Mary's Bleue Moon originally opened as Mary's Coffee Bar in 1939. It's goal was to serve the many airport personnel, locals, and wartime pilots, often with aircraft landing in the field across the street to unload their crew. It was named after the original owners stepdaughter Mary Chapman. In the early years, many people walked or drove many miles just to come in for a cup of coffee, a piece of pie or one of the world famous (so the pilots said) cinnamon buns.
Many owners have come and gone, as have staff and locals, but the food and the service only gets better. For the past 20 years Ross Clark and his wife Val, have owned and operated the restaurant and now they are handing the reins over to the next generation. Ross and Val's daughter Nicola, her husband Mike, and Chef Adam Hill are partners in ensuring that the high standards set by Ross are maintained on a daily basis.
Here at Mary's we are very proud of our local and international heritage and we display many articles and pictures that were donated from around the world. One never knows what familiar face may be found on our walls. Please feel free to enjoy our history in its original atmosphere. We strive to continue with the Mary's tradition. Good food, good service, and good times! Enjoy!
