We went here for breakfast. What a novel idea, you place your order, get your own drinks, then they seat you and very shortly they bring the food. And, it fabulous. It is a bit pricey and the portions are not huge, but what you get is delicious. You feel good about yourself when you leave for eating healthy and... More

$18 for a veggie burger is ridiculous. If I'd have been on my own or just with the wife I wouldn't have gone in, but we went there with people so felt obliged to eat. Service was average, food was ok and portions were very small, I just couldn't get over what gullible people will pay for average food if... More

Fresh ingredients. Interesting selections. Pleasant atmosphere. All this plus the best homemade ginger ale you'll ever taste!

I've never been disappointed by Northstar... from any of the locations. Many good healthy options (and many good vegetarian choices) - really good prices as well.

I had a chicken wrap when here and it is the best chicken I have ever eaten in a restaurant. It was moist and flavorful. The oatmeal cookie was also wonderful. This is a great place to stop and spend some time. All the food is great. Thank you!

The fresh, made-to-order food arrives quickly in large, tasty quantities but you will pay a higher price than your standard lunch venues offer.

They have a wide variety of options for food on the menu. It's hard to characterize it as a single cuisine. I had the pad thai and it was great. Very tasty and spicy. They have a reasonable selection of beers and other beverages. All of the food is fresh and well prepared. The inside seating is quite open and... More

My wife and I were visiting our granddaughter and her boyfriend at OSU. They suggested that we go to dinner and sit on the outside patio at Northstar Cafe. It was a beautiful evening and we were lucky to find a table outside. A young man by the name of Garrett helped explain the menu to us and made a... More
