Delicious Local Organic Meals

Don't be fooled by the cafeteria style ordering: the food here is worth the effort of standing in line and taking a number to your table. Try the burrito - with tofu or chicken. Delicious! Fresh salads, yummy burgers and a great weekend brunch. You can't go wrong here.

Really good food...beautiful patio. Get there early for Breakfast or Lunch to avoid long lines. This is a restaurant where you stand in line, order and then find a table and they bring the food to you.

This is a nice upscale farm to table venue. Menu choices generally good, eat as healthy as you want. Kind of a fast casual, but a step up from Panera's.

I am part German and my father is from Augsburg Germany and let me tell you, there food not only will fill you up, and you fall in love with it, but will make you want to go to Germany to learn their culture, foods, and the people are so happy and go lucky. IIt is on my bucket list... More

Visited with some friends for beakfast. Menu is very limited which is fine for breakfast. I ordered the cowboy breakfast which is eggs, biscuit, sausage. Food was fine. Location is great

Have eaten in North Star cafe 4 or 5 times and have always enjoyed the sandwiches- Be ready to order on line as you go and to share your table with strangers...otherwise the food (salad or sandwiches) are pretty good-

First time in. Brunch was great! Loved the wrap. Entrance and dining area was very crowded. I know it's not the restaurant's fault, but the patrons were very rude and snobby.

I ordered the Chopped Salad, which had an interesting combination of tasty ingredients. I took home half to save room for some ice cream down the street. I thought the salad was pricey but, at least, was a decent size. I like that there are gluten-free & vegan options & that the emphasis is on fresh locally-farmed ingredients. There are... More
