Everything here is so great. My absolute favorite is the basil chicken burrito but it's all good. It's nice to eat out somewhere that you feel pretty good about afterwards too.

This cafe has great gluten free options for almost every item- there aren't any gf buns or bread but everything there tastes great! All allergies are taken very seriously, I am hyper-sensitive to the smallest amounts of gluten but always feel comfortable eating here!

Do yourself a favor and show up hungry. Order the Big Burrito and you won't be sorry. It was delicious. If it were humanly possible to have two... I would have. Ha. Can't wait to go back there for lunch too.

Was looking for a place for lunch and stumbled on Northstar which is located downtown. Had the Northstar Burger with the wild rice. The burger was perfectly done and the rice is actually a pilaf (cold) with nuts, dried blueberries (perhaps) or currents with a light, tasty "dressing" on it. The restaurant has a nice downtown vibe with a magazine... More

Everything I have had here has been good! The staff is super friendly and helpful! You order at a counter and they then deliver your food to you at your table. My favorites are the ricotta pancakes, buddha bowl, thai burrito, and chicken & avocado sandwich!

Kind of overrated in my opinion. Limited menu, limited seating, and expensive... Good food though for what it is... I could take it or leave it.

I picked this restaurant when staying in Columbus with another couple. When I mentioned the description, they jumped on the idea based on the word "organic." It turned out to be a fantastic choice. The restaurant had an interesting menu and an incredibly friendly staff. You order at the counter and they bring you the food. I had the sweet... More

I chose to eat there based on the very good reviews on this site. The entire staff was well trained in the importance of the customer experience. The décor was interesting with a section that has a full magazine rack as you would see in a book store that had a couch and chair in front of it. Other sections... More

If you like to eat a good tasting meal but care about the ingredients in the food, this is the place for you. My favorite is the Thai Basil Burrito, but the BBQ Chicken Flatbread, and the non-meat burger with the rice salad are very good too. Top your meal off with one of their Chocolate Truffle Cookies, hands down... More
