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!

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

We came across this restaurant when at Easton Mall looking for lunch. I am thrilled we chose Northstar Cafe!! Don't miss the homemade fresh ginger ale. I ordered the chicken/avocado sandwich and it didn't disappoint. The menu stated it came with wild rice (well, ok), but it was a fabulous and interesting wild rice salad. I am in the car... More

I am not a vegetarian, but the Northstar burger was really good. It comes with a small salad and I loved the dressing too. I think it's just a bit pricy, but delicous. A friend recommended this place and I had to check it out and was happy that I did. Parking of course is still a problem like everywhere... More

This restaurant is always very good and consistent. If you like to eat healthy and/or vegetarian or vegan; this is the place. They remodeled their outside seating and it is by far the best in Columbus.

I visited Northstar when I was in Columbus to visit a pal that was in an internship there. She said "We are going to get the most amazing breakfast ever" No lie. It was amazing. Their biscuits are awesome. The jam from nearby Michigan was legendary. My eggs were perfection. And the roasted potatoes! Great value and I loved that... More
