“Great Spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

We have a Flying Star closer to home now so we haven't come here in forever but we used to come all the time. The menu is consistent with the other locations but this one is next door to a fun book store which is also enjoyable.

“Eggs Florentine for Brunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We had a delicious brunch at the Flying Star. The atmosphere is always welcoming and food is consistently good. We both had delicious eggs florentine that included a side of sliced tomatoes and felt a bit lighter and healthier. I always enjoy their robust coffee and a nice fire out on the patio if you want to sit outside. This is one of my most favorite spots in ABQ to hang out!

“Always nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Flying Star is always nice for a change. Deserts and baked good are outstanding as well as salads. Really enjoy the laid back atmosphere...

“always busy...do we expect so little?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

The menu always sounds really good- but the food is always a disappointment- and expensive for what you get. The desserts ARE good- but I am always let down here....and I look around and think, "really? all these people think it is great??"
