Characters Present


Steve & Blue have set up a restaurant called Cafe Blue. They've got fancy tables and menus, Mr. Salt & Mrs. Pepper as chefs and they can't wait to begin serving food. We help them out with this as they find that it isn't as easy as they thought when they're missing some of the things they need for the meal. Steve & Mr. Salt skidoo into a picture of a grocery store in order to retrieve the missing items from Spatula & Bowl, who were not seen. By working together and using math, logic and observational skills, we help them to prepare meals for Shovel, Pail, Tickety & Periwinkle.




  • Steve: Hey Blue, what do you think we should make for dessert? That's a great idea. We'll play Blue's Clues to figure out what we should make for dessert. What a delicious idea.


  • This is the only time that Mr. Salt skidoos on this episode. He previously made a cameo appearance at the bakery in the season 1 episode "What Does Blue Want to Make?". But he didn't skidoo in that episode.
  • Unless the previous episodes Periwinkle was presented outside the Blue's Clues house (Including the long episode "Blue's Big Musical"), this is his 1st time inside.
  • At the beginning of the skidoo segment, Blue was barking offscreen, but she skidooed back home early. She gets apple juice and carrot sticks for the customers.
  • Steve's solution of making the drinks even by pouring some of one into another is only practical if nobody has started drinking yet. Even in that case, most restaurant patrons would likely balk at this idea.
  • This episode is on the 2001 VHS of the same episode (Along with the series pilot Snack Time) and the first of the 2 bonus episodes on the 2004 DVD release of Blue's Room "Snacktime Playdate" (Along with The Grow Show!).
  • Valerie Riccardi, one of Steve's Friends in this episode, is mentioned by first name (Valerie) in the Video Letter segment.
  • At the end of the outro, the closing credits music fades out, and the last bit plays when the series title fades to blank. This was shown before the Nick Jr. Productions logo.
  • When Steve and Mr. Salt skidooed to Grocery Store. It used background music from Present Store in Mailbox's Birthday and Math.
  • This is the last episode where Periwinkle was voiced by Cameron Bowen.


  • Robert Iredell is credited as Robert A. Irdell.
