A foodie's paradise

Northstar has all the best ingredients and puts them together in creative and delicious ways. It's a little on the pricy side and there are usually long lines for brunch, but it's totally worth it! Be sure to try one of their cookies ;-)

I have been going to Northstar for about 8 years now and every time I have the food is cooked perfectly. It is a fast-casual style restaurant, meaning you order at the counter, go sit, and they bring your food to your numbered table. Tip is included in the price.. so if you think it is pricey, just remember you... More

Seriously great food breakfast or dinner. Some times the line is out the door but we don't care, we stand in line anyway. One of the best in central Ohio.

All items we ordered were made from high quality ingredients with a focus on organic and fresh. Baked goods made on site were especially tasty. We live out of town so this is one of our frequent locations we visit while in Columbus. You can't go wrong.

Healthy delicious fun foods beverages cookies real ginger ale and great service. The only downside would be finding a seat at certain times of the day but it's worth it.!

I love the Thai chicken wrap so much that I hesitate to order other items off the menu. However, when I have ordered hot breakfast items, they have been plated artfully and they taste as good as they look. I go to Northstar as often as possible.

I can't believe I have yet to write about this place! I've been living in Columbus for almost 2 years, and I have come here so often; I never get tired of it! To start, the food is fresh and well-prepared. The Breakfast burrito and their pancakes are simply amazing! And the variety of coffees they offer for breakfast is... More

This place is always crowded, as it should be. You can get almost anything you want and it is delish. Great service? Although I wish they had more parking.

I have heard for years that I have to go to the Northstar Café in the Short North district of Columbus... probably because I am a vegetarian, and it is a famously vegetarian friendly place. At last, this past weekend, I was able to go to dinner at Northstar and it was really great! Note that we went on Gallery... More
