I enjoyed the atmosphere both inside and outside but ate outside. The Village Salad was delicious. I took an oatmeal cookie to go and that was a sweet treat later in the day. They have many healthy options for meat lovers and vegetarians alike.

Fantastic vegetarian restaurant with a wide variety of dishes and options. After our first visit even the "carnivores" were asking to go back for veggie burgers, Could be considered a bit pricey though

Northstar Café manages to deliver a consistently good product with consistently excellent service, time-after-time. Still love the veggie burger, sweet potato fries, salads, and, of course, the jumbo cookies. You just can't go wrong here!
