I'll be right up front and say that I'm a meat and potatoes, "just give me the damned bacon and eggs" kind of breakfast guy. Get in, get out, no one gets hurt. If you go to Morning Star that ain't gonna happen. If you go, pretty much any day in the summer between 7am and 2pm, you're in for... More

Good food and good service. Went for a late breakfast on Friday morning. No complaints other than wait to get in which was about 40 minutes. Food was very good but not sure I'd wait 40 minutes again for it else would be a 5

The Morning Star Cafe is an awesome local breakfast and lunch cafe. The omelet's and berry pancakes are outstanding! There is usually a wait, but it is well worth it!!!

We loved Morning Star Cafe so much, we went twice during our stay in Grand Haven. We are foodies and like to explore local restaurants and have good meals. This place took the prize for local area eateries. We loved every item we tried, service was top notch, and the prices were reasonable. We tried several menu items and all... More

Well if you are in Grand Haven and you want breakfast, this is the place you want to go. It's always atleast a 20 to 40 min wait so that explains how good their food is. I haven't tried anything with meat on it cuz I don't eat pork but everything I had there was absolutely delicious and I've been... More

One of the best, if not the best restaurants in the Tri-cities. With great service every time and wonderfully crafted delights Morning Star Café is our first choice for a bite to eat. However it is also everyone else's first choice. Arrive early and enjoy.

We originally stopped here for lunch/brunch on a Saturday - but didn't realize until waiting for over 20 minutes that they only serve lunch on Weekdays (they really should advertise this better). Since we were in a hurry and wanted LUNCH/not brunch, we found Lucy's instead (great sandwiches, quick eats, recommend it!) -- BUT we did stop back by Morningstar... More

Looking for a great place to eat breakfast in Grand Haven? Well if you're not already getting breakfast free from The Looking Glass Inn BnB, then you can check it out here! Morning star has awesome food and an even cooler environment. Their menu is a little bit limited when it comes to traditional menu items. You should definitely try... More
