“A hidden gem”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

Although often a wait, there is a reason for this. The Morning Star Cafe is consistently good and I don't think you could go wrong with any choice on the menu although I am partial to the huevos rancheros with the black bean puree and avocado. The decor is very unique and gives off a funky type of vibe and the waitstaff is fantastic! I have not tried their lunch or desserts but I will definitely go back to do that.

“5 Stars for Morning Star”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Morning Star is a terrific restaurant. It has a great breakfast and lunch menu. I have eaten there many times and have never had a bad meal. The food is creative and delicious. The atmosphere is funky and casual. It is a popular place and there is often a wait but it is well worth it.

“Restless Native”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

On weekends,be ready to wait ! I'm not much for "line standing" but the people waiting are usually in no hurry so nobody is real put out by it (makes it a little more tolerable) It is worth the wait if you want something just a bit different than "Bacon and eggs". They offer a bit more than a "Standard breakfast menu" The portions are good size,prices are fair... the food has always been good. DianeF57 says its the best restaurant in town......We got some really good restaurants in Grand Haven..and Morning Star is one of them !...I always mention this place to family and tourists,and I have never had anyone tell me they didn't like it! Its a Grand Haven place that every body knows.I have only eaten breakfast there, but I hear good things about all the food.

“Consistently good”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

This is one of the "go to" spots for breakfast in town, if not "the go to spot". No one needs to twist my arm to go here. Yummy. Veggie frittata with black bean puree is a favorite. My kids love the huge cinnamon rolls (big enough to share). If you are looking for a greasy spoon type of place, then you might want to go further down the road. If not, this is your place. Be prepared to wait. There is a great local bookstore next door where you can buy a newspaper or book to make the time go by.

Eclectic restaurant with very good food. Omelets, eggs any way and interesting sandwiches for lunch. A must place to go in Grand Haven.
