“Great for Breakfast & Lunch!”
Reviewed October 30, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Northstar makes a mean breakfast and lunch! Its always clean and the service is always super friendly. For breakfast, I love the scones or burrito, for lunch the salads are awesome! They are really huge and easily big enough to split, making the $13 price tag a little more reasonable.

“Outstanding food!”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

Food quality at breakfast is extraordinary. They get extremely busy and the service suffers when they do. But, always a good choice.

“Northstar - Always get a dose when in Columbus”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

Have been travelling to Columbus to visit my son since 2005. Staying in the Short North and walking by one great restaurant after the other makes travelling there always a good "dining" time. Northstar has earned my #1 ranking. Fresh squeezed OJ, veggie burger, ricotta pancakes, breakfast burrito, morning glory muffins, and the coffees ..... and the cookies....the list goes on. There has been no trip there without a trip to Northstar. This restaurant is a gem. Faces change on the the personnel over the years but staff extremely friendly and visibly happy to be working there. Consistently excellent in every way !!

“Fresh ingredients, delicious food and exceptional employees.”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

Open, airy environment. Great selection of coffees, vegan dishes and sweet treats. This is a great place for brunch and leisurely lunches. It is not for a fancy dinner place to impress a date. But is great if you want really good, fresh ingredients, good coffee, and a pleasant environment. The employees cannot do enough to serve you. They provide a to-go cup for you to fill with coffee as you leave, for no extra charge. And, oh, by the way, you should really try the Cloud 9 Pancakes - they are heavenly!
