I love everything about Blackboard Grocery & Eatery on Dickson from the cool, urban vibe to the bright open window in front of the sandwich bar. This, my friends, is a true Fayetteville find and definitely something needed in the area.
Um, yes, they have breakfast tacos! Take it from someone who recently moved from Dallas, breakfast tacos are sorely underrepresented in Fayetteville. Owner Lycia Shrum hails from Austin, so naturally, she knows a thing or two about building a breakfast taco.
Located at 644 W. Dickson (closer to campus than not), Blackboard has been open not quite a year. The small grocereatery (#madeupword) contains staple grocery items, an impressive coffee/tea menu (featuring local Onyx Coffee and Savoy Tea), yummy pastries, and a full kitchen in back where sandwiches are made fresh to order. And, of course, Blackboard has gluten-free and vegetarian friendly choices.
I can easily give five stars to the Latte I grabbed last week on my way out of town. It was creamy and piping hot, and I wish I had one now.
Blackboard is a jewel box of a place—everything about it seems thoughtfully arranged and carefully selected. I even love the font used on the menu board. Fonts matter, y’all.

Musical Pairing: (that has nothing to do with Blackboard other than a cool place deserves a cool song from a cool Austin band…)
