Our Story

The coffee shop at Doughton Park on the Blue Ridge Parkway welcomed generations of locals and travelers during its original 61 years of operation. Thanks to the support of those devoted patrons and many others, The Bluffs will reopen in the spring of 2021 to welcome diners once again for great home-style cooking.
