“Best Breads In Town”
Reviewed April 1, 2012

Best artisan breads in town, simular to the breads I have had throughout europe. Nice open bakery where you can watch the breads being shaped, and baked. They've mastered the Bagette with a flavorful, crusty, chewey outside, and a soft airy inside. Did I mention the light flakey croissants filled with numerous fillings. Oh yes cookies too.

“Best Bakery in Cleveland”
Reviewed June 27, 2011

Blackbird opened about a year ago, and right away it became a part of my normal routine, unfortunately for my waistline. This is quite simply the best bakery in Cleveland. Blackbird has gotten some press locally about their pecan rolls, which are made with croissant dough and are quite good, but are just one among the many amazing baked goods they make. Hands down my favorite morning treat is one of their scones, either the cranberry or the cherry - and it's probably a sad comment that I know by heart the days they offer those flavors (I avoid currant scone day, not being a fan of currants at all). The scones you typically find in coffeehouses give scones a bad name, but these are simply amazing. And I normally avoid ordering croissants most places, as the ones you often seem to find are doughy or tasteless. These are so buttery, flaky, and full of flavor, I don't mind when I look down at my shirt after eating one and discover I am covered in crumbs. My favorite are the apricot and raspberry jam filled croissants, although I also really like the almond cream as well. And their cookies are ridiculous, they are so yummy - my favorites are the chocolate chip with the sea salt on top, their moist peanut butter cookies, and the cranberry oat. Sometimes Blackbird will also offer seasonal flavors in their bakery, such as their pumpkin pecan cookies in the Fall, also excellent. Brownies, coconut macaroons, jammers, apple galettes, I have tried every pastry and cookie they make and everything is wonderful. I'll bring a box of their baked goods to work or a party, and it all just gets demolished. Blackbird has been an excellent addition to the West side, and every friend I have recommended the place to that has tried it became a regular as well. If you have not been there yet, it's a must!
