Having gone here for brunch last summer, my friends and I were curious to know what Cafe Blackbird's dinner menu was like. We came here on a Friday evening at 6 pm and was told there was a show on at 8 pm. That was fine - we said we were there for dinner and likely wouldn't stay for the show. We ordered 4 plates to share - the beet flatbread, cheese platter, cauliflower tacos and wild mushroom risotto. Among these, my favorites were the last two. The pickled onion in the cauliflower tacos was a refreshing addition and the mushroom risotto had a nice creamy texture. The flatbread was a tad dry and the cheese platter was nothing out of the ordinary, especially for $28. The service was good when we first arrived. As it got busier, it was clear that the number of tables was too much for 2 servers to handle. Nobody came by to refill our waters and when we asked for a refill, our server forgot until we asked once more (just before she gave us the bill). Overall, it was quite pricey for the portion size and quality of food. I would consider coming back for brunch, but probably not dinner.

Cafe Blackbird is one of my favourite spots for breakfast in Edmonton. The food is fresh, they have lots of tasty dishes, and the atmosphere is lively and lovely. Enjoy a morning latte indoors or outside on their patio on a sunny day. Love the touch of using microgreens grown in-house-- this place is a local gem of the west side!

Pretty decent spot for brunch. Very small menu, so the selection process is easy. Pretty decent variance in the items offered given how small the kitchen is. The chef is an absolute star. Having worked in food service the professionalism and attention to detail was evident. My wife and I both had the same dish and it was presented identically. Both poached eggs were the same temperature (as requested) absolutely bang on. The use of sousvide was properly executed. The coffee was very good. Wait staff was as attentive as could be. The atmosphere was light and quiet. We didn't see any kids or overtly friendly kids areas. Something to keep in mind. Parking was fantastic, as was general access.

Stopped in for a midmorning coffee and a snack. Place was mostly empty this time of day. Service was quick and friendly. Coffee was good, and the quiche was great. Patio is apparently dog friendly, and I'll certainly be back on a sunny afternoon to try out the craft beer selections.

Pretty good latte, nice atmosphere and the restaurant was clean and well kept. The patio looked nice as well. Next visit I'll try the food and see how that fares :-) The baked goods had vegan and non-vegan options.
