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.

I was pleasantly surprised when I asked if they could do a lox omelet and they said "no problem"...and they didn't charge me a ridiculously large price for it. The staff was ALL greatly friendly and fun. The coffee wasn't all that great, however.

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!!!
