I am a local and this is a favorite breakfast spot of mine! The prices are getting to be a little steep for a small town so we don't go very often, but the food is really good. They usually have some really tasty specials and they have a bar so if you want to enjoy a mimosa with breakfast,... More

I have only been here for breakfast and lunch, and both were great. For lunch, my favorite is the BLT because it is LOADED with bacon - and then a side of potato salad. For breakfast, I have no favorite because everything is good! Although I have not had any, it looks as if they have a good selection of... More

I was pleasantly surprised when I asked if they could do a lox omelet and they said "no problem"...and they didn't charge me a ridiculously large price for it. The staff was ALL greatly friendly and fun. The coffee wasn't all that great, however.

So glad to have stopped here. The food was fresh and had great flavor. I ordered the burger with avocado, my husband had a BLT we both had our fill of sweet potato fries. All good eats. We lived in South Haven a decade ago, but there was always a limited selection of good places to dine. The restaurant options... More

A friend and I stopped here for brunch on our way down to the beach, and we were absolutely pleased. I had the eggs benedict with avocado and a cinnamon roll pancake on the side. The eggs benedict was some of the best I've ever had! It was divine. And the cinnamon roll pancakes- WOW. The chef made me a... More

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

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.
