Breakfast is served all day - also a wide variety of other food - salads, burgers, meals & sandwiches. I ordered the veggie frittata. It was crisp and tasty and served with a small salad of dark greens.

I had a lovely breakfast with my husband while in Albuquerque Central Avenue. Stroll down Central Avenue and stop by this nice cafe. Try out the cookies and the yummy Mexican wedding little cookies with espresso coffee. A great way to start up your day!

We created Flying Star because we needed fresh, tasty coffee served in a bottomless cup, comfy seats with casual, competent service that didn’t get in your face. Most of all, we wanted a place where dessert was first and the food was something you could really get your taste buds around. And, we needed it served from early in the morning to late at night on every day of the year except Thanksgiving and Christmas. It would be a place where we could go to be alone or have a good chance of running into friends. That was 1987 and we’re still cooking and baking 24 years later.
