“A Place to Stop”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

Home made food, pleasant wait staff, good food, pleasant atmosphere sum up our lunch experience at the Blackbird Cafe. This is worth a visit if you are in between Calabogie and Renfrew, or out for a country drive.

“Good food and friendly staff”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

My wife and I had lunch here after attending a wedding reception the night before. This place was recommended by neighbours in our condo.
The meal was fantastic as was the service. We made reservations the night before as suggested to us. We arrived at 11:30 and were the first there. At 12:30 the place was full . Its a 2 hour drive from home but we will do it again soon.

“Great place for lunch”
Reviewed July 31, 2014

Nettled in a small town and part of a country store this is just the place for a leisurely lunch on a sunny summer's day.

Great smoked salmon, the wraps are humongous, salads are varied and very fresh. The portions will tide you over for a day or two.

Service is country friendly and very swift.

Good selection of small brewery beers and an adequate wine list.

We will be back...
