Let me start by saying I had no idea they only allowed 1 dog per family out on the patio and I had 3. Never did anyone say anything to me and I really really appreciated that as I was traveling solo. The food was out of this world and the service perfect!

First, let me say that overall I am not a big fan of places that have you wait in line to order and then have a spot for a tip. We really enjoyed my wife's order of french toast and that was the highlight of the visit. They did a great job on everything about that order. The coffee was... More

The set up is walk in and order from the counter. Good array of choices. They bring the food to you but you are on your own for refills on drinks. The outside patio looked inviting but wanted to skip the flies and the heat of a July afternoon. There were some flies inside however. Rather pricey for the total... More

The patio was very beautiful and we sat out and visited for some time. The food was fresh, delicious and very prompt. We shared the Bird Burger and a salad. Very generous portions, best to split something!

We stopped in for a late night meal and this is a great little eatery and breakfast spot. The food offerings are varied with several healthy options.

The Flying Star Cafes are all over Albuquerque and there is one in Santa Fe. This one has a very nice outdoor seating area with big trees. There is a very cool bookstore next to it.

Tried the fish tacos on corn tortillas this time and the meal was perfect. Since dogs are allowed on the back patio, it's truly a family experience. Just don't go alone with your dog because you need to order inside, cafeteria style. Flying Star has never disappointed with the meals or hot chai. Great book store next door and other... More
