Northstar Café is one of the best eateries I have been to! They use locally grown, organic foods, so if this is your thing, don’t miss it. They also have vegetarian options as well. The restaurant is set up a bit different – it is...More

Breakfast, lunch, or dinner, you can’t go wrong. Scones for breakfast, burger or fish sandwich for lunch, Buddha bowl or burrito for dinner. Ask for extra garlic with sweet potato fries. Just wish they opened at 8 a.m instead of 9 a.m.

Best place for vegan, vegetarian, and meat eaters. It is fast casual, you order at the register and food is delivered to your table. Love the Buddha Bowl with tofu, vege, brown rice, and peanut satay sauce.

Usually hottest salad. The dressing got a little heavy, so next time grey it on the side. Try a cookie which is too much for one person; well with effort you can handle it!

Northstar is an excellent choice if you prefer healthier foods prepared with clean and responsible ingredients. The wait time is never too terrible, the food is delicious, the atmosphere is great!

Northstar is great for vegetarians or vegans. Menu items are clearly marked with what can be made vegetarian/vegan. I've been there many times, and I don't think I've ever had a meal I didn't like. My favorite, though, is still the Northstar Burger, which is...More

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