First time lunch visit. We had the Cobb salad and a Reuben sandwich. The Reuben was excellent. The atmosphere is pleasant and the service is very good. We recommend Blackbird Cafe and would definitely have lunch there again.

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.
