Flying Star is a local favorite and has something for almost everyone in your troop. Specializing in what we used to call "California Style" cuisine, you can order at the counter and they bring your food (or pasty & coffee) out to your table when...More

The Flying Star is a great place for a casual lunch. The food is good and it has a unique atmosphere. There is always a crowd but you can generally get a table and served fairly quickly.

Good combination- don't you agree? We were comfortable and relaxed sitting outside munching on our well prepared salad. Mine contained a handful of roasted chickpeas and a few lovely mini falafels with dill sauce. Lovely! Boyfriend had tossed Cobb. Scrumptious, he said! Bread pudding was...More

Never been to any of these cafes - I was amazed at the selection they had. Breakfast all day or choose a burger...it's all your choice!

The salads at Flying Star are good, but expensive. The portions for the other items are quite small, especially at $11.00 and higher. The food is quite good, the locations are nice, clean, and modern. The staff is friendly, but although the tables are bussed...More
