This is an adorable Cafe tucked away between buildings in the charming waterfront town of Occoquan. Selected as a midway meeting place between VA and MD based on the posted reviews - we were not disappointed. Courtyard seating with colorful umbrellas available but we elected to eat inside (due to heat index). The restaurant itself is small and simple, but... More

If you want something difference for a light lunch try the Blue Arbor. They have the most unique and delicious sandwiches. Everyday they have a special feature including a tasty soup. Their lobster bisque is to die for. I have had lobster bisque at many upscale restaurants but this is definitely the best! They have indoor and outdoor seating and... More

My husband and I took our mother's to Blue Arbor on Mother's Day weekend. We all ordered something different. The special was French Dip and it was delicious and moist. I ordered the Not a Reuben. There was coleslaw instead of kraut, but it was still great. The club and BLT were also hits. There was no wait and our... More

This morning my friend was stopping by on her way through the area and we planned to take her for breakfast in Occoquan. Not many places in town serve breakfast during the week. This was a wonderful find. Great food and menu, tucked away along a brick footpath off Union. We decided to dine outside since it was one of... More

My husband and I stopped for lunch with my nephew, his wife and newborn son and enjoyed it so much. Nestled in historic Occoquan is this great breakfast and lunch cafe. The sandwiches were all so fresh with different types of breads. We tried the Harmon, chicken tarragon, French orchard and Mediterranean. All were delicious. Staff was very attentive and... More

If you are interested in great soups (all homemade of course) and interesting sandwiches you have to try the Blue Arbor. I have tried almost all of the sandwiches since they are different from what I would make at home. While I love the sandwiches my favorites are the lobster bisque and crème brule cheesecake. When I had the bisque... More

My family and I stopped here for lunch while we were visiting the shops in the area. I saw good reviews for this place and it was a beautiful sunny day outside so we went for it. The food was good and homemade, and there was a musician playing in the patio seating area. The service was excellent! Very polite... More

Home made sandwiches and soups for decent prices. Great choice menu and its seems to change sometimes which is nice. The chicken tarragon isd a staple on the menu and what I recommend as a go to sandwich if you are not feeling adventurous. Cute and quaint place with friendly staff. They have outdoor seating to which live bands/music are... More

We stopped here for lunch on our first visit to Occoquan. The young woman at the travel center recommended the place, and she did not steer us wrong! We ate outside, which was quite pleasant (although a few pesky flies). There were musicians playing Appalachian/jigs in the gazebo, which was a nice surprise if a little loud. We all had... More
