Nonnah's has its good and bad. The atmosphere is different: a skinny space with various art styles on the wall. It features deserts, but serves meals too. I have often eaten lunch there, but never supper. So take that with a grain of salt (if you need any salt). The menu is boring, with only one sandwich and soup change... More

I ordered an Oreo cheescake for my husband's birthday-- two of his all-time favorite combinations. The Nonnah's staff were very prompt and helpful in taking care of my order during a busy time. Their customer service is great! The special order cakes are very large and the cheesecake weighed about 20 or so pounds. While tasty, the cheesecake was heavier... More

The only reason Nonnah's has three/five is because the desserts are actually delicious. Everything else is awful. The service, the staff, and decor is all sub par. You will not have a friendly waiter or waitress- go on and accept that before you walk in the door. Don't bother with the actual menu items. There are plenty of restaurants surrounding... More

Expanding from desserts to offering bistro food and moving across Gervais street sadly do not seem to be positive steps for Nonnah's. On a recent visit there I thought the restaurant was rather tired looking, and the food decidedly mixed in quality. My chicken sandwich had bland chicken and a very soft bun that squished into nothing. But a friend... More

The Bananas Foster is hands down the best dessert in Columbia! It is worth a visit to Nonnah's just for that alone. There are plenty of other desserts and drinks like cakes and coffees too. Nonnah's is definitely worth a visit.

Desserts are incredible. Tried two desserts - the Chocolate Temptation and Strawberry Amaretto cakes were exceptional. Treat yourself to something different and visit Nonnah's.

Tried the sugar cookie and brownie. I was quite disappointed. I ended up throwing it away approximately 5 bucks later!

While passing through town we wanted to stop and get out of the car and grab something sweet. Nonnah's had a ton of excellent recommendations for just that, and it wasn't too far off the highway. We got seated all the way in the back, and were having trouble getting waited on. We waited for drinks, we ordered two desserts... More

I have only had desserts here. The cake with Godiva chocolate is wonderful, as were the other desserts I've had there, but nothing is cheap.
