Wow this was my first time going here and I will definitely be back. I had the sweet potato hash, my mom had the blueberry smoothie, blueberry buckle and the house-made granola with fruit and yogurt. It was all so good!

When you want good breakfast food you want it done right. Northstar Cafe did not disappoint!! No diner prices here but high quality ingredients and the cooks/chefs know what they are doing. The biscuits are amazing and I recommend the Northstar Hot Chocolate.

Visited with the family for dinner. I always love the Bhuda Bowl. My mom loves the Margarita pizza. The Neiman Ranch burger is also fantastic.
