Friends of ours recommended that we go to this bakery. I do not think we would have stopped in otherwise. It has an unassuming look on the outside - would be easy to walk right by, especially since it is not on the main street.
As soon as we entered, we were really glad that our friends sent us. We only ordered donuts, but the selection of items to choose from was overwhelming. Everything looked delicious. There is also ice cream and coffee there as well :).
It is a very large bakery, so plenty of room to sit and relax and eat. Would be a great place to study. Wish we lived closer!

Love the quiche! My daughter is crazy about the donoughts. We love going here in the mornings. We go there so much, they know what we are going to order.

We have never had much luck trying to find a good place to eat or even stop for coffee on the trip from Knoxville to Roanoke. Desperately seeking a coffee stop, we spotted a sign for the Blackbird Bakery near an exit and decided to make the short trip into Bristol, VA, to check it out. What a surprise to find this lovely spot downtown that serves all manner of coffee drinks, a vast array of pastries, and delicious ice cream--much more than we could have hoped for. We had coffee and mocha chocolate chip ice cream and took a couple of different brownies with us (that were a welcome and delicious treat later).

The downside was counter service that was slow and confusing. A long line that afternoon got held up at several spots, depending on what people were ordering. Spoons apparently aren't doled out until after payment, so my husband's ice cream was beginning to melt as the line snaked along. They need to work on that system!

Still, this will likely be a regular stop when we're on this route and craving a coffee break. An added bonus was the discovery of a downtown with several possible dining options for future reference.

Everything there is great. Bread, desserts, everything in between. Whenever in Bristol I make a point to stop by!
