Awesome as ever

Went there again this year and it was as outstanding as last year! First the wait isn't that long but, well worth it! You can't go wrong here. We loved it!

Had to try the #1 restaurant in Grand Haven. The 6 of us were not disappointed. A healthy choice too. Maybe 1/2 hour wait and a 7 block walk from the marina district. Interesting menu with plenty of the traditional fare and the unusual but tempting. Good stuff!

Took a long time to get in early afternoon mid week. Took a while to get our food as well. Staff was friendly. Food was very good.

When a restaurant is this popular expect to wait in line that is the only negative about Morning Star Cafe. The juice is fresh, the coffee just right, and the food is absolutely amazing. You would expect to pay top dollar for this wonderful food experience but yoh won't. The price for our family of three was just over $30.... More

Nothing wrong with this joint other than the wait, which is earned by every place worth waiting for....as long as you go in knowing there will be a wait, you will not be disappointed. The food is inspired and the service is proficient.

My wife and I did a late lunch at Morning Star today. It was very very good! My wife had the Heartland Vegie Omelette, and I had the 2 Taco plate (pork) ... both were excellent! The omelette was big enough that my wife took 1/3 of it home. The tacos were served open face and the accompanying salsa, rice,... More

You will wait here---but it is 100% worth the wait. We actually had breakfast and went back the next day it was so good. I had a special of the day---Banana crepes which were unbelievably good. But my husband ordered a 'basic' breakfast---eggs, toast and potatoes and that was delicious too. Lots to choose from on the menu, great wait... More

On a visit back to West Michigan I had to make sure my family and I stopped by for breakfast. I had a veggie inlet that was fresh and yummy. Even had it made with 2 eggs instead of three so no food was wasted. I always enjoying going to Morning Star, their friendly service, excellent food, rotation of flavored... More

We visited twice while on vacation. I wish we had time to visit for lunch and try a dessert, but only made it for breakfast. Each visit we waited about 20 minutes and it's well worth it. Very small restaurant, but the service is friendly and knowledgeable. The food is outstanding. The slightly Mexican take on breakfast foods was outstanding... More
