I visit NorthStar regularly! Food is always fresh, healthy and nicely prepared. Great number of non-meat and non-diary options. I especially like their vegetarian burger and flatbreads. Nice selection of seasonal wines and beers.

The breakfast items are good but not necessarily great. And they are a bit pricey. Pancakes and biscuits are very good. Unfortunately they don't open until 9:00, so too late for some. Breakfast is the only meal I have eaten here so I can't comment...More

We have been to Northstar several times and it is the best option for breakfast while staying/shopping at Easton. They don't open till 9, but it is worth the wait. The bacon and sausage are both great and make it hard to choose. The kids...More

We read and heard great things about Northstar, and they delivered! We went for breakfast in late morning. There was a bit of a line but it moved fast. I suggest you have someone stake a table while another waits in line as getting a...More

We met up with my daughter's college friend when we were in town and she suggested this restaurant. It was around 11 a.m. so brunch/lunch time. I had a biscuit with bacon, egg and cheese and it was fantastic! We had several cups of coffee...More

The food was good, but after all the rave reviews I had heard and the priceyness, I guess I expected more. It was very crowded. The service was lackluster. The coffee was good. Maybe we will try it another time...

Busy? Perhaps. A little pricey? Maybe (though you get large portions). But worth it? Absolutely. That "veggie burger" was the BEST I have ever had - EVER. The beets give it extraordinary flavor. And the "simple salad" is anything but... it was absolutely delicious with...More

I liked the atmosphere and the concept. It is like a Culvers in the sense that you order at the counter, take a number and then wait for your food. Just so overpriced for lunch. I'll be back for the food and once again leave...More

A nice concept with order ahead, have a seat and the food will quickly arrive. This is the kind of place one would return to if visiting the Easton Mall The pad Thai was delicious and well remembered. Hamburgers and salads are noteworthy as well

The last time I was there the pancakes were not gluten free and the restaurant did not make them.
Hi - do you serve coffee? Tea and cola are listed, but not coffee. The menu looks wonderful!
