We were looking forward to a good dinner at NOFO cafe, as we have read great things about it and good reviews. My husband and I went for dinner last Friday night and were highly disappointed. To start, the atmosphere was great and all looked good, clean, nice ambiance. We were seated next to the door of the kitchen but didnt let that bother us. I was planning on the shrimp burger since I read it was actually made in house and was not just shrimp on a bun, but was an actual ground patty. So when I ordered it at 7:30 on Friday night, I did not expect for the to be "out" of a main menu dish, not a special. Instead, I adjusted quickly to order the scallop appetizer as my main course along with creamed cauliflower. The scallops were in fact cooked perfectly, and are my favorite seafood. A little small on the portion (three, and on the smaller side for scallops) but they were local from NC and that was appreciated. The creamed cauliflower was HORRIBLE. It was extremely bland, not tasting fresh or flavorful, and basically was cauliflower sitting in a bowl of cream that did not taste cooked. My husband has the shrimp and grits. We cook a lot and have made much better shrimp and grits. They had no sauce or rue and just didnt have much flavor either. In fact, it is the same Crooks Corner recipe that we use, but theirs just wasnt worth the $, and wasnt good. We got the sweet potato fries as an app and they did taste pretty darn good. The rolls were sweet and were a highlight sadly. The worst part was 5 minutes after we left, making a immediate pit stop at a gas station as we could not make it another 5 minutes to our destination before stopping. Horrible stomach pains and nausea continued after that. My body still was not recovered the next day. We have never experienced this before and eat out plenty. Will not be going back, but if you choose too, be careful what you eat (only thing we both ate was the fries) and go for the local scallops.
