Our Story

Originally opened in 1983, a 32-seat bistro on Ainslie Street North, The Blackshop has become a Cambridge landmark. Opened by the Cerny Family, they were one of the pioneers of food entrepreneurism in Cambridge and Waterloo Region. 9 and half years later the restaurant moved to its Hobson street location. There it sat until 2006, when the Blackshop moved to its current location on Hespeler road.

While the Blackshop isn’t owned by the Cerny Family anymore, we are committed to upholding its traditions, and legacy. Providing classic European cuisine in a vibrant space. Allow us to entertain you for brunch, lunch or dinner. Enjoy our extensive list of rotating fabulous wines. Sit cozy by one of our fireplaces with your friends and family.

Welcome to the Blackshop, we are happy to serve you.
