Blue Door | Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio

Seemingly out of nowhere sprung a bustling little breakfast/lunch cafe and bakery that is sure to blow your mind.  The Blue Door in Cuyahoga Falls, our new fave weekend destination restaurant, is now so familiar that I can barely remember life before it opened.  Since it is slightly out of the way for us, we end up stopping in late on a Sunday morning, after developing a laundry list of (mostly imaginary) things we MUST accomplish in Akron.  And of course, they are PACKED.  Fortunately with only two of us (we opt to roll kid-free on this excursion) there is rarely a wait.  This level of culinary intensity is so unique for this area, it’s a miracle we can even get a table.  Since I’ve waited so inexcusably long to share with you, I have accumulated far too many food fotos.  But before getting to the eye candy, might I share a few reasons why Blue Door is a real success here in Northeast Ohio.
