Good desserts

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.

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

This place was terrific. Cute decor, and walking past glass cases full of desserts to reach the table---means one can hardly wait to order! They have sandwiches too, and maybe other food items but we were here for dessert. A coconut cake to die for, triple chocolate cake ( can't remember the others) all too good to describe-- and an...

You can see why they continue to win awards for their deserts. Go and try to choose - not easy. Had the largest and one of the best Red Velvet cakes I have ever had - and believe me I have had a few.

My husband and I ate at Nonnah's for the first time last Friday night. We had an early dinner so that we could make our evening event on time. The bartender was our server; I think he might need a lesson or two in customer satisfaction. My husband's pork chop was dry and tough, so he sent it back. The... More
