Logo for Blackbird
When chef Simon Blackwell decided to make bread, he looked close to home for inspiration. The opening of Blackbird in 2011 marked the fourth generation of bakers in his family, beginning in Staffordshire, England in 1894. This tradition of small scale, hand-crafted production using local ingredients remains at the heart of our work to bring fresh bread and pastry to the Kensington neighbourhood, and our retailers and restaurants across Toronto.
