"Blue River Cafe will always call to mind some of the most special people in my life. Shared many wonderful meals there. Very difficult loss for so many people and the community of Milltown." -- Natalie Bowlds Hundley

" I never thought the loss of a building would be like the loss of a friend. The Blue River Cafe was a birthplace of friendships, a home for the homeless and a central hub for a group of the most amazing community I've ever been... a part of. Today is a very sad day." --Lisa Mc Spadden

If it rains, we will move above the Blue Heron Gallery upstairs and across the street from where the Blue River Cafe stood.
