First time at Skyline Cafe. I had the blackbean burger wrap with scrumptious fresh fruit. Love that homemade chipotle they make. I had to have a bite of my husbands burger and it was wonderful. Their fries are awesome as well as their service. The staff was friendly and made you feel at home. We will be back. Well done

Thank Mary B

Family-friendly (kid-friendly) awesome place for breakfast or lunch. Located in the old terminal (next door to the Historic Aviation Museum) this restaurant serves up and fun as you are seated along the runway for landing private planes! (Find them on facebook for special event fly-ins.)

Good food. Fun environment. Very clean and tidy.

Be sure to have enough time to tour the Historic Aviation Museum next to the Skyline Cafe. An amazing collection!

Our family of five stopped by this place on our first visit to Tyler after reading good reviews on TA. We arrived at 2:15pm on a Friday and noted how they are only open until 2pm each day and were about to turn around but had to use the restrooms located in the airport near the cafe. Well good thing we did because the cafe just happened to be open because there was a crowd of people waiting on planes arriving for the next days airshow. Now what I hope for in a burger/cafe is that the meat is not swimming in grease and the fries should not be oil laden...pretty simple. Well the burgers (we all five had burgers) were not greasy, plenty tasty, juicy and delicious with the fresh ingredients. And the fries were perfectly crispy and so good and not the dripping messes that small cafes can usually make. They had a variety of healthful items listed too but I generally go for the basics when trying a new place. The waitstaff was friendly and accommodating (since they were open past there usual time) and should our daughter choose to go to school at UT this would be a place we would happily revisit.

Saw the reviews on trip advisor for this cafe. Was new to the area & decided to try it. Had no idea it was at an airport! Regardless we had some goods laughs about that fact. And gave it a try. Friendly people. Food just ok. Though, wraps looked good. Something we didn't try.

Found out about this neat place from a friend in Van. We love the fresh organic salads and healthy food choices they offer. I've even had protein pancakes for breakfast. Everything is made from scratch, owners on premisses most of the time, excellent service. What more can you ask for? Oh yeah ..... Nice view out their windows of Airplanes taking off and landing. To the review above on the eggs ... I specifically asked the owner if they use real eggs or not. Lol They do use real eggs. I order egg white omelette sometimes. Don't know about the wired taste though lol. We're hooked on Skyline.
