Came here for brunch and it is not what it used to be. The burger was way overcooked and the fries that came with it were limp. Service was so-so. Will not patronize again.

Our waitress was friendly on an early Sunday morning. We had a party of 7 and were seated right away. Our food was delicious. The french toast was amazing and so was the southern breakfast.

We like when the simple things are achieved - essentially nicely prepared food with terrific service. We liked the Blackberry Bistro for getting this formula right.

5 people and a Baby stroller. A bit of table moving was handled very well by the staff. All of the food was nicely presented and the coffee was Excellent. Love to see Grits on a Northern Menu. It was hard to decide from the great menu choices. If I lived in this area I would be there every morning... More

Day two of our annual trip to Oakland. We chose Blackberry Bistro because it serves breakfast all day and it was not crowded on a Thursday at 10:30 am. The decor is a bit off putting, but we quickly got past that because the food was delicious. Mostly egg type dishes but there is French toast and cereal. I ordered... More

I'm surprised I haven't reviewed my old time favorite as I have been coming here for years, at least once a year for at least 5 years. I always seem to order the same thing too, Prawn and Grits. But it tasted different, not as spicy but it was still good.

Beautifully composed plates, with lots of little extras, and such succulent combinations of ingredients. First we had huge frothy bowls of latte and mocha... So inviting and tasty! Then we shared the decadent bread pudding, with burnished caramel sauce and whipped cream. After that were our main courses... Sue had the Southern plate, with creamy grits and bacon and potatoes...

It's pretty decent breakfast/brunch food, but pretty basic, I could make what's on the menu at home and better.

There are many delicious and satisfying menu choices from basic eggs & grits to the more fanciful combinations. This restaurant has a track record of many years in business and many happy customers. Local politicians

We were the first people in the restaurant when it opened for breakfast one August weekday morning at 7:30 am, and the place was full by the time we left. Two of us had the "Glenview", and the other had an omelet. The food was very good, service was good. Pleasant neighborhood restaurant, open for breakfast and lunch. Worth stopping... More
