Even on a Tuesday you wait, but it's worth it. Charming staff, busy kitchen, and if you have patience you will find it well worth it. Austin was our server, one of us ordered a Benedict and was great, especially the hollandaise. Another had a Denver omelet and was well pleased. A third had the blue corn scramble with Verde...

Great local place with great food and service Fresh and hearty meals! Coffee is always fresh and what you don't finish in the carafe at the table you get to take with you My wife loves the pancakes.

I love breakfast! Cinnamon roll-wow! Loved the biscuits and gravy too. All worth the splurge. Cost normal. Service was good-server was training new employee as well. Wait was about 30 minutes at 9:00 AM on a Tuesday,but I'd wait again! Atmosphere was fun and food was delicious. Breakfast at its best 😀

Time pass and Morning Star Cafe still best option in Grand Haven. Nice people, good food - even with the limited options for Saturday lunch and the best decoration in town! I will be back - as always!

I had an omelet featuring smoked salmon, capers, etc. It was very good and the portion size was refreshingly satisfying without leaving one feeling like a bloated whale. Good toast and potatoes, instead of oily mess usual to breakfast houses. Smooth decaf. Friendly staff

What a cute, quaint Cafe. The menu is to die for. Love the decor! The food is awesome, many different kinds of breakfast items. Lunch looked good too! Everything is made right there. Great wait staff. The owner is fantastic! We did have a wait, but it was well worth it!
