Stopped in Columbia on a road trip. Never been to the area before. Wandered around looking for a nice lunch spot and chose Nonnahs! What a great choice. Everything was amazing and service was quick and friendly. Homemade biscuits were still warm as was the croissant. Would definitely recommend this place.

We googled "Columbia Best Desserts" and found Nonnah's. Nonnah's has a vast menu of desserts, a full bar, and pleasant staff. Short and sweet (pun intended) we confirm best desserts in Columbia.

Excellent foods and wines. The restaurant is run by a pastry chef. What else can I say. You will not leave hungry or disappointed in any way.

My friends and I arrived ready to enjoy the fancy (and expensive) desserts at Nonnah's one Friday evening. While my friends' slices of cake looked homemade; my slice of Apple praline pie left much to be desired. I could tell it was a frozen, store -bought, highly processed dessert. To add insult to injury it was also improperly baked; the... More

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
