“Local hangout”
Reviewed 22 February 2013

Besides decent coffee and tea, Blackbird has some pastries and can put together minimal sandwiches. It has local photographers' work on the walls, a piano (ask before playing), a quiet, laid-back, local vibe that we enjoy. We've seen elders and kids there, but mostly 30-somethings, who are often writing on their laptops.

“Great for Lite Breakfast”
Reviewed 29 January 2013

Not too many breakfast places in this part of Point Reyes. I am a tea drinker and this place fit the bill for me. Nice selection of loose tea, which they put in a glass french press for dining in. Some of the leaves have a tendency to get poured into your cup but that's ok. For take out they put it in a bag. Bagels are a little on the small side, but very good. Highly recommended for a light breakfast.

“Nice addition to Inverness”
Reviewed 5 August 2012

Having expected to go to Priscilla's for coffee next door, to find a new establishment, Saltwater Oyster Bar, we found Blackbird Coffee. My husband and I had a latte and a huge, delicious ginger cookie, reasonably priced, nice location, pleasant atmosphere with gorgeous color photographs by Elizabeth Fenwick on the walls. A welcomed relief to find a place to go after a hike and be greeted by friendly staff.

“Nice addition to Inverness!”
Reviewed 2 May 2012

Great coffee, tempting pastries, and I love that they have the Light newspaper for sale and Art Rogers photos on the walls. I hope to get by for the music some time in the future.
