The Flying Star was my choice(yes, we returned!) for our lunch before going to a performance of the Nutcracker. I love the friendly staff and people who take our orders. We stuck with one Buddha bowl (chicken, veggies and brown rice)and grains and greens (kale, cauliflower, raisins, feta cheese, almonds and edamame with a lemon dressing, very tasty). We left...

I moved to Albuquerque 4 years ago; this was my first visit to a Flying Star. I am not impressed. This is not a restaurant in any sense of the word, merely an overpriced coffee shop that also serves sandwiches. We were there for a late breakfast. Every patron had a laptop. Considering that there is no service -- you... More

Food was good but the service was spotty. This location is in need of a makeover and the staff some training.

I know Flying Star from when it was Double Rainbow. It has been going downhill for years, but like an old divorced couple who see each other passing in the mall, decided to give it one last try since Relish was backed up. I was with two associates and we all agreed that the food was just awful. They have... More

Over the weekend we ate here twice and purchased desserts to go. Everything was AWESOME! I look forward to going back on a return trip to Albuquerque. The NM turkey green chile sausage was a nice addition to my breakfast. The power hash was amazing!! Huevos rancheros with green chile did not disappoint. The desserts were well thought out, they...

Had lunch at this location. The Cobb salad was very good, nice not overly large portion. I think Flying Star is a little overpriced for what it is. The coffee is average. The food and deserts tend to be above average. At noon the parking lot was full I got the last space I could see, but the service was... More

Always excellent, fantastic quality and diverse menu choices, excellent desserts, and super fun atmosphere. This place is always packed, but the service is great. When the weather is nice, the locations with patios are a treat. You can't miss it.
