The Blue Star Cafe is Downtown Detroit’s preferred breakfast, lunch, and catering destination for affordable, home-style cooking. Everything we prepare for breakfast, lunch or catered events is locally sourced and freshly prepared on site.

Corporate catering is our specialty, however, we service all occasions and have prepared everything from a simple BBQ Cookout to elaborate Black Tie at private residences. Our 25 years in catering along with a long list of satisfied corporate and individual customers speaks for itself.

While many of the finest catering services are recognizable by their advertising, Blue Star Detroit Catering is just as well-known for its food and service. There can be no great food without great service, and Blue Star’s trained wait staff are as vital as the presentation and flavor of the food. It is this complete experience that makes Blue Star Detroit highly requested throughout the tri-county area.

  • Thank you very much for the wonderful lunch that you catered yesterday for the Quicken Loans staff. Everyone I talked to LOVED the food. One vegetarian said that, of all the catered events she's ever attended, yours had the best selection fo a vegetarian like her. And several folks commented on the scrumptious cinnamon chips with strawberry salsa - to die for!!

  • Barry and his team have catered several events over the years and always exceed my expectations. Nothing is better than your guests asking who made the food and ask for their card - those referrals speak for themselves!
