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! I always buy an epi for my grandsons - they like to tear a small piece off and eat it on the spot! An epi provides maximum crust per piece of bread and they love the crunch. I like the raspberry croissants and my wife likes the sticky buns. Everything is fresh and delicious!
The staff is always friendly and helpful - that is appreciated by "out of towners".
The bakery serves coffee and has a large room with tables and chairs where folks can casually enjoy a pastry and coffee. There is a picnic table outside that is popular in warm weather!
Parking is not a problem, the Blackbird has a large parking lot which is convenient.
Hope you enjoy the Blackbird a much as we do!
