Healthy, hearty, and scrumptious! Whether for brunch or lunch I am a huge fan of Northstar. Sweet potato hash for brunch is amazing, just about any lunch option a delight. One of my favorites is the Buddha Bowl. This would be my choice for lunch almost anytime - though the menu is small, I love all of the options so... More

I live in Columbus and I love Northstar. From the amazing black bean burger to the sweet potato hash to the Buddha bowl, there's always some thing fresh and delicious to try. I am a big fan of brunch, as they have specials that are inventive and tasty. Though, that does mean that some of the best items on the... More

Brunch is my favorite meal at Northstar. Great selection of brunch/lunch items on the menu that would please anyone. Great for lunch or dinner as well. Friendly staff adds to the success of this very popular restaurant. I have eaten here often, and have never been disappointed.

I've had most of the food on the menu, and despite being around for years, the line is still to the door every time I visit. Try it -- I promise you won't be disappointed.

I eat here often and LOVE the avocado and chicken sandwich, was sad to see it missing from the menu recently, I was told it's seasonal :( Veggie burger is one of the best I've had. Sweet potato fries, salads, and the homemade ginger ale are all excellent! $20 for a turkey sandwich and a drink is steep so that's... More

Went here a few times for breakfast/ brunch it's good food and prices are reasonable. Fresh squeezed juice is great. It just different but not bad. I would go back for lunch or breakfast.

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!
