NY Day morning breakfast -

Great service and attitude, with a side of great and fresh breakfast foods. Cramped inside front door for table waiting but everyone who worked there was quite accommodating. Looking forward to a return meal.

We met high school friends at Phoenix Street Cafe; one of us had a BLT with extra bacon that looked wonderful; one of us had the special breakfast (french toast with chocolate cream cheese sauce, with eggs) that also looked more like dessert, and I had their homemade hash, which was also good. What was best? We met at 11:30,... More

This restaurant is fabulous! In the summer here, it is very busy everywhere in South Haven because it is a tourist town and right on Lake Michigan (the restaurant is within walking distance).

This is a nice little bistro style restaurant with some unique items on the menu. The food is good and they are in a very central location in town.

This has always been my go to spot in south haven, I've gotten the same thing every time (bagel & lox) that's how much I've loved it.
