    You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. If you like blue cheese and Ruebens, then the blue cheese rueben is a must.

    Most coffee is good, not a fan of the Americano...tastes burnt to me. Maybe it was a one time thing, idk just a heads up

    Alex (I'm pretty sure that is her name) makes my tea with minimal sarcasm...and I appreciate that.

    I order from Blackbird because they can deliver a good lunch when I'm too busy to get out. The soups are always super-delicious; my favorite is the butternut squash. And they deliver in 20-30 min.

    I've tried several varieties of quiche and soup and all were delish! Also love their Chai & their baked goods!

    Order "something lunchy" or "something dinnery." let them know your allergies and if you like spicy then let them go to town!
    Nat Finn · September 11, 2012

    Bacon and pickle grilled cheese, the best sandwich I never knew existed
    Zachary Virgo · September 4, 2012
  • Nat F.
    Ask for either "something lunchy" or "something dinnery," let them know of you have any allergies and then let them whip up something magical! The best way to order!

    Hard to go wrong here, but try the Roasted Veggie on Pretzel Roll w/Goat Cheese. Redefines the sandwich for others to follow. Use a fork and enjoy it like a meal.

    Went here while passing thru town on the way to Omaha. Super friendly staff and awesome rhubarb pie!

    Keep an eye out for Blackbird Bakery at the corner of Washington & Jefferson. Good baked goods to go!

    My perfect Blackbird visit. An Apple Chai with a shot of amaretto for a drink, and a roast beef with Swiss on a pretzel roll bun. Easily fixes anything a bad day could throw at you.

    Had the chicken pesto panini and tried the chai tea. Both were great! Atmosphere is perfect if you're looking for a low key night!
