Staff are not aiming to please, they're aiming to get you in and out. It has that assembly line feel and I don't know if it's because they are busy or if they are like that anyway. You don't feel like you have a few minutes to let your food settle. The food is not worth the wait, the crowd,... More

Morning Star has a wonderful selection of unique twists on breakfast. My favorite is the Eggs Benedict. Relaxing atmosphere, very good service! Always busy in the mornings on the weekends so get there early!

This is hands down the best place to get breakfast or lunch in town. There is nothing on the menu that isn't delicious. Be prepared to wait in line however especially on the weekends.

Nice little place stuck away from the main tourist areas in Grand Haven. The breakfast was delicious! The staff did everything to make us feel comfortable and well cared for. And, for such a small place, the atmosphere and the decor were top notch! This will be our favorite place to stop for breakfast whenever we are in the Grand... More

So tasty! Best place for breakfast in GH and where I recommend everyone to go. Their oatmeal cakes and blue corn bread are to DIE for!

This is a super fun cafe. Comfortable unique atmosphere. Service was great and our breakfast was fantastic! They have a really broad menu with lots of options. The cinnamon bun was out of the world. They make their bread fresh daily. You can't go wrong visiting the Morning Star Cafe. I will definitely visit when I come back to Grand... More
