Adjacent to the Black Cow this is just as good for breakfast or lunch. The service is excellent and they have a solid menu.

We love coming here for lunch with family. Great food, good service. Our favorites are the Chopped Italian Salad, BBQ Chicken Pizza, Chinese Chicken Salad, and any of their great home made soups. Fairly decent wine list.

My kids love going to Star Cafe for the warm dinner rolls they serve you as appetizer. I've had some good pasta and fish dishes. The service is good, but there is a very nice older busboy who has worked there for many years, and he is super nice. There is a nice separate area on the second level, and... More

My friend and I went in this am for breakfast. The menu looked good and they had a lot of unique options. when we sat down we were given a warm muffin. Unfortunately it wasn't very good but that may have just been that flavor. We ordered 2 espresso drinks which they get from the coffee shop next door. I... More

We've been going to Star Cafe for years, with friends and family, enjoying their fish specials and BLTA pizza. Sawdust on the floor and great service.
