Get your food before coming to the airport. This is the only place to eat and the food is mostly pre-made deli stuff. Lack of premium alcohol if you can even get service.

I had an early flight out of newport news VA and this place was next to a few departing gates in this small airport. I was grateful to be able to get fresh coffee and a muffin for breakfast here. There was one person working there early in the morning so the service was a bit slow but it got... More

Man!!! This place is so cool! Comfortable relaxing atmosphere with little crowd (probably not always). The sweetest staff possible with really good hot food when they are open (there are breaks through the day depending on flight times). Overall, I was truly happy with the small, cute, accommodating and comforting atmosphere!

Opened 1/2 hour late. Asked about breakfast and received a curt "No". Very slow food delivery. Food was okay. Avoid if you can.

The only redeeming feature is the staff - they're always friendly. But I'd rather get something across the street and eat it in the waiting area than eat at this place.

This restaurant was way better than I was expecting saying they are the only place you can eat real food at at this airport. Service was spotty though (they never rang in my order) and you have to pay and tip upfront which was annoying when I had to wait 40 minutes on a sandwich. However, the Reuben was really... More

Blue Sky would rate very good if it were outside an airport. The crab cake sandwich is one of the best I have enjoyed. The hamburger is excellent. The Reuben is great. The Cuban is just average. They have a small selection of good draft beers. Service is excellent.

Stopped in this Blue Sky Cafe while waiting for a few hours before my flight was to leave, nice place to grab a good sandwhich and has a small bar too. Had a BLT with fries and sweet tea, fresh brewed, reasonable cost for being on the Newport News Airport

Spent 2.5 hours there on 11/25/2012. Food surprisingly good, prices very reasonable, and bartender JASMINE was a riot! Very upbeat young lady, who obviously likes her job and will go far in life! Made the long wait time for our flight pass by very quickly.
