A New Beginning for Bluffs Coffee Shop
For 60 years, Blue Ridge Parkway travelers stopped at Bluffs Coffee Shop for the down-home cooking and a cup of joe before heading out to explore the scenic route. Sadly, the landmark closed in 2010, but we are working to reopen its doors so it can once again be a gathering place for locals and visitors alike.
