If you are looking for a unique place to get a cup of coffee in Bend, check out Bluebird Coffee. Bluebird Coffee is a neighborhood cafe serving tea, coffee, and espresso on NW Franklin Ave in the Franklin Crossing Building located in the heart of downtown Bend.
Food & Drink
The cafe makes their own almond milk, and they serve bagels, pastries, and quiches from other Bend restaurants and cafes for breakfast. They also serve Sparrow Bakery’s famous Ocean Roll. The Ocean Roll is made of croissant dough rolled up with a layer of cardamom, sugar, and vanilla. For lunch, they serve baguette sandwiches, gourmet salads, and seasonal soups with both gluten-free and vegan options available.
One of Bluebird Coffee’s signature drinks is their Cubano, a hot espresso infused with cinnamon and sugar. They offer a variety of seasonal drinks as well, including the dirty snowman—a mocha with marshmallows—and the Autumn in a Cup, which has pumpkin, ginger, and other seasonal spices.
The inside of the shop has an art gallery and gift shop with clever mugs, local artwork, seasonal gifts, knick-knacks, and local bottles of wine. The owners wanted the coffee shop to have the feel of an old general store, so the layout of the store was inspired by this. However, the gallery doesn’t leave much space for seating and there isn’t outdoor seating, so this isn’t the best coffee shop if you are with a group of people or kids. They do have a couch, a table, and a few window seats, so if you are by yourself or stopping in for a coffee to go, the limited space should not be an issue. They also have free Wi-Fi if you need to work on your computer.
Bluebird Coffee is open Monday-Saturday from 7 a.m.- 4 p.m. and Sunday from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. There is a minimum of $6 if you use your credit or debit card so it is helpful to have cash if you plan on spending less than $6.
