If your traveling down 95 between DC and Fredericksburg, there is a small town called Occoquan. Blink and you will miss it. Hidden away in a small back area is the Blue arbor café. This is one of those once in a lifetime finds. Not many tables, not very impressive from the outside, but the food, the service and the... More

We eat at this restaurant regularly when we are visiting Occoquan. Their soup and sandwich offerings are awesome. Salads are very good. Walking through the town, we take are yellow Lab. This restaurant is very accommodating to pets when we sit at the outdoor tables. Water for the doghis always provided.

On a pretty day the outside tables provide great casual seating. The cafe is in a small courtyard away from traffic. Nice selection of sandwiches and snacks. Prices are reasonable.

There is a take out associated with it but have not had anything there. There is also outside seating in the courtyard and it is... More

We go to the Blue Arbor Cafe when we want a great sandwich. Outdoor seating at circular patio tables is very relaxing and is great for little kids who like openness. Breakfast there was very nice as well - small but cozy inside.

We stopped here late afternoon on a sunny day just for dessert and sat outside. The service was fast and the server pleasant. We ordered the carrot cake, which was wonderful -- light, flavorful, and with a tasty icing. Next time we will try lunch along with dessert!

Charming restaurant tucked away off an alley in Occoquan. Great deal; we had sandwiches and drinks (shout out for the beautiful hot chocolate with whipped cream on top!) for around $20. The menu is not extensive; soups, salads, and sandwiches, and breakfast before noon, but they offer quality ingredients and friendly service in a lovely atmosphere.
