I have been going to the Flying Star since the early 1990s, when it was called Double Rainbow and they only had one location in Nob Hill, just east of the University of New Mexico. There are now a number of locations around Albuquerque and one in Bernalillo and one in Santa Fe. It is one of my families favorite places and now there is one within walking distance of our house. The food is excellent. They use locally grown produce. The prices may sometimes be a bit higher than some other similar restaurants and bakeries, but we have found the quality to be much higher too. We often get cakes from the Flying Star for special family events. We frequently go to our local Flying Star for breakfast, which is especially good, and we often take visitors to the Flying Star for breakfast. They are open until around 11 pm or midnight depending on the location. They have free wifi and free refills on coffee.
The owners support local public broadcasting and local dog and cat adoption groups. They are also pet friendly and you can bring your dogs to the outdoor "petio" when the weather is nice.
There are a number of coffee shops around town, called Satellite Coffee, that have the same owner and have a selection of the same pastries and menu items.
