We are semi regulars at Cafe Nola. Great food, great service, great atmosphere. A fun place to take out of town guests. I've never had a bad meal here. HANNAH the bartender/waitress is awesome! Desserts a must!

Nice, convenient location. Average food and decent service. Somewhat pricey for the portion size - at least for the portions I had.

I was very disappointed in the Café Nola. Very crowded with tables close together. Noisy. My friend and I both had the scallops, just okay, overall the food was bland. Very small portions. Very slow service. Very inattentive. It was pricy so I expected much better. There are other seafood places to go for the price.

We enjoyed our dinner at Cafe Nola altho we were perplexed with the odd side dishes. My salmon was cooked perfectly and the sauce was a yogurt/mint sauce which tasted odd as if the mint was dried mint rather than fresh. A dill sauce would have suited the salmon better. Accompanying the salmon was a mix of cubed red potato,... More

Our waiter was very personable and engaging. Dinner on the deck was enjoyable although not memorable. Probably better as a lunch spot than a dinner spot.

We have a great lunch after touring Bloedel Reserve. The grilled salmon sandwich was super as were the fish tacos. It is an eclectic little place and a number of us made a bee line to it after getting off the shuttle bus back from the Reserve. A very nice treat.

We had lunch at Cafe Nola mid week. We found the servers very friendly and the food very tasty and well presented. The cafe is situated on the left hand side of the road if you are coming from the ferry. It is quite close to what I can only describe as the town square.

Looking for some excellent food and outdoor seating, this restaurant fit the need. The staff was courteous, and we got seated right away without reservations on Father's Day. It was most enjoyable. Will go back.
