I recently made my second visit to Nora Lee's Cafe in Old New Castle. First of all, if you haven't visited Old New Castle it's a great historic small town. There are no better views of the Delaware River and some of the home date back as old as any in Delaware. Once you're there, you'll want to visit Nora Lee's Cafe. I took my son and his girl friend and we had a great dinner. They have some nice beers on tap to complement the food. I had a chicken jambalaya which was a good sized dish with great taste. One of the things I like best was the peppers were perfectly cooked, just past crunchy. There was plenty of flavor but it was not overly spicy. My son had one of the specials which was a pork dish served on garlic mashed potatoes. He raved about it and ate every bite, preventing me from having a taste. His date had a salad which was huge. She enjoyed it and as a healthy, picky eater was glad for that alternative.
We didn't elect to have dessert but I have to say that the descriptions on the menu made them sound out of this world, and I belive the chef makes them in house. I also understand they have popular music programs on Saturday which can be standing room only.
I recommend you visit this gem off the beaten path
