West Seattle food: Blue Willow moving, making way for ‘new café’

Just out of the WSB inbox, from Blue Willow Luncheonette and Catering in The Junction:

After almost five years of serving West Seattle , the Luncheonette is being passed to new local ownership. Blue Willow Catering will continue at a new commercial kitchen location. We would like to celebrate this positive transition by offering discounted lunch specials on Tuesday, October 25th, our last day for lunch business.

Thank you to everyone in the Junction and West Seattle community for your continued business and support. We are excited to introduce this new café which will continue to be a warm, welcoming meeting place for the neighborhood.

Be assured that all catering events will remain unaffected by this transition. We will also do our best to honor any unused gift certificates and donations; please contact us to discuss options. You can continue to reach us at our Junction location until November 1st.

Thank you again for your loyalty and support.

    I heard a rumor that the new cafe will have a connection to Alki Girl Granola.

      Thanks, Gina, BW answered my query by saying the new owners weren’t ready to make an announcement yet, but we’ll be rooting around … TR

    Oh no! is my reaction too. Blue Willow luncheonette is one of a kind…with delicious, wholesome food, served by friendly staff, in a charming setting….I’ll definitely miss it.

    You guys served a great lunch about 1.5 minutes from home for me. Good luck in your new location. I’m hoping the new cafe will serve breakfast, too, there is a lack of breakfast places in the Junction.

    Wishing all the best to Patty and staff, but dang – I will miss that place!!!

    Sorry to hear about this. Although I wish you all the best, we at Providence Mount St. Vincent will miss having Blue Willow there for our frequent birthday lunches. Your food is good, prices great and oh my gosh – where will I be able to find those cookies now?

Sorry, comment time is over.
