“Please go someplace else”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

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.

“Wonderful food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

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 lunch. You won't be disappointed.

“Cook is crazy!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012 via mobile

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.

“Don't go there!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2012

The cook/server was rude. We went in for lunch and she was scowling, tried to say hello and was ignored. It's not a fancy restaurant, if you Would like friendly service, nice restaurant, good prices don't eat there!

“Always the basic best breakfast in town. It is a working man's place but they can make the breakfast small too.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2012

Nothing very fancy but always the best breakfast available. Cooked in front of you so you know they are always doing everything right. You want a pancake made without sugar ... they can do it.
