The Blue Door Pub

1811 Selby Ave. St. Paul, MN 55104 | Macalester/Groveland | 651-493-1865

Location Description:

With a menu driven by Jucy Lucys and all manner of fried goods (green beans, cheese curds, Spam bites, etc.), the Blue Door Pub is low on pretense but high on creativity and passion. The menu is dominated by scratch-made pub grub that puts a premium on quality and taste, and the atmosphere is friendly. Try the Breakfast Lucy ($8.50) if you're in the mood for something deliciously over the top. The creaminess of the fried egg, plus the thick-cut salty bacon, plus the burger, plus a whole mess of liquid cheese add up to one devilishly delicious meal on a bun.
