– Bluerose –

[ A Love affair with Food ]


Bluerose has been a much loved gathering place for the community of West Ashley since it opened its doors in 2004. This unassuming spot has hosted students, professionals, travelers, and old friends - all of whom have found solace in its relaxed & unpretentious environs. A place where a cup of espresso, a warm smile or a friendly embrace epitomized life’s simple pleasures.

Now in its latest incarnation as Bluerose, its new owners, all lifelong industry professionals and old friends, have breathed new life into this beloved locale. To founder Dennis O'Doherty, we salute your many, many years of dedicated service and hope to keep The Bluerose Cafe - in some regards - exactly what it has always been: an incredible community gathering place, filled with warm smiles, laughter, friendships, and love.

A wonderful name "Bluerose." As we dug deeper, we found unexpected depth to this gentle symbol. When a path has a wonderous, inexplicable beginning, our heart floods with a sense of awe too deep be described. It is that kind of inexpressible joy which can be represented through a blue rose. Blue roses artistically invoke love, mystery, prosperity, and even immortality. 

As we move into the next chapter in the life of "Bluerose," we will respect and nurture the relationships built over the years with both the people and place that make this restaurant so special. 

In 2018, the ladies and gentlemen of Montford hope to make some changes, with the best possible intentions, which we hope you will enjoy: a little t.l.c. for the brick and mortar, global wines, local beers, Black Tap coffee, Fili-West Farm eggs, and Saffron's incredible baked goods, just to name a few. 

Here's to a wondrous new beginning and a sense of deep joy! We look forward to meeting you all, and bon appétit!

Welcome to Bluerose 2018, where everything old is new again.
