2010-03-21 12:41:22   Starry Nites Cafe is an excellent place for lunch or dinner. 7$ for a monstrous wrap and 7$ for a turkey BLT was perfect for a sunny afternoon. The service is so friendly, friendlier than any other cafe. They remember what you get and are interested in you as a person and take care of you as a customer. I highly suggest Starry Nites as a place to go on the weekends, they recently changed owners and WOW it made a huge difference. the last owner was interested only in money and now it is all about the people. I suggest their chai or cafe breve or special lattes. I want to go all the time to study and what not. —aurorasmith

2012-10-05 09:59:41   When I got to Starry Nites this morning at about 8:35, I ordered an egg-and-cheddar bagel. I was surprised that the barista took my order before that of the woman next to me, whom I thought had already been waited on. It got very busy right after I arrived, and my wife called me from out of town, so I moved away from the counter. After talking to her, I went back and saw that the bagel was still unwrapped. After another few minutes, I told him I couldn't be late for work, but he kept filling drink orders. Finally, I asked for my money back, and I still had to wait a few more minutes for him to get back to the register. So, I left hungry and with just enough time to get to work after waiting fifteen minutes. —KenMaher
