They really do need a bigger car park, because this restaurant is exceptional and draws a range of people from locals, to cottagers to tourists passing through the area. Established in a heritage building, co-located with a country craft store, you can enjoy your meal on the charming patio, or slip inside and appreciate the shade and the décor. Either... More

Delicious, imaginative and freshly prepared soups, wraps, salads and more. Generous fillings in the wraps, with friendly and accommodating service, and ridiculously reasonable prices, all in all Burnstown's Black Bird Cafe is a very worthwhile place to stop for a bite to eat at any time of the day! Housed in a lovely old store.

This small establishment is very nicely decorated. It brings to mind and old-fashioned general store. The shelves on the walls are adorned with authentic antiques and collectibles. The centerpiece of the room is a beautiful wood stove. My wife ordered a chicken wrap, and I had the smoked meat on rye. Both meals were excellent, and included soup and salad.... More

Decided to give this place a try because of the great reviews. We were not disappointed! It is rustic, but that adds to the charm of the place. The food is plentiful and delicious, and the Blackbird Cafe could become one of our favourite places to eat in Renfrew County. Very pleasant way to spend a Sunday afternoon!

We stopped for lunch and it was heaven. Great ambiance, music and all round vibe. My husband ordered the black bird club. I ordered a special of the day which was an incredible wrap! We split and couldn't decide which was better! Definitely worth the stop. We'll be back. Friendly, prompt service too.

Stayed at Calabogie Lodge this past weekend. En route to Kanata to do go to the outlet mall we stopped in. Had heard about the delicious carrot cake. Wow! Got a piece of carrot cake and a piece of pecan pie, absolutely the best carrot cake I ever had. Cute little place.

Sitting in this little restaurant, I felt like I was home. The food was excellent, soup was home made, the ladies were very friendly. If you ever go by Burnstown you just have to stop, don't miss this.

I was warned to make a reservation at this cozy little cafe outside Arnprior, and I was very glad that I had as upon arrival the entire restaurant was packed. They were missing one Server the day I visited, so lunch service was quite a bit slow. I have also been told that there is a "country pace" normally in... More
