Recommended by the owner of the B and B, and she was right!! Luscious!! Quinoa salad was the best ever. Bahn Mi sandwich was delicious. I have never had it but have heard it’s good. This one had local chicken and in fact local everything!

There is no alcohol served at Nova Cafe. With the strict and expensive beer and wine licensing in town, it is a no go. You may try one of the bars or evening places that offers brunch such as Copper, Starkys or Red Chair.
