“Great breakfast on mn north shore”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

With few choices for breakfast at 7 am on hwy 61, Blue Water Cafe in Grand Marais provided a hearty and tasty breakfast that carried us through the day. The blueberry and wild rice pancakes are unique and tasty. Service was friendly and prompt, it is a pretty spot to linger, so we were able to get on our way. Coffee could have been a little stronger for my taste, but others in our party were satisfied.

“Great Breakfast and good service”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

Food was great! I had the Swedish pancakes which were perfect. If they could improve( sorry I like good strong coffee) their coffee it would have been perfect.

“Local Diner with Soul”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

The locals flock here, but there is a decent amount of seating so if there was a wait it might not be long. GREAT breakfast, cooked exactly as ordered. Servers very personable. Comfy seating. Big mural of Lake Superior on one wall. Another wall is mostly glass and gives you a great view of the street for people watching. I'd like to return for the Storm Festival in November and hunker down after being on the shore with a big cup of their excellent joe!
