Blue Star Café and Pub

Posted On: March 6th, 2011

Tucked along Stone Avenue North in Seattle is the Blue Star Café and Pub. Started by Leon Torrey in 1997, the Blue Star Café and Pub is one of the top breakfast destinations in Seattle. The Blue Star Café and Pub serves amazing lunches, traditional dinners in a relaxing atmosphere. They specialize in serving Seattle’s best egg dishes.

Leon Torrey decided to use the Wilcox Family Farms’ brand 20 years ago. He realized Wilcox Family Farms was the quality local egg supplier. Recently they switched to using nothing but our cage-free eggs. Leon’s daughter General Manager Wendy Morales shares their story.

“We were notified by the Humane Society to look into using cage-free eggs. The Human Society recommended Wilcox Family Farms. I contacted Mark Wilcox. I presented the idea to Leon and Chef Tran. After tasting their samples we agreed to make the switch. Our customers enjoy the excellent taste. We’re pleased to be using Wilcox Family Farms’ products.”

According to Wendy they made the switch, because their customers wanted cage-free eggs. And they’re highly educated about sustainable foods and products.
