Savory Quinoa rocks!!!!

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.

I've been to Phoenix Street Cafe several times while visiting South Haven. While a little pricey, the food is good, but the management of this very busy spot (plus 3 other local hot spots) needs significant improvement. We arrived on a holiday weekend mid-morning expecting a wait for 5 people. After an hour wait, the hostess pointed to our empty... More

This place was packed on a Sunday morning early. We were pleasantly surprised to get a seat so quickly, within about 10 minutes. Breakfast was just average. She liked her pancakes and her scrambled eggs. I liked my toast and bacon. But we both hated the way overdone tiny taters that had no real taste to them. No hash browns... More

We had a wonderful lunch here! The salads are very big and kept me full for a nice long beach day. My boyfriend had the special buffalo pita, also very good. Good service too. We recommend this restaurant, breakfast looked good too!

The Artichoke Burger was amazing. Even for meat eaters, this vegetarian option was full of flavor and very satisfying!

My husband and I like trying vegetarian fare in new places. We ate the Tofu Scramble (it only needed some hot sauce and a touch of ketchup). Hot coffee was bottomless. This place serves breakfast all day, too. I love the setting in South Haven, just a walk away from the pier and lighthouse. Enjoy!

I can't get enough of this place. My daughter, granddaughter and I are here often. We even have our own waitress (I won't mention her name because I need her available when I get their). From the simple eggs and toast to the totally fulfilling lox platter, you just cant go wrong. The staff is the best and the atmosphere... More

Stopped here for lunch. Lots of variety on the menu, some unique options. I had the veggie sandwich, which was tasty. My wife had the crab sandwich, which I thought was just OK. Prices were reasonable, but I wouldn't call this an exceptionally great value. I would probably order off the breakfast menu next time, but overall it was a... More

My wife and I stopped in here for lunch on a Saturday. The place was decently busy but not crazy. I had their Reuben Sandwich with corned beef, my wife had the Turkey Cranberry Crunch, and we both had coleslaw on the side. The Reuben was quite good; the meat was very tender and it had good flavors. My wife... More
