Run or flap your wings as fast as you can for a great scone and tea or coffee. Try it all you won’t go wrong with your choice

Our daughter and her family live in Lakewood and we visit several times a year. When we do, a "must visit" is the Blackbird Bakery. The bread, pastries and cookies are the best - as good as anything we have eaten in France or Austria!...More

Our visit added just 5 minutes drive time (to and from the interstate) to our trip. If you're a bread aficionado, you'd be crazy not to take the detour. Stopped in for some fresh java and croissants. Went back for seconds before leaving. We left...More

My ciabatta roll was so hard that it was difficult to eat. The cranberry scone was way too sweet. This place was packed when we stopped in for breakfast, but I don't understand why.

We LOVE the pastry and breads here - seriously! The pastry dough is absolutely the best, and my family knows pastry! We go out of our way to go here. However, there are a couple of annoyances that compromise the experience. We went in recently...More

Conveniently located on the corner of Sloane and Detroit on the Lakewood/Rocky River border, Blackbird Baking Company specializes in European style hearth-baked breads such as French baguettes, ciabatta, focaccia, and a variety of levains; also famous for our rustic pastries such as croissants, sticky buns and scones. As a compliment to our baked goods we offer coffee, tea, and a traditional espresso menu. Everything made on-site, by hand and from scratch, and baked fresh every day. Lots of seating and free Wi-Fi! Locally owned and operated.
