Blackboard Bistro

Blackboard Bistro and catering opened its doors in Spring of 2016 in the former Rosendale Elementary School, now Rondout Municipal Center. Blackboard Bistro has become the go-to breakfast and lunch spot in the area. From fresh carved meats for sandwiches, healthy salads, and daily specials, Blackboard Bistro has something for everyone. Our extensive catering menu is made fresh and ready for pick up or delivery. Whether it’s for a birthday, a bridal shower or baby shower, a company party or a private party, we can satisfy all of your catering needs.

What makes Blackboard Bistro unique? Most of our employees are people with intellectual or developmental disabilities. Blackboard Bistro is a place where employees can work in an encouraging environment to learn how to take orders, make salads & sandwiches, prep orders, cash customers out, and interact with people in the community. Working here has given employees the opportunity to gain valuable food service skills to compete for future employment opportunities in area businesses.
