The Bluebird

Nestled in the small town of Stanford, Kentucky sits a cafe that is well worth the drive. It's one I kept hearing about from Kentucky friends and family. On the wedding week-end, a group of young people who arrived from Idaho and California for the event, joined Julia and Rylan made sure they enjoyed a hearty breakfast there before they started their Kentucky day and the busy wedding schedule! 

So, once the wedding was over and we had a day to relax before shuttling family back to the airport to meet their planes, we decided to check out the Bluebird for ourselves.

Now, who in the world would write an entire blog post about a restaurant? Well, I guess I would. Bear with me. There are some yummy food pictures coming up!

Dad was his usual cheerful self. He enjoys talking to people and engaged our waitress in conversation about the restaurant. 
Local. Fresh. Sustainable. Pure.

Our server was helpful in finding us exactly what we needed to meet our dietary needs. The vegetarian and gluten-free in our group came away happily satisfied with a great selection of foods.

Look at this for freshness! Pasta served with spinach, onion, and artichoke hearts. Add to that roasted red pepper, olives, and a good sprinkling of sunflower seeds.

Gluten free breads were available, like this wrap. They could be served around a variety of delicious gluten-free and vegetarian ingredients.

And you can never go wrong with made-from-scratch potato soup!

I'll admit that we did do some food sharing, simply so we could "try" the yummy looking foods that other family members had ordered. 

Alma looks satisfied. Everything was delicious!

And. . .I was able to buy a BLUE.bird mug so I can remember the experience as I sip on my tea here at home. Connections. LOVE. Memories.


  1. I think a restaurant that can deliver like this one does deserve a whole post! Glad you found it...

  2. Wonderful place! And, a girl can never have too many mugs -- especially ones with sweet memories attached!

  3. Don't you just love finding a place that serves good food and ambiance when traveling? This sounds and looks like a special place.

  4. We went to The Bluebird yesterday (Saturday) for a late lunch. We always share the delicious foods. Chef Bill is always happy to chat with us. And, BTW, he said he will always prepare something gluten free even if it's not on the menu. I love the Somerset Wrap on a GF tortilla. (Somerset is just south of Stanford)

  5. Sound's like a great place to enjoy a meal. My hubby and I love potato soup and had it last night.

  6. I'm so glad you got to the Bluebird! The food looks outstanding, and it's so wonderful you have a cup to remember your visit there!

  7. I loved visiting the Bluebird with you. But, my favorite was the mug you took home to remember your time there. What fun!

  8. That sounds like a wonderful place to eat! I like what they are doing with food.


  9. Yum! These foods look great, and I, too, would have come home with a souvenir tea mug!

  10. Oh my GOSH! That looked like a great place to eat. Yummy yum yum. Great photos, too. So glad you could go! Susan

  11. Everything looks so yummy. I would love to have the experience of eating in that cute little place. Thanks for sharing.
