What a special place! Devoted servers. Fun atmosphere and creative dishes with lots of vegetables! A few tempting artisan items for sale add to the fun of being there.

There isn't a restaurant in the entire county that has better panini than Blackbird Cafe. Always delicious!

Cool place inside but food took 35 minutes to receive. You will enjoy but don't be in a hurry. Instead sit back and relax to enjoy the experience at the black bird.

Wow... If I was mgr, I'd fire half the staff. Place was basically empty and waited over 20 min for one humus and cucumber sandwich. Five staffers behind in the kitchen area and only one girl who works! Three standing around, doing nothing with pusses...More

Eclectic bistro/cafe, serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner with a focus on fresh, local, and seasonal. Menus change frequently. Vegan and vegetarian friendly, many gluten free options. Great beer and wine list, and the best coffee in town. Great historic ambiance.
