A Wilmington Landmark for Blue Monday


This very blue restaurant sits at 2 Market Street in Wilmington, North Carolina. It was the Union Restaurant, back in the 1920’s. In the 1980’s, it became famous as Roy’s Riverboat Landing. Today it is The Union Cafe. Whatever it’s name happens to be, y’all, there is no other place quite like it. Yes, you can actually dine upstairs on the tiny balcony, at a tiny, romantic table for two, overlooking the Cape Fear River.

It’s easy to do, and pretty self-explanatory. Post a photograph of something blue, go to Blue Monday, here, and add your blog. Then sit back and wait for the comments to roll in! Oh yeah, and it helps if you spread some bloggy love, by commenting on all the other lovely blue pictures.

  1. I love the color of that building. I don’t know why more places don’t have fun colors like that. My neighbors would just die if I painted my house that color.

  2. Your blog brings back so many wonderful memories of “Downtown” and Wrightsville Beach..born and raised in the area but left after HS graduation for the North..but NC always been “home” to me, always will. Spent many days laying on the beach right by Johnnie Mercer’s pier.. Yep, they had the best chili hot dogs at the pier snack bar, and of course, you had to get a Sundrop soda to go with it!

    We took a trolley tour back in 2007 when we were visiting there and the trolly tour guide was telling us the price of those condos was pretty pricey. Don’t recall it being painted blue back then but I could be wrong.

  3. Ginger, I remember that building but don’t remember it being the Blue/teal color. I actually saw people having lunch or dinner sitting on the balcony and I thought “How cool it would be to live there.”
