While waiting for our entrees, we were served the most delicious cornbread. Green chilis, cheddar cheese and whole kernels of corn made this one of the best cornbreads that I have had in a long time. With or without butter, they were simply amazing.

The side House Salad ($3.25) was a medley of locally sourced greens and organic goodness.  I had never tried Pecan Ranch dressing until now, and it was the perfect companion to the shredded beets and toasted peppered pecans.

The Lobster Macaroni & Cheese (19.95) was simply divine!  This cheesy masterpiece had huge chunks of lobster, green peas and a rich sauce that brought me comfort and delight.  Served with a side of greens and freshly grated Parmesan Cheese, this meal is sure to please.

The Braised Lamb Shank Buenos Aires ($18.25) was flavorful and hearty.  The tender lamb just fell right off the bone, and the savory juices saturated the potatoe-zucchini latkes with deliciousness.



We couldn't leave without trying the Grilled Pesto Shrimp & Sweet Pea Risotto ($21.50).  The jumbo pesto shrimp were grilled to perfection and perched on top a bed of risotto.  The symphony of flavors was just spectacular.


Blue Sky Cafe is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner 7 days a week.  With 20 local wines being sold by the glass, they are sure to have one that pairs perfectly with the entree of your choice. Whether celebrating a special occasion or just dinner out with friends,  you will find great food, great waitstaff and an amazing culinary experience waiting for you at Big Sky Cafe.

I absolutely love colorful and visually appealing food, and it looks like this café does just that. The Lobster Macaroni & Cheese sounds like something that I would love to try (minus the peas). And whoa, those are some giant shrimp!


MMMMM. That looks yummy! I must be hungry. . . all your pictures look delicious.
I’m glad you enjoyed everything at Blue Sky. Too bad it’s over 1,000 miles away.


I think I would eat my weight in those cornbread biscuits! YUM! Sadly, I’d have to skip the lobster mac and cheese and the shrimp dish since I’m super allergic to shellfish, but I’d love to see what else they’ve got on their menu. If the shellfish dishes look that good, I bet they’ve got some awesome stuff I can eat. 🙂
