Had an enjoyable lunch here last week. Chicken salad was very good and the service was good. We were a little uncomfortable because of all the termoil in Lexington at this time. We would like to return in October.....hopefully they’ll have most of their problems...More

I mistakenly wrote this review on another site. The baked goods at Blue Sky are fabulous, good and gooey. The lunch salads and sandwiches are also delicious. Love this place.

I didn't see any when we were there but I'm pretty sure I saw a dog water bowl. Lots of dogs around town so I am pretty sure it would be a yes.
