We have been coming to South Haven over 10 years for a family trip and eat here every time! We even enjoyed seeing a singer of Red Hot Chili Peppers once in the early days. Did a photo bomb....good times. The food is authentic, fresh with local favorites. Usually busy, plan to wait on weekends. Right in downtown South Haven... More

I've had to make 3 separate visits to South Haven over the past few months on business. I love, love, love the food here. I eat lunch here everyday when I'm in South Haven. The food is delicious. I love their Savory Quinoa. There are many gluten free options and even more regular food options. Thank you Phoenix Street Cafe!... More

We've had breakfast, lunch and dinner here in the past few months and it never disappoints.. You can eat for less in some other South Haven restaurants, but not much less, and you'd lose in quality. It's out of season so lunchtime today was quiet, but our sandwiches were excellent, the coffee cup was kept full, and staff were attentive.... More

We had a great lunch at the Phoenix Street Cafe. We split a wrap and it was very good. The Sweet Potato Fries were very good!!!

This was a great way for us to end our Weekend with a great breakfast! The eggs benedict with avocado was great! Our larger group was able to be seated, we just beat the brunch rush. It was a good menu and it offered a lot of selection and gluten free options.

Thanks to all who left due to 15 minute wait time, my Family of 6 was able to be seated quicker. Quick service, awesome wait staff. Breakfast was one of the best we've had. Not GFS style. Oatmeal to die for. Mimosas were great.

This spot is definitely in the style of a diner, not fancy but functional and comfortable. Plus the food was great and decently priced. My Ruben sandwich was how I liked it. Definitely a family place with tables to accommodate larger groups.

My sisters came here for brunch and were amazed with the tasty food and variety. We loved the cinnamon stuffed French toast with Brie, eggs Benedict with crab and the California omelette. Delicious potatoes! Must do in South Haven!

I enjoy the food and service, the wait for a table can be frustrating and it's just so packed inside. I guess that's a good sign though, because people must like it! Clean facilities, nice decor and location.
