Blackbird is a cozy, friendly cafe in a stripmall outside of downtown Topeka. I came because I heard about vegan baked goods.
They had only one vegan option, a banana bread slice ($2.50), though it was really good, being both moist and subtly sweet. It was also labeled with a "v" which was nice. Sometimes they also have vegan biscotti.
The food menu doesn't offer too much for vegans. There are some lacto-ovo vegetarian sandwiches/wraps which can be modified to exclude cheese, but those are pretty boring options. I'd like to see some tofu/seitan/tempeh sandwiches, or maybe a juicy seitan burger.
Both of the owners of the cafe are vegetarian and are knowledgeable about ingredients, by the way.
Lastly, I wish Blackbird had loose-leaf teas. While they do serve a respectable brand of teabags, loose-leaf tea just tastes better, offers superior variety, and is more ecologically-friendly.
In conclusion, Blackbird is a nice cafe/coffeeshop and worth a stop if you're in Topeka.
