“Must Go”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

We happened upon this wonder cafe last evening and will go back for sure.
Had a chance to set at the counter and it was fun to see all the different meal being served go
by. Our meal was great. Prices are a value and the staff is very helpful and friendly.

If you are in the Melbourne area do stop by for lunch or dinner.

“Looks are deceiving, go inside, the food is fabulous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013 via mobile

I have driven past here so many times and thought it was probably diner food. My friend suggested it after she had had a killer chicken salad sandwich the week before. Walking in, the mood is friendly and welcoming. The new deck outside would be nice for night dining. The server was adorable and friendly and you can tell she feels empassioned about the food. They have specials for lunch and dinner and the ingredients were fresh fresh fresh. It took us over 15 minutes to decide what to order since the menu was so fascinating. There were dishes from all over the world. We started with the guacamole which had huge pieces of delicious avocado and fresh cilantro and other seasonings. Yum. Our lunches were equally delicious and even the iced tea was good. We had to split a dessert since the descriptions were too hard to resist. The chocolate mousse was made fresh as we waited and it was incredible, fluffy, intense and fabulous. I can't wait to try other menu items and to bring my friends. Kudos to the chef and the staff !

“An Absolutely Delightful Find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

My friend and I were hesitant about trying this restaurant, but we were so happy that we did. After perusing the menu, we thought that we would need to leave and try another restaurant because we are both vegetarians; however, our server came to our rescue. The server, who's name unfortunately I cannot recall, was a vegetarian also and she knew exactly what to suggest for our dinner. The food was so fresh and delicious and the service was great! Everything was positive except for the bathroom, they have a tiny little trashcan and it was overflowing with trash. Will definitely eat at this restaurant as often as possible, what a delight!

“A Must Try !!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

Husband and I tried this restaurant March 23, 2013 , I had the druken fish $15.00 it was fantastic , The fish comes with a side ,So I went with the carrot soup bisque, It was also great, Husband ordered Chile Relleno $12.00 and he really like his dish but not as much as he liked my fish, So to everyone that is thinking of trying The Nomad Cafe , I think you are going to have great food at a really good price. I love the menu there is something for everyone , There is only one down side to this restaurant and that is the food is fresh so you will have to wait for them to make it , But it is worth the wait !!!

“Stop driving By”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

OK, so we've driven by Nomad Cafe a bunch of times. On a whim, we stopped in for lunch two weeks ago. What a great surprise. The staff are friendly, helpful and responsive. The food is absolutely fantastic, prices reasonable, menu varied with new daily specials and servings are generous. We made it a point for lunch again, earlier this week and, the servers remembered us, same excellent service and food. Hint, if they ever offer the black bean soup, get it ! Just like homemade with fresh herbs, delicious !!
