“super, yummy, delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Nooner Café is a super, yummy, delicious, place to eat. It’s a small intimate café with local flair, located in historic Opera Alley, Old Town Eureka. The service can be slow, be patient, it’s well worth the wait. Go there when you have some time to relax and dine. Excellent ingredients and a well thought out menu makes for scrumptiousness in any of your lunch favorites. Even the standard hamburger tastes amazing and like something special. If the weather is good, the out door seating is nice for those with kids and pets.

“Hole-in-the-wall gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

Our family was strolling around the historical district and were happy to discover this lunch spot. Food was delicious and reasonably priced. Our teen boys were very happy with their burgers and my flatbread was very tasty. Kids menu pleased our youngest as well. Good local wine selection served by a friendly wait staff. Loved the decor on the walls, too! Great spot!

“Great lunch but breakfast was disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

I am writing this review in regard to two visits to the Henderson Center location. I had a wonderful burger there about a month ago. I convinced my husband that we should drive all the way to Eureka to try out the breakfast there on the weekend. Sadly neither of us enjoyed our breakfast--my food was burnt and his food was cold. Alas. Maybe we picked the wrong morning to try breakfast there. I will certainly go back for lunch again. The service was good. It's too bad that our breakfast was such a disappointment.

Great little lunch spot. Delicious flat bread and Poorboy options. Fresh ingredients. Hibiscus tea is a special treat. Give this place a try.

“Henderson Center has a Cafe Nooner now too”

The soups have been very delicious and the service is very friendly. When I am not in a hurry, I will return to try some other items.
