My wife and I went to Nonnah's for dessert on our anniversary and once again it was excellent. Both of our giant pieces of cake were delicious and the ambiance is always great. The only downside is there are too many choices! We will be back.

What tremendous desserts Chef Galen made for our daughter's wedding. We were so very pleased and they were all absolutely delicious. He is a true gastronomic artist.

We have been to Nonnah's several times and always had a good experience. We ordered the Apple Pie, which when served had lost the shape of a slice of pie and looked more like runny mush. We also ordered a slice of cake. We didn't get the one we expected, but I think that was our fault. Both tasted good.... More

This place is terrible for lunch. I have been several times and the servicew is always extremely slow. Today I went at 1:45 and told the waiter I had limited time and gave him my order immediately. After 30 minutes a bowl with a biscuit was brought to the table. The biscuit was so undercooked that it was till dough... More

We stopped by for a late bite of lunch. We tried a tuna salad and a chicken sandwich and both were basic but as advertised, so perfectly acceptable. Service was alright. Decor was relaxed and one could see that if it was busier there could be a nice atmosphere. Cannot see how it rates as excellent, but perhaps the desserts,... More

I had been recommended by a few people to try out Nonnah's for dessert and coffee, so my husband and I did for our anniversary. The service was great, and the cafe was cute. It reminded me of a boutique non-chain version of The Cheesecake Factory. (and I say that as a compliment!) But the cake I got (it was... More

I had a much better experience at the old location across the street. I had high expectations since my previous visit was so great. The service was just ok, but the food was very disappointing. They ran out of ice cream, so some of the desserts were no longer an option. This was quite frustrating, as they specialize in desserts.... More

After a late night my friends and I decided to stop here. While it was near closing the service was very hospitable with our late arrival and we were seated immediately. The desert and coffee was wonderful.

We stopped in for dessert to go and chose the lemon cake and the chocolate raspberry. We were shocked when the counter person rang them up at more than $18.00. When we ate them an hour later in our room at the Inn at USC, we found them to be too dense with a course texture. The flavors were not... More
