The Black Bird was a short drive for us and the first word that came to mind, as we came to the door, in the evening, was "Rustic" - The interior is pleasant, with a lot of knick knacks displayed on the wall, which definitely add to the character of the place. The older wood boards and planks complete the... More

I love this cafe for many reasons. We were there on a Sunday afternoon and they were closing a little earlier for some reason so our lunch was a bit rushed but we were grateful that they still took us after an hour drive to get there. The food was fresh and large portions. The only thing disappointing was the... More

What a sweet little place.

The kind of place you want to sit... More

This was our first visit to this gem of a place. Small and quaint. Service was excellent with staff very knowledgeable. We had shrimp cocktail and crab cakes for starters then steak with blue cheese crust, and steak and mushrooms for main course. Steaks were done to exactly as we ordered. Finished off with carrot cake and a chocolate/banana cake.... More

My lunch was good, but extremely expensive they should make the portions smaller and lower the prices. Also the bathrooms need updated they are very dark and smelly

We had lunch here one day while staying at the Calabogie Lodge. We both had wraps from their specials that day and were very satisfied. Mine had chicken, cranberry goat cheese, bacon, pesto mayo, lettuce, and tomato. My husband's was southwest beef with veggies. Both came with a small salad and a bowl of soup for around $15. It was... More

The food is very expensive and horrible! Not even real chicken. Wished we went anywhere else! Extremely disappointing and will never be back.

Stopped in late afternoon for coffee and dessert. Had the homemade carrot cake - one piece is enough for two people! Absolutely delicious! Great coffee as well as friendly, prompt service.
