We had lunch at the Phoenix Street Cafe. All of our food was excellent. The wait staff was pleasant and friendly.

This spot is definitely in the style of a diner, not fancy but functional and comfortable. Plus the food was great and decently priced. My Ruben sandwich was how I liked it. Definitely a family place with tables to accommodate larger groups.

My sisters came here for brunch and were amazed with the tasty food and variety. We loved the cinnamon stuffed French toast with Brie, eggs Benedict with crab and the California omelette. Delicious potatoes! Must do in South Haven!

I enjoy the food and service, the wait for a table can be frustrating and it's just so packed inside. I guess that's a good sign though, because people must like it! Clean facilities, nice decor and location.

We stopped here on our way back home because of the raving reviews. It was a bit crowded, which we expected. We put our name in because we were told it was going to be a 15 minute wait. We ended up walking around the town for 45 minutes until getting a text our table was ready. Already exhausted from... More

This is such a cute place. Our server was very outgoing and attentive. As for the food, my husband ordered the burger and was very pleased - said it was the best restaurant burger he's had in a long time. I had the grilled chicken chipotle wrap, which was just okay. The chicken was pretty rubbery. The fries, however, were... More

We stopped in for breakfast before leaving South Haven on our last day of vacation. Wish we could have came here more often for breakfast. The meat omelet was awesome. The taters were good and my wife loved her French toast. The staff was very attentive and service was fast. We will go back on our next visit to South... More

Stopped here for lunch on a road trip. Phoenix has a full menu, including breakfast at any time of the day and vegetarian options.

Our 3rd visit to Phoenix Street café and all have been on Sunday mornings. Our innkeeper claims it is the best breakfast in South Haven. They use locally grown organic ingredients when in season as South Haven is a farm market delight for anyone. The place is always packed, there is always a wait, and always very good. Nothing more...

We ate here for a lunchtime breakfast (around 12noon) - it has a nice vibe, good service and good food. The coffee is average - better than a lot of places. I had a basic eggs, bacon, toast & potatoes breakfast and my wife had pancakes. A good solid breakfast.

Thank R M
