Cool environment

Upscale place, you order first at the counter than they bring your food.

Pros: Great tasting veggie burger too!, Live Jazz in evenings, Good margaritas

Busy For a Reason

Heard about Northstar Cafe so we thought we’d check it out. When we arrived, there was a LONG line until we could even place our order (8ish minutes?) and then found a seat outside to wait. After 15 minutes of waiting, we asked a staff member how much longer, and five minutes later, they brought out our dishes with two free meal vouchers for next time. And we will be back!

Contrary to the service, the food was plentiful, flavorful, and delicious! My Buddha Bowl featured many veggies including mint and basil, broccoli, fried carrots (excellent crunch), and delicious peanut sauce. Was hoping for a bit more tofu, though. For the big bowl it was $14.50 with leftovers.

Overall, there are plenty of pros and cons, but if you have a chance, stop by! Although we suggest Monday-Wednesday to avoid the busyness.

Excellent veggie burger

This is one of those places where the menu doesn’t look all that exciting at first glance, but the food is really tasty. They have an excellent veggie burger, good sides, awesome salads. The Midwest can be hard on vegans so this place, which has several locations, is a really good option when eating with omnivores.

Great Veggie Burger!

I love the Northstar Burger, just make sure to specify you want it on vegan bread. Lots of other tasty vegan options clearly labeled on the menu, the Buddha bowl is tasty too!

My favorite vegan burger in Columbus

This is my favorite place to get a vegan burger in Columbus. It comes with an awesome side salad. The salad is a mix of kale and mixed greens with an Italian dressing and croutons. It's a lot of food!

Make sure to tell the cashier that you want it vegan, their standard bun is NOT vegan. However, they willsubstitute the bun for a different bread.

Best Vegan Burger

My favorite item on their menu, the Northstar Burger, is actually available at all of the Northstar locations in Columbus. I had the burger when I was just vegetarian and now since I've been vegan, and it's honestly so much better made vegan. The bread the burger is on is amazing and their salad is the best salad, probably ever. All veg items on the menu are well marked and everyone I've dealt with there has been extremely helpful veg wise!

Pros: Veg Burger

Cons: busy

So I have had veggie burgers before.. I always thought they were good. I didn't realize how not good all the others were until I ate the veggie burger there. oh. my. gosh. best burger I ever tasted! also their pad thai is great as well. Cute scenery, amazing food, I defiantly recommend.

Pros: Lots of Vegan/Vegetarian options

The Only Place I'll Eat Out

Personally I don't like going out to eat very often, however whenever I happen to be at Easton (or even on High Street) I love to go to Northstar. Its so easy to get a vegetarian OR Vegan food item, far easier than any other restaurant.

Pros: Lots of options, Organic Food

That was terrible. I love their veggie burgers, but the rest of their vegan adapted items are bland and textureless. Boiled rice and boiled vegetables drenched in peanut sauce... This is what they think of vegans in one insulting bowl.

Pros: Veggie Burger, Boylan's On Tap

Cons: Peanut Sauce On Everything, Expensive, Bland, Flavorless, Textureless Food, Cramped Seating Arrangements

Local Favorite

My family and I eat here all the time. The food is fresh, tasty and quick. The staff are generous and friendly. They really know how to take care of their customers. In a word, it's our go-to restaurant. I'd give them 5 cow rating, but the maximum is 4 for a non-veg restaurant. I highly recommend this place.

Pros: Great food, Reasonably priced, Good portions

Cons: Loud music, Can get really busy (line out the door)
