Decent Option- Good Coffee

Posted on 05 / 20 / 2015

All the Flying Star locations are pretty consistent, in my experience. There are a couple of vegan options (not a ton), but the staff is always knowledgeable about what vegan means and what options we have, so that helps a lot. They are VERY open to making swaps and substitutions, that's nice. I'm fond of their giant breakfast burritos, making a few modifications to "veganize" it. They have good coffee too, with almond and soy milk options.

They do have a vegan chocolate cake, but I wasn't very impressed. A giant dessert bar, and just ONE vegan option? And the cake was okay, but not any more than okay.

Finally, Flying Star is expensive for what it is, but they try to source locally and I think that has an impact.

Pros: Flexible with dietary preferences, Good coffee
Cons: Expensive, Need to step up their dessert game

This place is great, the menu is changed fairly often so you shouldn't get bored with the menu. I always feel guilty for eating their baked goods but they are wonderful, all the same. There are a few vegan choices with advisement on the menu that more will be offered in the future. Food is fresh and good. A bit pricey, but good food typically is.

I love going to Flying Star and eating a vegetarian breakfast burrito with tofu on the weekends and sitting by the fireplace. Great place to eat at! Try the Mexican Latte with Soy.

Pros: Healthy, Good Value, Friendly
