Dining Review: The Bluebird Cafe

Wife and I are in Logan, UT for this year's paternal family reunion. Roots for us here, deep and wide, and many traditions … one of which is capping the night's dinner with ice cream at the Bluebird Cafe.

Some say Utah is locked in the 1950s; the Bluebird nests happily in 1924. A Logan landmark since the 1920s, The Bluebird retains every trapping of the old-style American cafe: mosaic floors, murals on the walls, high ceilings, and a marble soda counter. The ice cream: local, rich, scoops served deep. Also worth the visit are the hand-made chocolates, in the bottoms of which my sweet, Swedish grandmother notoriously poked holes with her pinky to sneak a peek at the flavor.

Three out of four crab forks, four if you’re a sentimentalist.

I grew up in Logan and remember the Bluebird Cafe very, very well and the chocolates (hand made) I am trying to order them on line and for some reason can't.

Just wondering if you found a way to order the bluebird chocolates online. My mom grew up in Logan and often talks about the bluebird cafe and chocolates. I'd like to order some for her.

While traveling in the West in 1959, I came upon the Bluebird Cafe in Utah. I ate there and had fond memories of it. Just recently inquired about its existance to the Ogden Chamber of Commerce (thinking that's where I'd found it) and they told me that indeed, it does still exist today in Logan. Hurray for good things enduring "progress". I hope to leave Michigan and travel to Logan again someday....just to see the Bluebird Cafe once again.
