From the atmosphere to the service to the amazing food this restaurant is a "do not miss" when you are on the Island! Myself, a friend and our three kiddos (2 - 4 year olds and a 6 year old) headed over to Bainbridge for the day and had brunch at Cafe Nola. Not a lot of restaurants have a... More

Excellent food, excellent service in a very pleasant dining room. This was one of our best meals on this trip to Washington. We can sing the praises of Cafe Nola. If you get the chance to eat here, make it happen.

Visited here just off of the ferry. We did not have reservations and were told we could sit outside immediately or wait 10 minutes to see if a reservation was a no-show inside. We had a time crunch to meet the return ferry so opted for outside. We advised of our timing and were assured that would not be a... More

We came here for lunch on our first day in Bainbridge and should have gone back for our next mean. The hostess was so nice, the wait very short and we so enjoyed the patio. I was looking for seafood without something heavy and that's exactly what I got. It was the Tortilla Crab salad. It was also great that... More

After reading glowing reviews we visited Nola Café specifically for their "Fresh Crab". On questioning our server, we found that the crab was once again canned but was as" fresh as you could buy short of cooking one yourself." Both my wife and I, against our better judgment, opted for the "Fresh Crab Melt Sandwich" for $24.00 each. The Crab... More

We wondered into this place after stoping at a few shops on our 1st trip to Bainbridge Island. We sat on the patio and it sprinkled on us towards the end of our meal. We started with a local brew and a glass of rose. Followed by delicious New England Clam Chowder on special. And finished with some Mahi Mahi... More

We were actually directed to another restaurant for our maiden voyage to Bainbridge, but alas we wanted a sit down place and headed across the street to Cafe Nola. Viola! We knew we made the right decision when we were greeted with a Menu of Bloody Marys they offer on the table! We both ordered the traditional which was out... More

Cafe Nola is just one of those places. It doesn't matter if you're having a light lunch or a full dinner, the food is consistently delicious. The wait staff charming. The decor just right with beautiful original paintings. Outdoor seating available even with cool weather (outdoor heaters). The cafe is popular so waiting a few minutes is normal (and worth... More

We happened upon Café Nola because we liked the outdoor patio, and we were so glad we stopped. The food was excellent, and the service impeccable. The chef created wonderful flavors and textures with the food combinations, and created plates that were not only delicious, but beautiful to look at. The café has a wonderful selection of wines that paired... More

We had a wonderful lunch here. Beautiful day, so we go ate outside. Fun cocktail menu. I definitely recommend the Limoncello Lemonade. The Bird salad was perfect - moist chicken with dates, goat cheese and almonds. My husband enjoyed his chicken club sandwich as well and thought the fries were very well done. Great service. A wonderful place to catch... More
