I go here when I want a hearty breakfast that is consistent. The atmosphere is a bit like a cafeteria (just big tables where you all sit together). Food is very consistent and reasonably priced.

The Blue Door Cafe is not fancy by any means. It is warm and inviting. The service is fast and friendly and the food is great. What more could a hungry person want? We sat by table indoor, (bad weather) but you can also sit at the counter facing the griddle where your food's being cooked. You can have eggs,... More

Clean, friendly, knowledgeable as to one's preferences. The cook/waitress/sous chef/local guide is personable. She may not know your name but she knows what you are likely to have to eat and will start it as she greets you with "The usual?" I stop by for brunch as often as I can. Prices are reasonable when compared to other restaurants in... More

Not great food, poor decor, and over priced.It looks trashy and dirty, and I think the owner is stressed and hates criticism.

We stopped off at Port Alberni for a road trip lunch, walked once around the quay and settled on the Blue Door for first class omelette and coffee. Nothing clever, but good to watch the food being cooked up in front of us, great to see such a squeaky-clean washroom, and a pleasure to be served by ladies who combined... More

We just needed to quickly grab some takeout and the train conductor had directed us to this cute little cafe. Two lovely women greeted us as we placed an order for takeout. The fries were pretty greasy but hey, they are fries...what do you expect?! Next time we're in town we'll stop in for a proper sit down meal.

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
