Last night we went to Northstar Cafe in the Short North. It is one of my favorite places. They offer healthy, local, seasonal foods that satisfy everyone from the vegan to the meat lover. You can order wine, beer or a cocktail to go wtih your meal, as well fresh juice and homemade hot chocolate. IMG_6763.JPG



IMG_6767.JPGAAt Northstar you can sit and read one of the many magazines they have. A great addition to any restaurant – especially if you have to wait for your company for an hour 🙂 .

IMG_6768.JPGI browsed Fit Pregnancy and a few others before checking out Real Simple and the UK foodie magazine delicous.


Ordering at the counter is simple and quick.

Brady ordered the BBQ pork burrito. It was brown rice, avocado, lettuce, veggies, pork and BBQ sauce, served with tortilla chips and salsa.

Our company was adorable too, my cousin Emily and Bill.

It was a great dinner. I am already planning my next trip back. The problem is I want to branch out and try something new, but the Northstar burger is so good. I may attempt to recreate it – the key word being attempt.

Hope your weekend was great! We are in Cleveland now, after a busy weekend of parties, shopping, wrapping, cookie baking and packing.
