Nightmare Café was a short-lived American television series that aired on NBC from January to April of 1992 spanning a total of only six episodes. The series was produced by Wes Craven and starred horror film icon Robert Englund as the proprietor of an establishment known as the Nightmare Café. As the central setting of the series, the Nightmare Café was of supernatural and otherworldly origin, moving from locale to locale where customers would interact with the establishment's staff which included Englund's Blackie, a cook named Frank Nolan, played by Jack Coleman and a waitress named Fay Peronivic, played by Lindsay Frost. The series was ultimately discontinued due to poor ratings, but has been re-aired on the Sci-Fi Channel and on NBC's horror-themed cable channel, Chiller.
