I have been to the Nomad Cafe several times, and LOVED it every time. Just visited for lunch on 8/25/14, and it was a huge letdown. My kids cannot have gluten, and the waiter assured us the fries were gluten free. They were breaded, and my kids both got teary eyed when they had to be returned. My Greek salad... More

I am very sorry you had such a bad experience Monday. Though excuses do not remedy the situation, I do want you to know we were very short staffed in the kitchen on Monday, and though we did the very best we could, it apparently did not go as smoothly as we anticipated. I can assure you this will not... More

Our friends took us last night for the first time. They made reservations and there was no waiting at all. It's very clean and has outdoor dining and two indoor dining areas. Very cheerful and accommodating staff. We all started with carrot soup. Fabulous choice! Then one person had hibachi steak and pork loin with root beer infused BBQ sauce... More

Having driven by this spot on numerous occasions, we decided to try something new and boy was it worth it! Not knowing quite what to expect, we were pleasantly surprised by the overall ambiance. Catering to both indoor and outdoor dining, interior was a bit eclectic yet intimate. The service was excellent, our waiter was helpful and attentive but not... More

We had driven by so many times and didn't stop because of the list of different ethnic foods listed on the front of the building, figuring they couldn't be good at all of them. We shouldn't have judged them because of that. I ordered the chicken salad sandwich and my husband ordered the philly cheese steak wrap. They both came... More

We ate at Nomad's Cafe tonight with our daughter and her boyfriend. We've eaten here several times in the past and it's consistently good food! Tonight I had the cream of carrot soup for the first time, which is a definite must eat! It was so good. I had fajitas, husband had stuffed eggplant. Both were excellent. I'd recommend making...

Wowza! Two nice entrees - Cuban sandwich, Spinach enchallidas, tasty potato soup, hummingbird cake, glass of wine, and interesting IPA for $45. What's not to like? Each food item was excellent - tasty but not trying too hard with spices that don't work. Portions were quite adequate and dessert was just as well thought out as the entrees. Seating was... More

The not so fancy building might be misleading, because the food and service inside was outstanding. No matter what the place looks like, if you have white tablecloths, and servers in white shirts, ties and aprons, it's a good thing. Our waiter was very pleasant, patient, knowledgeable and great with the wine list - which had some interesting selections. But... More

A friend told me about this place and my husband and I finally checked it out--WOW! I am glad we did--might be our new favorite place! The food is delicious! Everything tastes so fresh and flavorful. We started with the guacamole and chips. It was a perfect amount and the guacamole was fresh and chunky. For dinner I had the... More

My husband went to the Nomad Cafe after seeing its menu at a B&B we were staying at and liking the multicultural choices listed. They also list if the food happens to be vegan or even gluten free. When we got there we found a lovely little restaurant (formerly a gas station) turned into a cross between a 50's diner... More

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
