We opened the Blackbird Bakery in September of 1999 starting with the two of us and a dozen other folks. We baked the things we loved and made coffee the way we thought it should be made. As it turned out lots of people agreed with us and we have been blessed over the years with an amazing parade of talented and inspired bakers, cooks, and baristas each bringing something of themselves to the table. We wouldn’t have become the bakery we are without all of them and they continue to help us achieve our vision every day.
We sing our baking song with such joy because of the community we are a part of. We are surprised and honored to have been embraced and allowed to become such a significant part of so many lives. We have come to love all the great community events, all the seasons and all the people that make Bainbridge Island such a wonderful place
