The patio was very beautiful and we sat out and visited for some time. The food was fresh, delicious and very prompt. We shared the Bird Burger and a salad. Very generous portions, best to split something!

We stopped in for a late night meal and this is a great little eatery and breakfast spot. The food offerings are varied with several healthy options.

The Flying Star Cafes are all over Albuquerque and there is one in Santa Fe. This one has a very nice outdoor seating area with big trees. There is a very cool bookstore next to it.

Tried the fish tacos on corn tortillas this time and the meal was perfect. Since dogs are allowed on the back patio, it's truly a family experience. Just don't go alone with your dog because you need to order inside, cafeteria style. Flying Star has never disappointed with the meals or hot chai. Great book store next door and other... More

This was the quickest dinner place we could fine close to Los Poblanos. The food itself is so-so. I would recommend going just for the desserts. We had lovely bars and cookies.

The food is good, but the prices for what you get are a bit steep. A salad shouldn't cost $14 when there isn't even meat on it.

One of the cool things is the outside patio, charming and shady BUT a lot of people bring their dogs which is great if you have a dog, but not so much if you don't.

Fancy food is served quickly at the Flying Star (several in Albuquerque). Go up to the counter, order, sit down and a few minutes later, great food is delivered. Still hungry - the bakery deserts are wonderful, too.
