I feel bad about this review even before I write it. I always try to be truthful but in the end it just my opinion. I went here with high expectations based on other reviews. It was not what I found. We had the quiche, it was shown on the menu with fruit but we were served with a strange... More

We were visiting friends in Grand Haven and they introduced us to this place, well we liked it so much we kept coming back while we were there for brunch. I really recommend the dish with the smoked Salmon and Hollandaise sauce. We got good service here, we did try and come after the morning rush as it can get... More

We LOVED the Morning Star and went back several days in a row. The smoked salmon eggs Benedict were delicious and so were the cinnamon buns. I was disappointed by the type of tea they use as I prefer whole leaf tea and I found the tea they use weak and unremarkable. Service range from good to excellent. Amazing value... More

Like most places with good breakfast there is always a wait here, we went Saturday, Sunday and Monday mornings. The staff are always happy and knowledgeable of the menu. We had several different choices in coffee including flavored coffees like toffee and a dark star roast. The food was excellent and didn't take as long as you would think it... More

We have been here a couple of times now. Both times we had great service and excellent food! Wonderful choices no matter what you are in the mood for. I had the huevos rancheros with a mild homemade salsa. Tends to be very busy in the summer months, usually a short wait. We browsed the book store that is right... More

So worth the 20 minute wait (on a Tuesday)!! My husband loved the huevos rancheros. My cornbread scramble was great. My daughter got eggs benedict which I thought was the best dish of all. The cinnamon roll was to die for (a bit pricey tho for size) and the Columbian coffee was soo yummy. You gotta go!

Looking for the once-familiar skillet style breakfast? Not here anymore. But, if you want a breakfast with unique ingredients and a California flair, this is it. We went for the traditional breakfast and were less-than-enthused.

We chose the Morning Star Cafe for breakfast based on it's TripAdvisor rating and we were not disappointed. Both the food and service were excellent. Our server was very pleasant and knowledgeable. The menu is quite extensive, plus we had our choice of 3 different coffees. We would definitely go there again.

We enjoyed our first breakfast experience at the Morning Star Café -- we will definitely be back to try lunch. Our food was very tasty and the service was excellent. It was a nice surprise to be offered a specialty coffee choice (Hawaiian Delight. Arriving early allowed us to beat the morning rush.
