    We were there at closing and noticed they put the feet of the chairs on top of the tables. That's pretty disgusting considering what filth is on floors.

    Good atmosphere but over priced. Sweet potato fries are excellent.

    A man goes far to find out what a great pancake tastes like. I think I found it at Flying Star! Try the blue berry pancake!

    A side of parmesan cheese makes the mac and cheese go from a B to an A.

    If you're low on funds, try the $6 grilled cheese, comes with a side and you can't go wrong.

    Flying Star has tasty bakery, awesome almost NY-style bagels with cream cheese, comforting space and mac-and-cheese is through the roof good stuff. Nice meeting spot--business or friends.

    don't order the red chile, it might seem good in new jersey...

    They got rid of the biscuits and gravy.  The new creme brûlée beignets are pretty good though.

    You MUST have the bread pudding or the carrot cake, and you should probably share it with a friend (unless you can devour a ton of awesomeness!).

    Dylan Moriarty · July 14, 2011

    This place sucks. Over-priced food, terrible coffee and meh deserts. However, they make a good jelly donut. Their biscuits &gravy are the bomb too. Otherwise, pure suckage.
