The overpriced coffee was the single most disgusting tasting cup I have ever experienced. It was something beyond burnt tasting. I'm sure this isn't a usual thing but unfortunately we ordered to go. The holiday cookie was good, yet again overpriced for what it was.

This is a hugely over-hyped San Antonio bakery (presumably because of the celebrity connection) across from Local Coffee and I finally managed to visit this morning. With 5 staff running around, none could be bothered to greet us or take our order despite very few customers in the building. Where are the baked goods? At 10am, two thirds of the display was completely empty - no croissants, no muffins, no breakfast items at all and no evidence this case is ever full. There was a small sample tray where I tried a corner of some product that was pretty mediocre. We decided not to wait any longer since clearly the staff couldn't care less and we went down the road to Starbucks. It's kind of sad when a town's local bakery is bested by a chain fast food eatery.

Coffee was wonderful , smooth like Lavazza coffee. Employees are very attentive & polite. Quality of this cozy place is escalate but still like home with rustic furniture. Will be back!

Today was my first experience with Bird Bakery. I remember vaguely reading about its grand opening last year, then forgot about it possibly because I live north of the airport and rarely visit the Alamo Heights area. Then there was a huge write-up in our local newspaper on July 3rd while I was out of town. (Thank goodness my family saves the newspaper for me to read when I get home from business trips.) My son and I had planned to see The Lone Ranger when I got back which we did on July 10th. Well, I saw the movie and LOVED it, then decided it was time to go check out this bakery. Well, everything about it was incredibly super-fantastic! If that is not the biggest group of words to describe something that is the greatest it can be, then please think BIGGER. My son and I loved this bakery. He had the California Turkey salad and was impressed at how tasty it was and totally healthy. I had the best Egg Salad sandwich I have ever tasted in my life. Our cupcakes were to die for and even their homemade chocolate chip cookie. (Took some home too.) Everything is FRESH, every leftovers. And what ever leftovers they have at the end of the day goes to charity! The decor is beyond charming.... a lot like I decorate. The staff were exceptional in their customer service with not only a "Welcome to Bird Bakery" as you walk in, but checked on us during our meal. Lots of smiles were going on by staff and customers. I will go back....have to. My goal is to experience every sandwich and every cupcake over time and have my friends do the same. Oh...and for those wanting something delicious and gluten free...they have that to offer as well. I was totally charmed by today's experience and cannot wait to go back! Thanks Elizabeth & Armie and the whole staff, to include one of the managers Julie, who I had to say hello to. I am retired Air Force so have eaten all over the world. We in San Antonio are so blessed to have Bird Bakery. So go, enjoy and be totally amazed!

I love a good bakery but the vibe was a bit too pinky up for me. Perhaps I'm not classy enough... Great food, great coffee, but the vibe was a killer for me.

While looking for places to have my wedding cake made I stumbled across this place. It was literally down the street from my venue. They were very quick to get back to me when I tried to set up a tasting. They have some delicious combinations and I was impressed my quality. There service however, left a lot to be desired. PRO: Good flavors and clearly quality ingredients. PRO: Beautifully decorated and held up will on the minute drive to the venue and later after the wedding. PRO: Cute packing and did customize forks for us with a minimal charge, cute idea of the girl (Nicole) with initially met with! CON: While showing me flavor combos others had customized they then told me they could not customize something at my request. Hmm. CON: Tried to charge $75 delivery fee to go around the corner. Explained it was because tier are difficult to transport. Then when I switched to single tiers the fee was still the same. CON: Speaking of tiers... I got three different prices quoted to me for a tier cake as well as individual tiers... all the backs and forth were quite frustrating and left me with no other option but to go with them and pay the rapidly increasing quote as it was getting close to my wedding day. PRO & CON: The first girl we met with, Nicole, was very helpful and had great suggestions. Great suggestions. However she wasn't clear on the pricing. Melissa, the girl we eventually dealt with was varying degrees of rude. If it had not been so close to the date I would have cancelled the first time I spoke with her. Overall I would recommend going in there for brunch (we had a yummy quiche on one or our visits and the hibiscus tea was excellent) or a cupcake, but I would NOT recommend then for an important event. This doesn't doesn't seem to be a direction they are cultivating; Inflexibility and not including a cup cake or a mini-tier on an anniversary is a clear indication of that. Or perhaps the very high caliber Houston and Austin bakeries are alone in offering that quality of service.

This is one of the worst small bakeries I've ever been to. Firstly, the service was awful. As I was placing my order, the woman paused me, turned around and answered the phone in the middle of my sentence. Then when she turned back around she asked "Are you ready to order?"........ ummm yes.... Seriously? just awful. Not to mention, the place was just crawling with loud small children, it was just loud and busy. When i finally got my cupcakes, I was excited. But then i took a bite. NOT what i was expecting from a bakery with so much hype. The cupcakes made from a box of pills berry box-cake mix is better than these cupcakes. They taste starchy and fattening. Awful. will never be going back.

We've been to Bird Bakery several times now and each visit is just as charming, delightful, and satisfying as the first. We moved to S.A. a couple years ago from Los Angeles and found ourselves missing all the wonderfully charming eateries (especially a great sandwich shop that was walking distance from my work on Sunset Blvd.) Bird Bakery immediately won us over with fresh, tasty sandwiches and cupcakes to rival Sprinkles from Beverly Hills! We were already fans, but the day before Mother's Day we went to visit and the power went out as soon as we started to order. Amelia barely batted an eye and immediately jumped from computer to paper. They even continued to accept credit cards. The entire staff didn't miss a beat, taking orders, serving patrons, topping off drinks, and packing up special orders. If there was a panic in the kitchen due to the loss of power to their appliances, you wouldn't know it. The owner was out of town that day, but you'd think that every staff member was personally vested in satisfying every customer's request. Bravo!
