This is a fantastic restaurant. Friendly service, eclectic decor, amazing food. What more can you ask for?
My husband, teenage son, and I visited on Saturday around noonish. The online menu brought us in. It was such a delightful meal. I had the amazing Oxtail Hash. Now, many might be intimidated and or avoid oxtails like the plague. It's just tender beef. Quit thinking about it and order it! It's amazing. Root vegetable has with two perfectly cooked eggs, homemade hollandaise sauce and homemade wheat bread toast. Astonishingly good. Son's meal was relatively boring, but he's a teenager--just a scrambled eggs breakfast, but it was fantabulous. Bacon was out of this world and he ate the homemade hash browns in about 30 seconds. He couldn't stop eating to comment on the taste, which we parents know equals "Excellent!" My husband had the Collen O'brien breakfast. He's a spice fiend and this got him pink in the face in a glorious way. The homemade andouille sausage was the source of the zip. Yum.
The coffee was excellent. However, this is a bit pet peeve of mine, just when I got it creamed and sugared just to my liking, someone would come along and top it off. Ugh. I hate this. Just leave me a carafe, really, this is petty, but I can't be the only "leave my coffee alone" person. The only other things the restaurant could work on are: our waitress spoke so softly half the time we had no idea what she was saying and they need a changing table in the bathroom. The father who used the woman's room before me used the sink and left some evidence behind, ew. Just a door attached fold down deal, I'm sure, would be appreciated in this neighborhood filled with young families.
OK, so why are you still reading this. Go. Now. In fact, as I write this it's happy hour and I'm honestly thinking about making the drive from the 'burbs just to sit and eat what looks like the most amazing happy hour menu around.
Thanks Blackbird Cafe. You'll see me again. And if you don't recognize me, look for the woman covering her coffee cup every time someone's doing the java jive across the dining room.
