Great cafe in Nordtrom at Mall of America with a well balanced menu, and efficient service. Almost Panera like but with better options and more variety. Service was good, food orders were accurate, and although it was all a bit expensive it sure beats most other options.

This is a nice quiet restaurant to meet for lunch. The food was tasty, we shared a sandwich (good idea), they are good sized.

This is one of the hidden jewels at the Mall of America. It's on the top floor of Nordstrom's in the northeast corner of the store. You order your food at the counter and then it is brought to you. The dining room is spacious and has large windows. The food is definitely more expensive than the good courts but... More

WOW, this was a fun surprise. We wanted a bite to eat before heading home, and this was super fast and so nice. I had the quinoa roasted veggy salad, and a glass a wine. It was quiet, and so convenient.

We ate here after visiting Mall of America to shop at Nordstrom's, a treat not available to us locally. Everything we ordered was freshly prepared, flavorful, and in many cases, organic. Even the chicken fingers for our toddler were delicious! The service was a little slow and a bit understaffed, hence the 4/5 rating, but it was nonetheless a delightful... More

My friend and I actually ate at the Cafe in the Mall of America and the new location in Ridgedale. Both were not so great. The MOA location is like a fast food restaurant except after you order, they bring the food to your table. I had the Oriental Chicken salad. Have to say, Applebee's is much better.The servers apron... More

It's not often that you enjoy every morsel of your meal, but that was my experience. I had the shrimp & asparagus risotto and the shrimp were abundant, the asparagus cooked to perfection and the rice was creamy and flavorful. The service was friendly and the restaurant is quiet and peaceful. A nice break from the busy mall.

The restaurants in the mall are quite busy during prime times, but usually if you go here during peak hours there is little or no wait to sit down. They have fabulous desserts too!

I usually enjoy Nordstrom, quiet and delicious, but not today. First things first... the food never disappoints. I had the cilantro lime chicken salad and it is incredible. Seriously, try it!! The service though.... I'm not sure what actually happened. Tim was our server. He presented drinks then entrees... then promptly parked himself at a table (not assigned to him)... More

The Mall is a busy place, and Nordstrom provides a sophisticated retreat, from the maddening crowd. A student of people, or just an ardent people-watcher, will enjoy the location of this cafe.
