Stopped here on a recent visit to South Haven. We wanted breakfast and were very pleasantly surprised by this place. The mini waffles were light and crisp, and the eggs were fresh and a generous serving. Good attention to refilling coffee and checking table. We will be back and try lunch next time. Very nice overall experience!

I've been going here for many years. I love the vegetarian sandwich. The toppings are a great combination. My fiancé loves the crab cakes, eggs Benedict and the steak hash (special).

Had a great beef brisket sandwich!! The breakfast choices look amazing too. The homemade slaw on my sandwich I could eat by the bowlful!! My husband had a jalapeno rueben which he loved!! The service was a little slow but I think this was more of a overcrowding problem then the actual server.

We ended up here after our first choice was quite a disaster. I'm so glad we chose the Phoenix Street Cafe! The menu choices were vast, the staff friendly, prices were terrific and the food was delicious! My husband and I will be back.

We had breakfast here on both days we were in South Haven. Very good food and reasonably priced. Waited about 10 minutes one day and no wait the second day. Very popular restaurant. Make this your breakfast place!

We stopped in for lunch as we were exploring South Haven. Service was a bit slow, but the place was busy and everyone seemed happy, enjoying their lunch. Our server was efficient and friendly. The food arrived promptly. My gyro was okay - I've have better, my wife's sandwich was also good. Everything was fresh and tasty. A nice place... More

The food was great, service was horrific. Our server was extremely slow and lazy. She did not refill beverages until asked (we even set beverages empty at the edge of the table which she ignored), never checked on anything, our orders were wrong -mixed up bread ordered ( not sure if that was her or the kitchen) and took 20...

Good food and great wait staff. The restaurant was very clean and we will certainly return. Don't let a line up keep you from waiting, seats seem to open quickly.

I like the "country favorite". I have chorizo scrambled into my eggs. A good value and friendly staff. I sit at the counter because it is usually busy. Judy is awesome!
