

First trip to blackbird was a disaster. My sister raved about it so we went. Walk in to a non busy room and was greeted by a dead stare from the woman behind the counter. No hi, no how can I help you...just an icy glare. So I feel already uncomfortable and it's my first time, I get its a... More

We purchased 3 different kinds of focacia-carmelized onion, kalamata olive and pepperoni. Bread was excellent. Their hours are odd so call ahead to be sure they are open.
