Good Food, Neighborhood Vibe

Limited menu but reliably good food. My husband and I have our favorite dishes which we tend to order again and again. I like the cosy setting.

Atmosphere was "just OK". Service was "just OK". Food was tasteless with no flavor, seasoning. Really very bland. Wasn't "bad", it was "just OK"! The owner was very receptive when we talked with him and took our review well. Won't go back there as I like more flavor to my food.

Went to Nest Cafe last night/Friday night in pretty bad weather - so not many folks out and about, which was fine by us. Made reservations just in case at 8:30p, and that was handled over the phone and easy. The place is easy to find, and we found parking right next door without any issue at all (again, likely...

The veggie burger at Nest is unique; it has a layer of sauteed spinach between the burger and the bun. The desserts are great, too. The live jazz music they have on weekends is really outstanding!

We ate at Nest last night and had a very mixed experience. First, the good points - we were immediately warmly greeted by the hostess and seated right away. Our waiter was attentive and friendly, and when my seafood pasta dish was served, he whisked it away saying he thought it didn't look right and brought it right back -... More

The food is good, the people are great and the environment is welcoming. You cannot go wrong. MUST GET THE TUNA BURGER AND AN ORANGE CRUSH! Jerk chicken is amazing as well.

We had a fantastic brunch here, they have a number of different omelettes (I had the greek omelette with spinach, olives and feta, very good), Benedicts and lunch options as well. The food was great, could have use more than the 2 little slices of toast but overall it was great. The only reason I deducted a star was for... More

A great spot with a nice variety on the menu. Had a nice seafood pasta and interesting calomari. Others has a great hangar steak but the tuna burger looked like the big winner. Pizzas great too. Nice surprise was half price wine on Monday night!

We have been here many times- the service and food choices are always wonderful. The salads and appetizers are generous portions, nicely presented and very tasty. The specials are good as well. Tonight, though we did not order any specials, we did see some "go by us" and they looked very appetizing. The venue itself is very "cozy" and warming.
