"I really appreciated the chance to have a brunch reservation. Too many places want you to stand in line for an hour! The booths for two were spacious and cozy. Service was friendly and just right."

"Blue Star Café has a large selection of eggs, omelets, and other goodies. On a week day morning, it was quiet and made a nice setting for food and conversion. The service was quick and friendly."

"Right when I walked in, I thought this place was going to be chaos. The host station was empty and was told by about 3 people that "they'd be with us in a minute". Meanwhile, more people were coming in and a crowd was forming in the entrance, losing track of who was in first. There was really no organization and staff seemed completely frazzled. Once we finally sat down, however, our waitress was patient and attentive and the food was great. I am hopeful the confusion up front is abnormal and will be better in the future."
