Good Food/Good Prices – So this is a great restaurant. Kinda like a large diner actually. They have good breakfasts and large portions for decent prices. I can see why a lot of college kids flock here.
The coffee is nasty and burnt and was 2/75, so I could have gone to Starbucks for cheaper but the food was good, except for the biscuits. Don't be fooled! They look great and are nice and big but are dry and nasty. My husband pretty much eats anything, especially if you can put butter and jelly on it and he even passed it up after 1 bite!
Go here though, great laid back spot, esp if you are on a budget.
Breakfast was great! – I just tried this place for brunch last weekend. I was amazed at the selection of options. Everything on the menu sounded amazing! I chose one of the scrambles and I was not let down. The prices were pretty decent and the service was too. I'd come back!
Great Breakfast! – Blue Star Cafe has an awesome breakfast menu for pretty much anything you're in the mood for. The omelettes and scrambles are awesome and you can choose a yummy scone instead of toast. I also love the chilaquiles and breakfast burrito. The wait can be a little long mid-morning on the weekends so we try and get there early to beat the crowds. We always stop at Archie McPhee's next door afterwards to look at all their bizarre merchandise...everything from yodeling pickles to bacon-flavored bubble gum!
Amazing food and the service just keeps getting better! – The Blue Star is a great mix of homey and urban. We have a full bar, amazing food and we are always working to improve our staff and guest experience.
I'm a server t the Blue Star and in the past two years I've seen dramatic improvement in our staff and management.
We appreciate our customers and want them to come back time and time again for the best food and company in Wallingford.
We are hosting an Art pARTy on Friday March 5th and hope to see you there. For details, you can go to my facebook page and RSVP at Art pARTy Seaon Opener.
"Owner Message" is full of BS!! – I used to go to the Blue Star when it first opened. The "Owner Message" here says "Blue Star Cafe and Pub has been serving American comfort food for over 30 years. Located in the former Blue Star Brewery on Stone Way."
What a load of crap. The Eggs Cetera's may have been around for 30 years, but the Blue Star opened Dec 1, 1992, and I was there.
It's not in "the former Blue Star Brewery", but what was a tavern for many years. The Blue Star got it's name from Aurora/Highway 99's designation as a Blue Star Highway. It has decent breakfasts, but the service is spotty, as is the food, which actually has been a hallmark of Eggs Cetera.
One thing that's memorable is that when Steve Cohn (who founded the Metropolitan Grill)opened the Blue Star, it was Seattle's first pub that was non-smoking from the very start. I had some excellent evenings, meals, and beers here. Al, Marty, Greg, Kaisa, and the rest of the original staff here should be hired to train the current staff, and whoever wrote the Owner Message should know what they're talking about before publishing misinformation
Thank you for contributing this amazing history, your thoughts on how our profile was entered & how it appeared misleading. The addition of 'The owner of the" Blue Star Cafe and Pub, Leon Torrey, has served American comfort food... " was certainly needed in our profile to clarify that it was not only in the Blue Star Pub (purchased in 1997), but in 2 other popular locations; Madison Park and Broadway. We're passionate about our customers, the service we provide, and the food we serve!
Awesome Lunch spot! – We go here pretty regularly for lunch and always have a great experience. I usually get a salad or sometimes an omelette for lunch, have been here for brunch too and always get a bloody mary that is awesome...Oh yeah, and it has the best breakfast / brunch in all of wallingford. Sometimes a line though
I love this place!! I usually go here in Friday nights for dinner after work. Rarely crowded, we can always get a booth. They serve great sandwiches and have an extensive beer list. A few summers ago I had the best drink....cannot remember what it was called, but it was fantastic!!!
NOT the best waffle in town. Soggy salads. Good fries though. – This place is okay as far as pubs go and they have an extensive menu. Burgers are slightly above decent and the fries are good. Oh, and salads are not their forte. Unfortunately I decided to rate this place today after just leaving for brunch. I've been spoiled by the fluffy yet crisp Belgian waffles at Julia?s (Wallingford location only. The Capital Hill Julia's serves an awful breakfast). Blue Star touts their "best waffle in town." It's on their website at least. This is simply not true. Their waffles are terrible. They're thin, flimsy, soggy and definitely not the best. Not even close. I think they may win on their omelets though. From what I can tell from peering at the table beside us, the omelets and the sides that come with them, are substantial and look tasty.
Awesome sandwich and cuties working there – I went into Bluestar a couple of days ago with some co-workers for lunch, nice place with a friend staff (and some cuties working there), had a beer and a pastrami sandwich. Very delicious, I would recommend this place - seems like some of the reviews are pretty nit-picky.
Terrible, thoughtless service – Lousy, slow, uncaring service by smug servers. I've had a few bad incidents there, but the last time took the cake. My parents were in town for the birth of my baby. At 9 months pregnant, the hostess showed us a booth when there were clearly open tables nearby. When I said I couldn't get in due to my stomach, she acted like it was my problem to deal with. We finally just moved to another table ourselves. The cream for coffee was curdled, and when we told the server, she brought us new creamer, but couldn't be bothered to remove the old stuff from the table. Guess what ended up in my father's coffee. Isn't it a health violation to knowingly leave bad food on a table? The place was about 2/3 full, but we waited over half an hour for our food. My parents were stunned that this place was supposed to be one of Seattle's best brunch places, and my husband and I were embarrassed.
