Hit the spot! We came for a quick cup of coffee and muffin, but were delighted to see they had many made to order egg and toast options. We grabbed a table and stayed instead of taking it to go. The blueberry muffins and omelettes were fresh and delicious, and the service was friendly. Great find!

If you are looking for a good Saturday/Sunday AM breakfast spot. I have tried everything on the breakfast menu. My daughter does ballet next door. This was are hang out from 9-9:45. Nothing spectacular just good food. Coffee is not great. I would get the specialty coffees versus plain large coffee.

Stopped in late in the afternoon for a quick bite with my kids. Had the tuna melt on really nice Tuscan bread with yellow cheddar wish it was white though. The grilled cheese looked really good. The blueberry muffin was ok but needed a lot more blueberries and looked not homemade at all. Eggs and bacon was good but again... More

A friend and I met at the Blackbird Cafe for coffee and had a wonderful time. The coffee is terrific; both the bagel and cannoli were very good, too. This is a small place, but not noisy or crowded feeling. We'll go back!!

Breakfast is served all day, which I love. I had the French toast and my husband had an egg, spinach sandwich. Both were good and the atmosphere is relaxing. Great photographs on the wall. They also sell some Gluten free goodies to take home.

Stopped in here for the first time today. Tried the mint chocolate cappuccino. Very delicious. They were certainly busy, which is always a good sign in my opinion. The menu options looked pretty delicious, as did the pastries at the counter. Looking forward to coming back here again and trying he food.

Had lunch here today with a few friends. The sandwiches are really quite good, not a huge selection but for a lunch meal the selection is perfect. They have a breakfast menu also. We also had the Cappuccino's and they were prepared perfectly and delicious. Love the big heavy mugs which make a nice presentation. We ended up staying for... More

Go just past Groton Center to the Mill Run Plaza for the best coffee in the area. Nice and sunny seating area. I prefer their breakfast items over their lunch menu. The egg and cheese breakfast sandwich on a croissant is awesome - always piping hot with the eggs cooked fresh!

This small cafe just past downtown is extremely popular with the locals. They serve breakfast and lunch only. Breakfast can be as simple as a pastry or muffin, but I recommend their breakfast sandwiches, made fresh to order -- beats those chain sandwiches any day. For lunch, their chicken salad is my perennial favorite -- although a bit more care... More

The owner of this place is a nice guy and the service is always vey attentive. Great place to meet a friend for coffee, have a book group meeting, or a business meeting. The omlettes are outstanding and for lunch their soups and chili hit the spot on a cold New England day,
