Went with some friends for breakfast. Great food. Lots of different choices and very tasty. It was not crowded when we went and we were seated quickly. Will definitely make this a stop again when in South Haven.

We ate here 3 times. Twice for breakfast and once for lunch. Everything was delicious! The service was also very good. We had the French toast and the half sandwich and salad. They are only open for breakfast and lunch.

We have come to Phoenix Street Cafe before for breakfast but recently came for lunch and were pleasantly surprised. Although the lunch menu is not very extensive (consists of mainly sandwiches) the food was all very good and definitely worth the stop.

South Haven does not offer a lot as far as breakfast places but Phoenix Cafe is a winner. Servings are big and service was great. A little pricey as breakfast goes but worth it.

The food here is your typical breakfast place fare, but it is great tasting and well served. Typical wait times, greater on weekends. Worth the wait though.

I agree with all the above. If I had a group of 8-10, I'd call ahead, but not needed for a smaller group. Good food!!!
