The actual restaurant ws very nice and modern. While i ate they played nice music in the backround. The service wqs great, the servers were very polite and didn't question what i wanted.In my opinion their cheeseburgers are the best!

In comparison to other cafes I felt it was average. Food was okay, nothing outstanding in my numerous times visited. Both locations are loud and crowded it seems, no matter what time of day. Just not a fast food restaurant.

I have eaten at North Star three times with at least one family member. Orange juice or apple juice was ordered each visit and always had a gnat in it. The drinks were quickly replaced by an employee but I am not inclined to return.

We try and venture to new places, but Northstar Cafe always brings us back with their yummy fresh food and friendly service! Don't forget to purchase a homemade drink and giant cookie to go along with your meal! The veggy burger, sweet potatoe fries and Buddha bowl are 2 of our favorites!

What's not to love about Northstar Cafe. A wonderful collection of well thought out, flavorful dishes, including my all time favorite the Northstar Burger, the best vegetarian hamburger I have ever had. While you are at it, don't miss out on the Peanut Butter Cookie.

When you first walk in you are a little confused as the way you order feels more like a throwback to Ponderosa steak house...but it all ends there...food is great and service is outstanding!

Great food and atmosphere. They weave in the farm to table concept in their dishes. Quality food, health conscious and well prepared. They also have some great adult beverages. Check out their margaritas...the best. Highly recommend. You won't be disappointed.

We've always enjoyed Northstar Cafe ever since they opened at Easton. We've eaten there (casual chic), inside or outside, and it's always very nice. We also carry out from there. Our favorite is the Northstar Burger, and Broccoli with Peanut Sauce. Very high quality food. I've had all their salads too and they are all delicious. Northstar Cafe is always... More

Great for breakfast, Brunch, lunch, and dinner. Veggie options, & strive for local produce & meats. Good price-point as well.

Thank Weldon C
