Fodor's Review

Flying Star is a staple here, and each outpost of this locally owned order-at-the-counter-first café suits its neighborhood. At the original spot in Nob Hill, the university crowd crunches into a snug space to dig into a mix of creative American and New Mexican dishes (plus several types of wine and beer). Options include rosemary chicken with couscous risotto, a tossed Cobb salad with tangy tomatillo dressing, grilled turkey-and–Jack cheese on sourdough, and an egg- and chile-packed "graburrito." Desserts change often, but count on a tempting array—perhaps a bite-size salted caramel blondie will suit, but that tall slice of coconut cream pie might beckon, too.
