I really enjoy coming here for both coffee and lunch. The food has something for everyone and everything I have ever ordered here tasted good! This is my 13 year old son's favorite place for lunch!

An unusual menu with sofas and small tables and seating on the sidewalk as well. You will see college students doing homework or studying, couples relaxing with a meal and families eating lunch. Very comfortable place.

Blackbird Cafe serves fantastic cafe food and pastries alongside wonderful coffees and beverages. The Highlander Grogg is a favorite as well as the homemade oatmeal pies, homemade oreos and the Egg, Sausage & Smoke Gouda breakfast sandwich.

Yummy food! It was hard to choose from the items offered. I opted for the mushroom and mozzarella quiche! Turned out to be a good choice. They offer meat dishes as well as vegetarian selections. I waffled between the quiche and hummus offering. May go back for another lunch when I can!

Staff is always welcoming to help you figure out what you would like to drink and talk through different coffee flavorings with you. A very calm experience, when the teenage crowd is not roaming the streets, with lots of fun places to sit and work or watch people shops around downtown.

The Cherry Pecan salad was wonderful with balsamic! I'm craving it now as I write this! My husband had the turkey artichoke sandwich on sour dough bread which he thoroughly enjoyed. Cute place for coffee and desserts too. Staff is friendly and patient. Can't wait to go back!

Blackbird Café has many different coffees. And in my opinion, they have some of the best coffees in Valparaiso. My friends and I shop downtown Valparaiso, and we always stop at the Blackbird Café for coffee and dessert.
