      Hipster hangout for vegetarians
      The Northstar Cafe now boasts two locations (one in the Short North and one in Clintonville). Rarely will you find Northstar when it's not packed to the brim with hungry vegetarians. But the food is really great -- and you go up to a counter, order, sit down and wait for someone to bring it out to you. So there's no tipping a waitress. And while you're waiting, you can browse a fashion or gay rag from the huge magazine rack in the dining area. Not sure what to try? For lunch or dinner, order a huge vegetarian burger served alongside a simple salad... or a scrumptious BBQ burrito served with tortilla chips and salsa... or a tofu-filled Buddha Bowl, which is peanut yogurt sauce with steamed brocolli, carrots, cabbage and rice. For breakfast, definitely nab an egg sandwich and a house blend coffee with soy milk.
