Flying Star is a local favorite and has something for almost everyone in your troop. Specializing in what we used to call "California Style" cuisine, you can order at the counter and they bring your food (or pasty & coffee) out to your table when it's ready. The food choices are strong on healthy, natural, chicken - fish - beef - or vegetarian options and range from the Buddha Bowl (Rice & steamed veggies with luscious deep fried tofu) to a Nosh plate (Mediterranean) to a fresh fish dish with pearly cous-cous, to a giant stacked hamburger. And much more. Salads are FANTASTIC. Flying Star is also very popular for breakfast, with options from oatmeal to a breakfast burrito to piles of potatoes with green chili, eggs & cheese. Lastly, and first really, this place started out in the 1970's with an emphasis on pasty & coffee, so they still have the very best cakes & pies in town. With multiple locations all around the Q, and Petio's at nearly every one (a "petio" is a place you can bring your dog with you to dine - and the only store that doesn't have one is the Nob Hill location) ... Flying Star is a CAN'T LOSE location for fresh food and a happy family. The menu is wide enough for almost every pallet, and the food comes fast - so kids won't get bored or hungry waiting. A versatile every-day kinda place in this most unusual of American cities.
