This is a small bar in Milburg with great food. I get the deluxe cheese burger with extra green olives every time I go. It's one of the best burgers I've ever had and it's only like 5 bucks. They use good quality meat and grill the bun so it's perfectly golden around the edges. They have two pool tables in the back that are almost never used during the day.

Fun, adventurous flavors in a really sweet setting! This was my second time here, and I brought my sis, and her two love dumplings along with me. She had the strawberry shortcake, I had the raspberry along with the mole chocolate one, and my niece had the coffee gelato. I'm sorry that I can't be more specific about the types of gelato we had, I tasted everyone's and they're all swirling and blending wondrously in my head. Honestly, I have not met a flavor I didn't like at this place. It's a matter of tasting them to find which one you like the BEST. You gotta try it. It's what all the cool kids are doing.
Stopped in over the summer with the kids and LOVED their gelato! I had the lemon flavor....amazing. Such an adorable spot too. We will be back in the fall for sure.
Great gelato though not a huge selection of flavors. Those they had were unique and delicious. Come on out and support the renaissanc of this neighborhood. Roasted pistachio was to die for!

The Mason Jar Cafe

Reviews:
YES! Friend and I were in the St. Joseph area and needed a place for brunch and omg this was a good call. The location and interior is really nice. Spacious and hip with a lot of artwork. I told my friend that if we didn't drink out of mason jars I would be very disappointed. And I was not disappointed. I ordered the spicy egg sandwich and it was divine. Guacamole, spicy aioli, and egg combined so wonderfully. I wished I lived in the area because I honestly dream about this thing. Definitely a place you need to check out if you're in the area. It closes at 3 so give yourself enough time to enjoy!!
Every time I come here, the star goes down . The food is so good but the little things are always messed up. There is never silverware on the table. Every time I'm forced to watch my hot food cool down while someone chases down silverware and straws. Every time. And the dog policy has to be addressed. I have a terrible soft spot for dogs, especially big ones. I have a big dog that I love to pieces but I don't love him at the dinner table. I certainly don't love others' dogs at the table. Leave your dog outside the patio (or perhaps at home).
Okay, I had several of my friends recommend this place having vegan options so I had to try it out. I ordered the vegan style Huevos Rancheros while my wife ordered another entree vegan style. I say it was okay, but the portions were rather small and each dish was rather pricey. After that meal my wife were unsatisfied and still hungry. We felt that we could make the same entrees at home with larger portions and less price. It wasn't awful, but at the same time, it wasn't WOW. Limited options for vegans.

Cafe Mosaic

510 W Main St

Reviews:
My favorite coffee shop/resale place. I've studied at this cafe many times over last semester. It's a good buzz with nice and friendly people. The mocha frappe is delicious when made right. And the chipotle veggie burger always hits the spot. I love that they offer books for so cheap! It's my favorite part. All of the ones I own are in great condition!
Some what different that what you might expect looking in from outside, or passing by on the road. We just cam off the lake from a fishing charter, and were looking for lunch. We say the Cafe sign and stopped. Glad we did. They offer a nice selection of sandwiches, and baked goods. I have a Michigan Cranberry Turkey sandwich on Sourdough and it was a great sandwich. This place is a non-profit that is teaching people "job skills" so it is good to support them in their mission.
Decent lunch food, a tad pricey for what you get

What a great place for burgers. I had the Olive Burger and my buddy had the Patty Melt. Both were delicious. Thank you Rachel for such great service!! There were a lot of UM fans in watching the game, but she did a stellar job! I'll definitely be back!
Mickey over cooked my burger. Bastard. Marianna our server was nice for a slow pregnant woman. I heard it's the cooks baby.
Best burger since the old Silver Dollar. Great place for watching any sports game. Jukebox is super tight.

Phoenix Rising

Reviews:
Yum. Try a soymilk steamer with a squirt of Torani flavored syrup in it. Delicious. Also, the atmosphere is pretty nice. I'm no coffee drinker, so I can't comment on the joe.
This is a big-city-type cafe that would normally attract hipsters galore. While you do have that clientele, there are also business people, locals, and general randos who frequent the place as well. Admittedly, if it's a busy morning it can be a bit too loud for my tastes. However. Four Words. Ham And Gruyere Croissant. This pastry can reduce me to a drooling, vacant-eyed zombie, it is so delicious. Crispy, salty, fatty, slightly sweet. It is perfect. The chocolate croissants are only lesser because, COME ON, Gruyere cheese. Some of the specials can be a bit pretentious, but it's worth it. A hidden jewel in the "Arts District" (Cough Cough) of Benton Harbor.
The Phoenix is a diamond in the rough. They brew Intelligentsia coffee, and I have never been disappointed. Their food is great, and the ingredients are fresh, and delicious. The huevos is one of my favorites.

Reviews:
My fiance and I were in town for a wedding and wanted a quick place to grab a bite to eat before checking into our hotel. We yelped places (as we normally do when in a city we've never been to) and I am so happy we chose this restaurant. Everything was terrific, the service, the meal, the drinks, the atmosphere. It is an amazing spot right by the waterway that I feel everyone should check out. Oh and you can not leave without trying their pink lemonade cake, to die for! Thanks for a great meal and experience!
I love eating at the Bread Bar. The atmosphere is very comfortable. Casual dining with a view of the St. Joseph River. Smoked Whitefish salad is great . Eggplant Parmesan sandwich is a favorite. Desserts are fantastic. Pink lemonade cake is the best, but seasonal.
This is a great place. The food is clean tasting and portion sizes are just right. We had lunch here - waiter was busy but attentive nevertheless. Dessert - the strawberry shortcake is a must try! Lovely! I'd go back for sure.

Taqueria El Faro

Reviews:
This is a small, family owned restaurant. Good and fast service! The dishes are excellent and large. I would definitely visit this place again. This has become my to go Mexican restaurant.
Nice Mexican place, had the wet burrito and it was great. Service was great and food came out very fast. Food is price well as well
Is El Faro really not on Yelp yet...?? It is kind of hard to find now that the sign over the door was destroyed, but there's still a sign at the street! Right across from Taco Bell - try this instead next time you want a two-dollar taco! I like this style of Mexican. I think it's more like El Sol than La Perla (though I like La Perla, too). Plus, no lard in the refried beans! Yay! Vegetarian friendly, and not too pricey. Just a nice little place with a good variety of fresh options.
