The Blue Mirror Cafe ...

... long a Conover landmark.


From its beginning, as a top-notch cafe, the Blue Mirror
drew clientele from Hickory, Newton, Maiden, and beyond.

The Blue Mirror Cafe underwent a transition
as a truck stop before it became a bar.

As competition for eateries increased, the Blue Mirror, unable to
provide the ambiance that customers expected, became a "road house."

The number of police calls to the Blue Mirror Cafe each
weekend evening were danger signals before its eventual demise.

Its legacy would be that of a struggling used car sales lot.
