Great Menu - Great Place

This is a unique place because it's more "organic" in nature, with salad combinations that feature healthy foods, a bean hamburger as well as a regular hamburger, huge cookies, big portions, fast service, a breakfast menu with ricotta pancakes, as well as a frittata and a type of hash with an egg... read more

My husband and I are driving cross-country. We came upon an article saying Columbus Ohio is a breakfast mecca. We got off the highway and found our way to Northstar cafe for breakfast. We must have misread because we believed breakfast was served all day. When we went to order, we found that breakfast stopped being served at 11 am... More

First of all the queue could have been shorter but the wait for the breakfast burrito was more than worth it. The whole team were helpful and made an effort to make sure you felt welcome and got exactly what you wanted. If you're in Easton and want a brunch that is so so tasty this is well worth it... More

I've eaten breakfast, lunch and dinner here and everything is delicious. I've also eaten at both the Easton and Clintonville locations and they are identical in both their food and service. Everything is very high quality, and I particularly recommend their veggie burger, although their pancakes are great too. You also have a variety of coffees to choose from, which... More

Love love love Northstar Cafe at Easton. The staff are amazing, welcoming and eager to please. The food is delicious too. My friends and I eat there at least 1-2x a week and always sit at the bar. Nothing beats Northstar

Have eaten at several Northstar Café locations, including two very different venues: Upper middle-class Easton shopping center, & trendy Short North, on High Street. Healthy, plus fun & delicious food (great coffee, too, with free refills), combines with sneak peaks at your neighboring diners' outfits & accessories... Too crowded, with long, frustrating lines at weekend brunches, however.

Yum, yum, yum! We had lunch at the Easton Mall restaurant last week and I had a delicious meal and nice service. I loved the house-made ginger ale and had the Buddha Bowl, which was very tasty. My husband inhaled the yummy fish sandwich. I eat a gluten-free, dairy-free diet, and this is a restaurant that accommodates those choices really... More

1. Make sure you get a cookie. 2. The burger and fries is awesome. 3. The black cherry soda is excellent. 4. This Columbus original is a great spot for monthly dirty to dinner excellence.

The Veggie Burger is amazing at the Northstar Café and if you are in Columbus on Earth Day, it is served for free. YES, FREE but you need to get there early as the line stretches out the door and around the block. Five of us head there on Earth Day (And many other days as well) to enjoy the... More

Northstar Cafe is a great local chain, spreading out across Columbus due to its popularity (with locations in the Short North, Clintonville, and Easton). As a vegetarian, the Northstar Burger is a must. Food tends to be on the pricier side, but the value and quality is beyond exceptional. Often very busy on the weekends (good luck getting a seat...
