Two “Blackbirds” With One Stone - Edit

I googled vegan restaurants during a trip to South St one day as I was craving pizza. We were not familiar with the area so we decided to just make it work on our route. To our surprise they have the best vegan pizza I’ve ever tasted as well as being literally around the corner from our final destination. It couldn’t have worked out any better. Now we go to Philly with the intentions of eating pizza before South St enters our mind. We even go back after our shopping and order a whole pie to take back to Jersey.

Delicious! - Edit

Order the seitan cheesesteak. It was nice to find a vegan restaurant near the tourist area of Philadelphia. Vegans, this is a restaurant you must try.

fantastic first - Edit

This was my first all vegan restaurant since transitioning to veganism, and it did not disappoint. I was visiting Philly on family vacation and I'm the only vegan but I enjoyed the city and its offerings. I only had the pizza but it was amazing and I took a whole one back all for myself. I regret not trying everything.

Pros: friendly staff, cool vibe, tasty

Cons: weird storefront

amazing chocolate mousse - Edit

We had already eaten at another vegan place for lunch, so only went there for a desert to take out, I got the chocolate mouse....So good!!!.....Although I didn't eat anything else there the pizzas behind the counter all looked amazing!....The place is quite small and from the outside it's easy to miss as there not much signage..... The staff were really friendly, and it was a popular place. Will definitely be going back to try the pizza!

Best pizza and wings - Edit

Food is amazing. This place is extremely popular and it can be tough to get a table some times depending on when you go. Defently worth the wait though. Best vegan pizza I've had so far!!

WOWOWO - Edit

We recently visited Philly and loved this place so much we went there twice. The cheesesteak is an award winner so obviously we had to try it. It did not disappoint one bit. The new Violife cheese is nearly indistinguishable from dairy cheese and it is INCREDIBLE. The cheese fries were so freaking good. The next day we went and got pizza - I got a slice of Hawaiian and Funghi. Both amazing. Wish I lived in Philly - I'd eat this all the time!

Pros: Delicious, Nice staff, Great selection

Cons: Small

This place is perfect. Best pizza I've ever had, best "cheesesteak" and great wings. I was flabbergasted.

Must stop in Philly - Edit

I visit Blackbird every time I'm in Philly. The pizza is great AND they no longer use Daiya, now it's Violife cheese, so even more delicious! You can order by the slice or an entire pie. By the slice toppings change daily. They also have calzones, philly "cheese steak" , cookies, and whoopie pies.

One other obsession I have with Blackbird are the wings!! OMG, those root beer "chicken" wings are insane, so much so that my husband and I ordered a bunch last October, brought them back to Brooklyn, froze them, and as big (American) football fans, cooked them in the oven right before Sunday games for the next 10 weeks! Blackbird, please get these wings to Screamers ASAP so I don't have to bring back a dozen order of wings on the bus back to NYC ;)

Best. Pizza. Ever. - Edit

When I ate at here I actually got angry at how good the pizza was!!!! Blackbird is soooo good that I can't understand how people are still eating animal product pizza. I would eat here every day if I could! The prices are fair, the food is incredible, and the establishment is very adamant about inclusivity. The BBQ pizza was my favorite.

Best vegan pizza ever + philly cheesesteak - Edit

It was the best pizza we ever had even if we were unsure when we walked in the door. We ordered the funghi pizza and we still talk about its deliciousness three years later! Also, we were looking for a place to try a vegan philly cheesesteak, we heard that this was the best place around and it didn't let us down.

What is really amazing of this place is that they are stealth vegan. They don't really advertise that they are vegan and if you order anything from the menu you would never notice it was vegan food. Incredible stuff!

Pros: Best pizza ever, Still sallibating , Amazing philly cheesesteak

Cons: If you want to sit in could be packed easily

Best vegan pizzeria! - Edit

TO DIE FOR. That is how I can best describe the tastiness of the food I've ordered here. From the wings to the chicken parm and the pizza.... it's some of the best vegan eats I've come across. If you're a healthy vegan (haha), keep in mind you are going to a pizzeria. The food isn't going to be the epitome of health food but if you want somewhere delicious to take your other veg (or carnivorous) friends- seriously, consider this place. You won't regret it. I wish I lived in or around Philadelphia instead of the shore but the drive is totally worth it.

We typically order the BBQ and spicy wings- I've never had something so HOT in my life! And the pizza.... always a winner! BEST vegan pizza I've ever ordered. If you're from or visit NJ and have had some of the classic Luigis pizza (the best pizza growing up hands down, fact) - it's very similar to that in its flavor.

Love Blackbird! - Edit

Blackbird is a vegan staple! The pizza is great but the cheesesteaks are what keep me going back. I heard a rumor they were switching over to Violife cheeze (which I haven't tried yet but it's reviewed very well) soon. Im definitely interested in trying it. Either way, go to Blackbird!!

Pros: Voted Best Vegan Cheesteak!

I would definitely recommend this spot, for a tasty, (heavy metal) vegan Philly cheesesteak! - Edit

I dropped by to this quaint spot earlier this afternoon and ordered their seitan philly cheseesteak. The food arrived quickly and I dove into the savory taste of vegan, melted, cheese whiz, caramelized onions and peppers, and crispy seitan. The meal was filling, but not too heavy, so I could enjoy a vegan cheesesteak during my first visit to Philly before enjoying our walk around the city. Super delicious cookie varieties and other desssert options. (

Pros: Diverse variety of vegan sandwiches and pizzas, Not too pricey and you receive a good bit of food

Cons: I live 1000 miles away form this joint

Pizza Heaven! - Edit

Pizza is so delicious! The Haymaker pizza is one of my favorite pizzas. If you stop by you have to try their cheesesteaks and cheese fries too! If you want something sweet try their chocolate cookies.

Recently tried their root beer BBQ seitan wings.

Blackbird never disappoints! :)

I nearly wept - Edit

I had the vegan cheese steak and was not disappointed. I nearly wept as I shoveled the hot, delicious, cheesy goodness into my face. Everything from the bread to the cheese sauce was unbelievable. Friendly staff and a cool punk rock vibe heightened the experience more. Thanks!

Best vegan pizza - Edit

This is by far the best vegan pizza I've had. They always have a ton of options. It's quick if you're in a rush but you can also eat there comfortably. Their desserts are also good.

Pros: Amazing pizza, Quick, Central location

Amazing Cookies!! - Edit

The closest thing to dairy pizza. My friends and I each got a slice: Spicy BBQ Pizza, Funghi and Cheesesteak. All three of them were great. One slice was enough for me... but of course, we had to split the cheese fries, which were also amazing. Everything is made right in front of you, so you know it's fresh. I'm from NJ, so I know what LEGIT good pizza should taste like. The crust and texture of the cheese is comparable to what I grew up with. For you healthy peeps, there are salads and wraps available. Don't forget to have a cookie! I had the Kitchen Sink and the Earlybird.

Pros: Has small desserts, Variety of pizzas and other entrees, Made fresh in front of you

Cons: Fattening (for the most part), Made me feel greasy and full... my fault, though!, only one location (as far as I know)

Best Vegan Cheese Steak by a Mile - Edit

I've tried vegan cheese steaks all over Philadelphia, and I've never wanted a second serving of any of them - until I went to Blackbird Pizzeria. If I had my druthers, I'd rename this place "Blackbird Vegan Steaks". As a beef-lover, I won't say it's as good as the better steak sandwiches I've had, but it's up there with the typical ones. The vegan pizza was also decent.

Pros: Best vegan cheese steak, Pretty good vegan pizza, Reasonable prices

Cons: still not as good as the real thing to a non-vegan

Wow. Fav vegan pizza in the world - Edit

I've had vegan pizza in a lot of cities around the US, and Blackbird is the one I fantasize about periodically. I can't wait until next time I'm in Philly to have some more. Tried their award winning cheesesteak - it was great, but that pizza is what I'll be eating next I go.

Pros: Pizza, Pizza, Pizza
