West Seattle restaurants: Sign’s up for Fiddlehead Fine Foods

Thanks to BJ, proprietor of Brunette Mix (WSB sponsor) in The Junction, for sharing the photo of her new neighbors from Fiddlehead Fine Foods and Café, putting up their sign today. We had noticed just yesterday that one of their doors was topped with a rendering of their namesake fern:

Fiddlehead is the coming-soon breakfast/lunch café that’s taken over the former Blue Willow Catering/Luncheonette spot at 4310 SW Oregon, just steps west of California SW. We’re still working to get key Fiddlehead details such as target opening date, and we’ll report ’em when we get ’em. Blue Willow, you might recall, moved out four months ago, saying it would continue its catering operations from a commercial kitchen elsewhere.

    I saw the door yesterday and wondered if it was going to be called Fiddlehead now. So exciting to see something coming back to that spot.

    Itd be nice to get a good breakfast spot nearby since charleston shut down.

    Cool name and logo. Hope to get a chance to eat their soon after they open.

    I hope to see a menu soon. My friends and I miss the Charleston and the Blue Willow. Nice name.

    Welcome to the ‘hood!

    Speaking of restaurants, what’s the status of the Fleur de Lys and West City Sardine Kitchen, two restaurant new additions I’m also looking forward to.

  • Hungry February 26, 2012 (8:26 am)

    Can’t wait to try it. I hope it is nothing like the Charleston!

  • bg February 26, 2012 (11:54 am)

    rw, according to Fleur de Lys’ Facebook they aren’t going to be opening up as a regular service restaurant after all, sounds like they are going towards catering.

  • bg February 26, 2012 (12:45 pm)

    I guess it’s only true if Jan cuts and pastes a link. Sorry I didn’t follow protocol.

  • miws February 26, 2012 (2:30 pm)

    Ummmm….bg, Jan was trying to be helpful, just as you were.


    Also, considering the fact that Jan’s posting is only 17 minutes after your posting, it’s possible she hadn’t even seen yours, and that being their FB page was also her source, was coincidental…

    Please tell me they have burger n fries

  • ttt February 26, 2012 (3:56 pm)

    can’t wait to see their menu! Love the name & logo!

  • JanS February 26, 2012 (7:38 pm)

    yes, bg, I didn’t see your post…sorry if I stepped on your toes…was just trying to give the “latest” that rw asked for…

  • ILoveWestSeattle February 26, 2012 (8:31 pm)

    I agree, we need a good/affordable breakfast place in West Seattle since Charlestown Cafe closed..best pancakes and omelettes, great friendly staff–we miss it very much and hope for someting comparable soon.

  • Been There February 26, 2012 (10:23 pm)

    Used to be a Fiddlehead restaurant in Juneau. Great place, yet I heard it closed several years back. Surely not related to this WS version. Hoping the best for this Fiddlehead.

  • Sylvia February 27, 2012 (9:39 am)

    Charlestown, Charlestown, Charlestown. Loved it! Don’t be it, study it.

  • monroe1200 February 27, 2012 (10:56 am)

    Charlestown? Really? It might have been good a looong time ago, but it was awful the last few years that they were open. Retirement home food is what it always reminded me of, but that is just my opinion. I hope this new place is a success!

  • miss seattle February 28, 2012 (2:45 pm)

    can’t wait ! should be an awesome place, i hear the peeps that are opening are both accomplished chefs, so the food should be yummy. not pricey either, that’s not their style. and they are not affiliated with fleur de lys.

    • WSB February 28, 2012 (2:56 pm)

      If you know them, please ask them if they’ll PLEASE answer my notes … We also have driven by about 10 times since BJ sent the photo and haven’t spotted door open, people outside, anything else. Would just like to share a few details with the folks. – TR

Sorry, comment time is over.
