History and a bite to eat.....

In Grand Marais Minnesota is a favorite place to dine. If you're looking for causal and good food this is the spot. Good view of the harbor as well. But it wasn't always called the Blue Water Cafe.
Back when it was called Dunord Cafe. Looks about the same as it did over 50 years ago! It's been the morning spot as long as folks can remember. Friends that had come in the 1960's still recall getting breakfast there. Good memories my friend tells me. They visited Grandpa's cabin on the Gunflint's East Bearskin Lake years ago. The family slides are priceless. It's a piece of history not only of the family but of the North shore as well. And speaking of the shore there was the Shore Theater right next door to the DuNord Cafe. It was the only theater north of Duluth in that time. It seated 200 people and opened in the 40's and the marque was removed in the early 1980's. The building is still there. And the last picture was my nice dinner at the Blue Water Cafe, the Rib eye was excellent. I was most pleased about it and frankly surprised at how good it was considering the bargain price. After running around all day on the shoreline and hiking in the woods what could be better?
