Still good

We have been using the Phoenix Street Cafe as our breakfast "go to" location for the past 6 years. The eggs benedict has been a favorite from the get go. It is still good but the prices have gone up and the quantity of food had diminished. Especially over the last two years. Service remains good... read more

I live here in South Haven and Phoenix Street is my first choice for breakfast (oatmeal pancakes) or lunch (spinach burger) at least a couple of times a month. It's busy, but the staff keeps up - the food is good and it's a great place to meet friends or even have a meeting. The specials are creative and they... More

My daughter and I had breakfast at the Phoenix on the way out of town, and it left a good impression. We were seated right way and the server was knowledgeable about the menu. I had the B.E.L.T sandwich (BLT with egg) and it was delicious. My daughter enjoyed her omelette and we both liked the homefries. The food was... More

One of the only places open for breakfast in town and thankfully it's good. Because there aren't many places to choose from it's always packed. Service really depends on who you get.

This is a great restaurant. We come to South Haven every year and stay at least a week. We go to the Phoenix nearly everyday for breakfast. Superb food. Very friendly. Many waitresses have been there for years and are wonderful. Highly recommend. They serve what looks like great lunches and dinners too. Just haven't tried it.

We had brunch here on two occasions. Everyone ordered different items and, of course, we tasted each other's dishes. The Benedict with a crab cake and avocado was amazing and the corned beef hash was also a favorite. We really enjoyed our meal and will likely return.

We went to the Phoenix Street Café twice over the course of a weekend; once for lunch, and the second time for a Sunday breakfast. In both instances, the food was very good. On both instances, also, however, the service...while very friendly...was also slow. Our lunch was a later lunch on a Friday afternoon, with no wait for a table.... More

Service and food was average. Okay if you just want a salad or sandwich while shopping in South Haven.

Ordered this dish a couple of times now and always great!!! Did order a sandwich over Mother's Day and it was disappointing in presentation. There was absolutely no sides. Just 2 cut up pieces of a sandwich on a plate. Can't remember what it even was as it was so forgettable.
