This is a place that many do not know about. It has a great setting and also great coffee and food. Their breakfast is delicious. The prices at not bad either. Worth checking out.

Starlite is a great little breakfast and lunch spot in Gonzales. Love the choices of food, salads, bakery items, etc.. Their blueberry muffins are heavenly. Food is fresh and service is family friendly.

Very casual cafe with great food. Good for a quick lunch or a longer lunch visit with friends. I've eaten several different meals at this cafe and they are all very good.

I eat here periodically. The chicken salad croissant is my favorite. Other sandwiches I've tried are also good. Homemade cakes, pies, muffins, and other desserts are great if you like sweets. Flavored teas and coffees also popular. Will eat here again when in Gonzales.

This hidden little gem is so very under appreciated for the breakfast. Wonderful service and excellent food. The star omelette is fantastic.

One cannot go wrong with this 'home-owned" restaurant.Very clean and cute atmosphere. Food is very well prepared, fresh and consistent. Order at the counter and food is prepared immediately. AND service with a smile! One of my favorite places!

More of a breakfast, lunch place. Usually not opened for dinner. Trys to be a hip place but it's not. Quiche okay. Chicken salad taste like chicken salad from a can. Yuk!
