Great food..usually crowded, but the food is consistently some of the best for a lunch spot in the city

“Great for Breakfast & Lunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Northstar makes a mean breakfast and lunch! Its always clean and the service is always super friendly. For breakfast, I love the scones or burrito, for lunch the salads are awesome! They are really huge and easily big enough to split, making the $13 price tag a little more reasonable.

“Outstanding food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

Food quality at breakfast is extraordinary. They get extremely busy and the service suffers when they do. But, always a good choice.

“Northstar - Always get a dose when in Columbus”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Have been travelling to Columbus to visit my son since 2005. Staying in the Short North and walking by one great restaurant after the other makes travelling there always a good "dining" time. Northstar has earned my #1 ranking. Fresh squeezed OJ, veggie burger, ricotta pancakes, breakfast burrito, morning glory muffins, and the coffees ..... and the cookies....the list goes on. There has been no trip there without a trip to Northstar. This restaurant is a gem. Faces change on the the personnel over the years but staff extremely friendly and visibly happy to be working there. Consistently excellent in every way !!
