I eat at the Nomad on a regular basis. The food is amazing, service excellent, wine list and atmosphere fabulous. We have never had a bad experience or meal. The menu is varied with many specials not found in any other restaurant in Brevard. My son had Duck Breast's with Waffles, I had the "Drunkin Fish" a tequila reduced sauce... More

What a nice surprise to find a restaurant of this caliber in historic downtown Melbourne. The cafe is small and sweet. Nice bar to enjoy a glass of wine while waiting for our table. All of our food choices were excellent. One of the special apps last night was dirty rice. It was so delicious we ordered another plate! Rice... More

All kind of cuisine: Mexican,American, Mediterranian, French, ecc.. Healthy and fresh food distributed from the local farms. While you are waiting for the food to come they serve homemade tortilla chips with salsa for free. They have a weekly menu. A big menu of wines. Wonderful people. Cost: You spend the same as other places in town. I have been... 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
