A great find just travelling through Melbourne

It wasn't that hot out but we chose to sit outside. We had a delightful, enthusiastic waitress who truly sold the menu. She couldn't have been more positive about the restaurant which makes it much easier on the customers, and it wasn't fake, she was serious. I had a delicious chicken sandwich on a... read more

With a not-too-pricey menu, I did not expect the food to be as delicious as it was. We asked our server to recommend a couple craft beers for our meals and the pairing made lunch even better. I look forward to visiting again and possibly having the same waiter as before because he was excellent.

The Nomad Café is my absolute favorite place to eat in Melbourne! The chef is definitely 5-star. They cut their herbs fresh from right outside the front door. The food combinations with complimenting sauce drizzled on the plate creates a flavor explosion in my mouth. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and professional. They recognize my husband & I everytime we... More

We go there at least a few times a year and it takes us over an hour to drive there. We'll worth every penny. The food reminds me of the meals you see on TV or in big cities. I always try something new and have never been let down. By far my favorite place to eat.

If you like local and organic, you can't go wrong at the Nomad Cafe. All dishes have the chef's creative flair, and the service is great -- personable and attentive. What a happy find. We went there twice during our few days in Melbourne. Highly recommended.

Wanted to try this restaurant due to the reviews that I read. My girlfriend and I had lunch. Was a surprise to walk into the restaurant and see the inside décor. Not what expected from the outside. Linen tablecloths and napkins were a nice touch. The menu selection is large and there is something for everyone. We had a hard... More
