Fresh quality and very tasty. Small but quant. I always find it open. You can enjoy your meal out in the sun under an umbrella, or inside at A counter or table with provided reading materials on local events including fishing info. I stop there often.

We went in for an early breakfast before taking a day's boat trip. The food was freshly cooked and my wife's pancake was particularly good. Great value.

We came across this place by accident and were really pleased we did. We found ourselves in Port Alberni on a Sunday morning, starving for something to eat. The Blue Door didn't look like much from the outside, but don't be fooled. Our waitress was friendly and chatty and the food was really good. I had an enormous pancake with... More

We wanted a good breakfast and saw the mixed reviews about Blue Door. Well we got a great breakfast and a pleasant conversation with the cook/hostess/waitress. We sat at the bar and she brought the local news paper over and we talked about the current floods in Calgary while our food was cooking. We were all alone and had a... More

Went there for breakfast and felt like u was in a place that did not know what it wanted to sell. It is a combo of a comer store and a school cafeteria. Please go someplace else for a better more enjoyable time.

The Blue Door Cafe down by the Port Alberni Quay is not fancy by any means. It is warm and inviting. The service is fast and friendly. The food is excellant. I love their wall mural of fish and clams down under the sea. After wandering around the Quay and looking at the boats, finish of there for coffee or... More

Went in for lunch and the cook was ranting about something. She was saying im sick of this im shutting down. When i left the doors shut early and a sign was slapped on the door "Closed until further notice". I won't go back there, I feel sorry for the poor server that had no idea what was going on.
