We were most pleased with a wonderful breakfast. Good ingredients, talented, hard-working cooks who are fast and a neat, open decor made this a real surprise. My husband found it running and we took a chance. We'll go back for sure.

The food is good and the staff is courteous and knowledgeable. They were able to accommodate food allergies, which is always a plus in our family. My only con would be food proportion compared to price. Great menu though.

Coffee that is far superior to Starbucks is the highlight. Food is passable. Interior is retro modern making it great place to plop down with your laptop. If you are looking for great food you will be disappointed. Think Starbucks with much broader selection.

Flying Star is a nice gathering space with good coffee, good pastries and average meals. The restaurant is very clean and the counter staff is very helpful. They should rethink their prices on meals. Great for early morning coffee!
