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.

This bustling place was within walking distance of my Air BnB apartment and I enjoyed it a lot. The caramelized onion soup and salad were quite tasty and presented in beautiful fashion. For a place where you go to the counter to place your order,...More

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.

Hip, fun place with great food!! I need to avoid gluten and dairy and not a problem here! But you can also get biscuits and gravy! So something for everyone!!

I went here with friends on a Sunday morning and it was quite busy. We ordered at the counter and we were seated quickly. Our food then came quickly after. I recommend the lemon ricotta pancakes and the scrambled eggs with Gouda.

Enjoyed the citrus salad. So good! Mango's, chicken seasoned well, cilantro, even mint. Highly recommend. Four in our family and all enjoyed.

Northstar gets it--fresh food, healthy choices, lively atmosphere! It's not like they have one or two things that fall into the vegetarian or vegan category, they have bunches and they are all delicious!! Love, love their salads!!

Like this place a lot. We probably go a couple of times each time we visit Columbus. Only problem is that I don’t think the menu has changed in 5 years. But, maybe that’s not a problem as the only thing you ever need to...More

We stopped in for soup & sandwich and was not disappointed. Of course following with one of the best cookies I have ever had certainly helped. Beware this cookie is huge and addicting

They have a great selection of coffees along with a couple decaf ones as well. All with free refills and kept fresh. Great place.
