“Solid Breakfast Choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2013

Of the few options in Grand Haven, you can't go wrong with Morning Star Cafe. It was busy, (a good sign!) but we were seated quickly. Our waitress was attentive and friendly. There is something for everyone on the menu, with plenty to choose from.

“Very accommodating”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 September 2013

Based upon the line waiting to be seated, I assumed this must be the place to eat. I was initially a little disappointed at the lack of breakfast options that did not include eggs in some form. However, the wait staff assured me that the kitchen would be happy to accommodate a vegan request. Shortly thereafter, a dish of mixed sautéed summer vegetables was delivered to my table. Our waiter was entertaining and cheerful. In sum, I was very pleased and will return if I am ever back in the Grand Haven area.

“Worth the drive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2013

When you wake up in the morning and your first thought is "Let's drive to Grand Haven for breakfast". the place you go better be good. Well. drive no further than Morning Star Cafe. If you wait at all, it won't be long and it starts with a choice of the kind of coffee you want, I recommend the house blend. The menu is extensive plus the values are good for the quality of the food and the amount you get. Each time I go, I try something different just to keep it interesting. The wait staff is also great and really knows the menu so they can answer your questions with ease.

So Morning Star isn't on the water, but I don't care about that. I love the food and the family friendly atmosphere. Everything about this place reminds me why I am happy to get up and drive to Grand Haven just for breakfast.

“ok best restaurant in Grand Haven for breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2013

great great breakfast. Always busy! Never have I had a bad meal here. Long lines, move fast. good service. When you see people waiting on the sidewalk outside all the time what do you think. Good value. Excellent and interesting menu choices. A Grand Haven MUST! Not by the water but take advantage of the lake later....

“Great place for families”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2013 via mobile

A cute little spot for breakfast. We got to the restaurant just in time. Only waited about 5 min. They are pretty good and making sure people don't have to wait to long. After we left the line of people waiting to get in was quite large. I would suggest getting there as early as you can. Food was great. Baked bread and goodies were the best. Good family place.
