#295 Loved everything! Lunch at vegan resto Blackbird, Bruges

restaurant review #295 – Blackbird is a vegan breakfast/lunch restaurant in the city center of Bruges, at the Jan van Eyckplein. The restaurant had gradually been adding more vegan option to their menu over the years, and in Spring of 2021 decided to go fully vegan. Yeah! 🙂

I had been planning to go to Blackbird for a long time, but either we couldn’t or it was closed, or fully booked, and then there was a lockdown etc.
So now finally! To be sure, we made a reservation, as it is often fully booked.

We ordered some drinks (nice mocktails available), a soup of the day (3,50€) and the oven dish (moussaka that day)(16,50€) and the happiness bowl (with peanuts, avocado, lots of greens, …) (16,50€)
The food was great. Moussaka was just the right portion. The happiness bowl was a very large portion (I couldn’t finish it, my husband did).

For dessert we shared a piece of lemon pie (from magpies). It was a huge piece, and enough for the two of us (makes sense at 6,50 a piece😉).

Very friendly service in nice relaxed interior. There are some outdoor tables too.
Next to breakfast and lunch, or a piece of cake, you can also order brunch.

The restaurant room is at ground floor, toilet is at the back – upstairs. No accessible toilet.

We really enjoyed it, and meanwhile we have visited again a couple of times to have tea and coffee and cake in the afternoon!
