Friendly people, nice service, great place to watch some nice small planes take off and land. Catch up on aviation news and learn about private planes, there is almost always a pilot with a good story.

If you want a hearty, farmer-style breakfast, this is the place for you. Tiny and cozy, the menu is loaded with hearty options, always with eggs and hash browns. The skillets and combination breakfasts could easily feed two adults and everything was tasty. I am not a huge breakfast person, so I ordered my favorite--a bacon waffle which means bacon... More

Flew into the Independence airport for breakfast. The cafe is right in the airport next door to the fuel pumps. Very convenient! Food is typical breakfast fair, with about three dozen egg, pancake, waffle, biscuit options. Food is OK, not the best I've ever had but good and you'll not leave hungry. Staff is not super friendly to strangers, but... More

Went out to the Starduster Cafe with the wife and had a wonderful lunch. They have a large selection so you can have quite a choice. We enjoy the place and the folks that run it are great, also you get to watch the planes come and go. It's a great place with good food.

We stopped to meet family here. Had veggie omelette and French toast. Huge amount of food and very good. A little bit out of the main town but worth it.

We eat here often and have never had a bad meal or experience. Great food, reasonable prices and good service. It can get busy at times but service is still pretty fast. It is right on a small but fairly busy private plane airport so there is usually lots to watch out the windows watching the planes land and take... More

Members of our extended family had gone to the Starduster Cafe recently for breakfast and shared that it was wonderful. We finally made the trek over, about a 20 minute drive, and wow - very impressed. It was Sunday morning and we expected the restaurant to be busy, which it was. We didn't have to wait too long tho and... More

Dropped in for breakfast. Small establishment. Very extensive and thorough menu. Service was very casual but efficient. Food arrived hot, exactly as ordered and was very good. Portions were ample. Prices were below average. Tables and chairs were not especially comfortable. Outside seating was an option, and one that should be considered for the best views of the airport activity,... More

The Starduster is very popular with the locals. It is small and cozy with an old fashioned comfort food menu. In good weather, many guests prefer eating outside. Open for breakfast and lunch only, this is the place to go if you like to watch airplanes. Please keep a close eye on your kids because airplane propellers are dangerous and... More
