I have gone to Morning Star many times over the last 3 years on my visits to Grand Haven. Easily the most unique breakfast menu I have ever seen. I try to experience a different meal every time I come in and I am never disappointed. Their meals are truly one of a kind. It seems, with many breakfast restaurants,... More

They have the best pancakes and make sure you ask for real maple syrup. The order is big enough to share. You can't get a pancake with more flavor!

Waited less than 10 minutes for a table at 1:15 on a weekday. Fantastic service from waitstaff. Sensational flavors and ample portions for both Albuquerque Turkey Fritatta and Turkey burger with spinach and cranberry sauce. A bit pricier than we would normally pay but steal of a deal with the 2 for 1 coupon we had. If not on a... More

We had an omelet and the stuffed french toast...amazing! The meat from the omelet was clearly of a high quality...even the OJ was great! Service was wonderful, a bit of a wait...but worth it!

This place is a little claustrophobic as it always seems to be busy and there is a wait with little space for waiting customers who must jockey around paying and departing customers. Aside from the traffic flow problem in the front of the business, I can say nothing bad about it. We waited about 25 minutes at 11:30 am on... More

The food is awesome as everyone has said. You will basically always be waiting which is a bit unfortunate. They are also not set up very well for groups of more than four. Staff can also be a bit unwelcoming.

Disclaimer: I really do not like Southwest Cuisine at all. Seriously, stop putting corn where it doesn't belong. And yet... My wife and I have eaten here dozens of times, and the food never fails to satisfy. Southwest cuisine with FiestaWare everywhere, even decorating the walls, this very popular local cafe delivers interesting menu items, executed very well, with an... More

Morning Star is a very good place. Locals and tourists are both huge fans! The downside is it is always crowded, and it is priced a little on the high side. Kids menu is a bit of a rip off. My child ordered pancakes, and got one tiny pancake, 1 piece of bacon and no drink...over 5 bucks. Many different... More

This quaint little cafe has been a weekend tradition for many years. The food is in a class all of its own and the service is amazing.

What a Grand start to our Sunday morning. Too bad we were on our way out of Grand Haven when we found this little eclectic gem. It had great appeal from the start with a nice group of servers varying from all walks of life and the pictures/artwork on the walls was colorful and appealing. My favorite was the border... More
