Love the quality and variety of the food as well as the friendly staff. Never have to worry about a bad chew or a big bill.

Upstairs at the south-eastern end of Nordstrom's my wife and I found this great restaurant. All the locals know about it as it was very busy. A nice diverse menu with visual examples of almost everything so you will know what you will be getting. It is a buffet line where you can get a tray or not, start with... More

This cafe on the 3rd floor of Nordstrom has been my first choice for lunch when in the MacArthur Center since the mall opened.That must be at least 15 years. I don't eat in the food court, but have eaten in every restaurant that has ever been in the mall. Nordstrom is still first choice with me. I have eaten... More

The food is consistently great, and the desserts are amazing. The service is wonderful too, even when they're busy. We'll return again and again!

I just love Nordstrom's Cafe. I eat here at least twice a week & could probably eat here everyday. I enjoy everything about this place. The staff, the prices, the food, the atmosphere and the location. If you are looking for good food this is your place!!

Had lunch here with some friends on a Saturday! Food was excellent. Friendliness of staff was good. The meal was a little pricey, but not too bad. Cheesecake was good as always.

Skip the food court inside of Nordstroms is a cafe. It's reasonable prices the make most things fresh. They have sandwiches, roaster vegetables and meats, at least 2 soups. It's fast and it's a hybrid between a cafeteria type place and a restaurant. You carry your tray and select your items but then a waitress brings your food to the... More

This is my first visit to a Nordstrom's cafe and I was pleasantly surprised. The food was fresh with a great selection and everything was diplayed, so I could order "with my eyes"! The wait staff was very attentive and pleasant. I will definitely return with my hubby as this was a girlfriends afternoon!

It had been over year since my last visit, but once again the Nordstrom Café has proven itself a worthy alternative to the usual Granby St. fare and the other restaurants in MacArthur Center. My salad was handcrafted right before my eyes, and my pizza was cooked in their wood fired oven. There are many beverages and desserts to choose... More
