This is a great place to go if you are looking for breakfast or lunch with a little twist. This place offers a unique twist with a southwest flare on many of its dishes. Price is moderate and well worth it. Lemon pancakes with raspberry butter are fantastic as is their spin on the breakfast classic eggs benedict. They also... More

Staff are not aiming to please, they're aiming to get you in and out. It has that assembly line feel and I don't know if it's because they are busy or if they are like that anyway. You don't feel like you have a few minutes to let your food settle. The food is not worth the wait, the crowd,... More

Morning Star has a wonderful selection of unique twists on breakfast. My favorite is the Eggs Benedict. Relaxing atmosphere, very good service! Always busy in the mornings on the weekends so get there early!

This is hands down the best place to get breakfast or lunch in town. There is nothing on the menu that isn't delicious. Be prepared to wait in line however especially on the weekends.
