I was really impressed with the homemade ginger ale, which also contained lime juice and mint. It was like a ginger mojito, minus the alcohol - very refreshing. I thought it was neat that the menu specifically stated which items could be made meat-free and dairy-free.

After reading all of the other reviews, I wish that I had gone with the beet burger for my entree. Instead I got the tomato cheese flatbread minus the cheese (with balsamic-glazed onions instead). The balsamic-glazed onions were great, but I was a little annoyed that they still charge extra for them even when you leave off the cheese. I ended up paying $9.50 for a thin pizza crust topped with tomatoes and a few glazed onions, while if I had ordered the dish as it was listed on the menu, it would have been covered in two types of cheese and cost $2.00 less.

That said, aside from my pricing complaints, I had a very enjoyable meal at Northstar Cafe. I would give them a rating of "great" if they were willing to make substitutions for vegan meals (rather than just leaving out ingredients).

The food here is pretty good, but it is mostly nice to have the option of going out and eating organic food. Their wine selection is small although they have some good choices.

I usually get a salad and con someone into spliting or giving me a portion of their beet burger.

I just tried some of their tofu BBQ burrito, it was really good.

Northstar has a few vegan options that are pretty tasty. (They use honey, so be sure to ask if you haven't been there before). I'd give them a higher score if they had more vegan options & their food wasn't so expensive.

I was very impressed with this place; not so much because of the food (which was good), but with the fact that they use organic and local ingredients and that they have little table placards that promote Community Supported Agriculture.

I had a vegan blueberry smoothie, which was very good, and a Northstar burger, which was even better. The bread it came on was a bit thick but the burger itself (which I hear contains rice and beats), was surprisingly flavorful. I also sampled my friend's Buddha Bowl, which was good, but not terribly impressive.
