My kids love going to Star Cafe for the warm dinner rolls they serve you as appetizer. I've had some good pasta and fish dishes. The service is good, but there is a very nice older busboy who has worked there for many years, and he is super nice. There is a nice separate area on the second level, and... More

This is a family owned restaurant. They are an amazing family who love their community. The food is exceptional and ALWAYS delicious. My husband always gets the blackened chicken angle hair pasta, my daughter loves the calzone and I love the spaghetti with meat sauce. The garlic rolls that come with the dinner are beyond delicious. The service is always... More

My friend and I went in this am for breakfast. The menu looked good and they had a lot of unique options. when we sat down we were given a warm muffin. Unfortunately it wasn't very good but that may have just been that flavor. We ordered 2 espresso drinks which they get from the coffee shop next door. I... More

Your mother told you to "never play with your food!" What she didn't say was "Let the Star Cafe Do It For You!" I love to cook and I love to find places that cook as well or better than I do. And here's one of those. I'm sure the chef is smiling while he is cooking your meal.. A... More

We've been going to Star Cafe for years, with friends and family, enjoying their fish specials and BLTA pizza. Sawdust on the floor and great service.

Our waiter was excellent. We had a party of 10 and he was working his butt off. The food came out quick and he was on top of all of our needs. My daughter and the rest of our party loved the bread-it was a cross between a biscuit and a croissant. You cannot go wrong with any of the... More

All the staff seemed to be in a hurry. It's hard to have a relaxing lunch when people are running frantically around just trying to keep up. All 3 of us ordered salads & there was nothing memorable about any of them. We've been here before but this visit did not meet expectations.

This is a small restaurant in Montrose, CA on the main street. We had a great lunch. The food was perfect, coffee and tea made it very obvious that the restaurant uses filtered water. The service from the person who showed us to our table, to our waiter "Marsha", and the guy who bussed our table. We were treated like... More
