Great selection​, awesome service. This place can get very, very busy, so get there early. Everything on the menu is great, scrambles are the bomb.

I visited Morningstar with someone who is a regular. The Huevos Rancheros (+Avocado) was so amazing, I had to slow myself to truly appreciate just how great it tasted, and how fresh the ingredients were. The tortillas and chorizo were fresh-made, and the spices in the chorizo were perfect. Grab it with the spicy corn salsa and enjoy! I will... More

Love how they have used their broken dishes for decorating the walls. We really like their breakfast's because they have a unique menu compared to other restaurants and the food is very good. You have to try the cinnamon rolls - a must!

One of the best breakfasts I have ever had. Twice. Great menu with pretty much every breakfast option possible. Fantastic cinnamon rolls and omelette so. Great crepes, biscuits and gravy, and more. Everything we have had here has been excellent.

Don't let the long lines scare you. There's typically seats available at the counter on a first come, first served basis. The food is always amazing and the staff knows how to handle the crowds. Consistently fast service. Us locals love it in the off season when crowds are smaller, but even during heavy tourist season it's worth the wait.

My wife and I stopped into the Morning Star Cafe in Grand Haven MI yesterday morning for breakfast. What a jewel. It has a very interesting decor inside and the food was tremendous. My wife had the eggs Benedict (Jeffery) and was extremely happy to find one the best in Michigan. I had the Four Corners omelette with home made... More

We've been here twice and have not been disappointed. GH is limited with places that are extra tasty. This is one of the best, especially for breakfast. The crowd tells the story. Get there early or expect to wait. Many choices, including a huge and tasty cinnamon roll. Coffee is fresh with a couple of varieties to choose from. You'll... More

Amazing healthy choices !!! Their menu is huge, so many on the omlette's, craves, egg practice are all fantastic. They have got some really exotic potato dishes to go along with your breakfast I'm off and seeing things I've never seen before on their menu. Do not forget to try their large cherry white chocolate chip cookies by the register!!!

A varied menu with fresh ingredients, no greasy breakfast here. Theres a lot to choose from dishes with a southwest flair or more traditional choices. Staff is friendly and seated our group of 15 in 20 minutes.

Fun dishes, delicious dishes and fast service. They turn and burn the tables fast and the staff is friendly. I had the four corners omlette. Highly recommended.
