A Must do in grand haven

We had a large party of 9 with kids on a Wednesday morning and didn't have to wait too long. Have kids coloring books and canyons at the table. Even had some baby toys for the little guy. Good was awesome! Tons of unique items. My husband had a corn bread scramble that was awesome! Love!

I've been in the Grand Haven area for two days now and every meal was a bust.... with the exception of this place. The breakfast not only tastes great but it is high quality as well; this you can tell right away. The southwest atmosphere is awesome, the service is top notch and the coffee is good as well; they...

Morning star is by far the best restaurant in Grand Haven. I have never had anything here that I didn't like.

I have been to the Morning Star Cafe at least 6 times in the past two years. I usually order one of the specials, which change frequently, and they never fail to please! The food is fresh, sometimes unusual, with a variety of flavors and spices blended perfectly. The wait staff is friendly, upbeat, like they're glad you're there. They... More

Exceptional Food, unique decor, friendly staff, and a MUST go for tourists and locals! The location makes it easy to find, and several options for parking, unlike the immediate downtown area.

A favorite of locals and tourists. Downside is there is often a wait. Don't let it discourage you. The food is worth it. My usual is the Tree Hugger, a mix of fresh veggies and taters with an egg on top. I think the egg is optional. Their Cinnamon Rolls are heavenly and if you try the chocolate cake you... More

I was looking forward to Morning Star based on the reviews. I can't give them yet another five star rating because I think they need some constructive criticism to maintain their excellence. I arrived at a moderately busy time, about 1:45 PM on a weekday. I like the look of the diner, cheery with a happy decor, good solid comfortable... More

Crazy good menu. If you like your eggs with a kick get anything off the breakfast menu with chiles in it. And don't forget the pineapple salsa - sweet and spicy. I would drive the three hours for another omelette.
