This place is interesting -- the menu offers a variety of options from American, Mexican, to Asian. Parking isn't easy ... you may have to park on the street or around the corner. Pricing is a little high, but maybe for the little bit of "swanky" atmosphere it's appropriate. I had a BBQ pork sandwich with tea and it was... More

We've been noticing how this small restaurant gets hammered at noon so we decided to go in at 11:45AM on June 10, 2014l,.and see what all the excitement was about. Within ten minutes after we were seated at the last table available patrons began lining up outside. It's about GOOD. Pleasant greeting, efficient waitress and marvelous innovative food with good...

I've been to Nomad several times over the past year and have never had a complaint- the food is always outstanding. The specials are amazing and the staff is good about accommodating any dietary needs that you may have (I avoid gluten and there are often gluten free specials in addition to the several menu items that are gluten free)....

My office is located across the street from this former sandwich shop. My wife and I have been to Nomad Cafe 20+ times since they opened. Not once were we disappointed about any part of our experience - the meal or the service. The outside "look" belies what is inside: linen tablecloths, glassware and silverware settings, and reasonably priced absolutely... More

A friend and I stopped by for lunch one day and I was glad we did. I had drove past the place many times. My friend had been there several times and she got to pick where we were going to have lunch. Good pick. Good menu selection. Place was a bit crowded and we sat at the bar. Service... More

Best Pork Milanese I have ever and white glove service. This is a restaurant to watch! I will always consider this the nicest restaurant on the Space Coast!

Looking at the building when you pull into the parking lot leaves you with a "what kind of place is this?" look. But when you step inside this cute place and eat the food you will want to keep coming back. Their menu ranges from Mexican inexpensive to gourmet Greek and Italian. The wine choices are superb. If you have... More

Finally got a chance to try The Nomad Café today. My husband and I have passed so many times remarking what good things we've heard about the Café and how much we'd like to dine there. Well, the stars finally aligned and we met for lunch today. Glad we did! Since it was such a beautiful day we opted to... More

We finally made the time to drive to Melbourne and experience this tiny jewel of a dining experience. Megan met us at the door and had the perfect table for the five of us. Unbelievably premier menus with many local products in cuisine. Wonderful meals for all of us. Sauces perfect compliments to main dishes, well thought out wine list,... More
