If you are in the Grand Marais area or plan to be, go out of your way to check out the Blue Water Cafe.
Located downtown near the harbor, Blue Water is a straightforward, hometown diner that features meat-and-potato classics.
Swedish pancakes, biscuits and gravy, buttermilk pancakes, patty melts, beef pot roast, broasted chicken, deep fried walleye… you name it.
Blue Water is a go-to for homemade comfort, Minnesota-style.
The generous sized portions certainly don’t hurt either. A favorite among locals and travelers alike, the lines can go out the door during peak season so plan to get there early. Ever been?
