My friend and I had lunch today at The Nomad Cafe and were pleasantly surprised. The unassuming outside belies the white tablecloth atmosphere on the inside - and the menu offered a range of interesting options. Our waiter explained that they locally source as many ingredients as possible - kudos for supporting the local economy! We shared a Greek salad... More

Had an early dinner on Monday night. Were early but by the time we had our dessert the place was full. Both of us had fish, one was the special of the night and served on flavored grits - down right delicious. Also had beer battered fish that was equally as yummy. The salad was small but very fresh and... More

Stopped there for dinner and it was excellent. The staff was friendly and they make a point of doing business with local producers. The only negative is the acoustics in the room, the main dinning room is very bad and it is hard to have a conversation. We had fish dishes for our main meal and nachos for starters and... More

The Nomad is my favorite restaurant in Melbourne. I recommed their specials, as they have never failed to impress me. All of their food is amazing though!

Found this little gem for lunch. Most items can be prepared Gluten Free. Friendly staff and great atmosphere. Only craft beers on the menu, with a decent wine list. All food made to order.

Great for any occasion! Great for business, friends, family and special occasions. Make reservations for dinner because this place is always busy. The food is always fresh and the service is excellent. They have daily specials which are always delicious and worth trying. Nice variety of sandwiches and salads. Gourmet food at a reasonable price.

Nomad Cafe is my favorite restaurant in Melbourne, by far! I take friends and family there whenever possible. It's a great place to take business associates who want a really, really good meal. The flavors are amazing. Although the regular menu items are very good, I always recommend the specials. If you haven't been here, you're missing out!
