What’s Clean

The lunch meats used in the open-faced sandwiches are organic as well as the eggs, beef, oatmeal, and most of the produce, including frozen fruits. The chicken, coffee, milks, and yogurt are not organic.

What’s Served

Definitely a European Bistro type menu that includes breakfast all day as well as open-faced sandwiches, soups, salads, cheese boards, and entrees. Entrees include meatloaf, mussel dishes, beef bourguignon, cheese ravioli, and a few more. They also serve beer and wine.

What I Ordered

Unfortunately, we arrived just before closing time on New Year’s Eve and many of the menu items were already sold out. The Tomato Soup was available and made with organic ingredients so that is what we ordered. Pardon the photo, we had to get it to go but the saving grace is that the soup was fantastic! The white beans and basil in this hearty and house-made tomato soup hit the spot. The bread was pretty darn good as well and perfect for dunking! On another visit, we sampled the Frittata made with sausage, mozzarella, and parmesan. Dense like quiche and substantial in size, Blue Dahlia certainly doesn’t skimp on fillings or portion size. The velvety frittata was infused with the perfect amount of cheese and the local pork sausage was fresh and flavorful.

The Vibe

Blue Dahlia has a laid back bistro feel with a lovely outdoor seating area under a pergola at the rear of the property. Outdoor seating is also available in front of the restaurant.

The Takeaway

The menu items are unique in this area, which is refreshing and welcomed. Variety is the spice of life and Blue Dahlia offers different, somewhat clean, and definitely delish food.
