“Try the "Blue Plate Special"”
Reviewed October 17, 2013 via mobile

We have been going to Nofo for years, the Blue Plate Special can be our evening draw. Sitting at the bar for an informal meal in the evening can mean some interesting conversation. The Sunday brunch is popular, go early.

“Delicious spinach burger.”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

This place is really eclectic. It used to be a Piggy Wiggly Grocery and the décor is cool. Go often and always order the spinach burger!

“NOFO is a must do..”
Reviewed September 28, 2013 via mobile

Great people, food, and service.. A must do when I'm the area. Had the Crab Cake Salad and it was out of this world. While there visit the store upstairs .. One of the best sauces I've ever had was the Nephew BBQ Sauce.. Lots of neat NC products.

“Best veggie lasagne in Raleigh”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

I've never had a single item here that wasn't excellent. The pimento cheese dip is served hot with toasty bread and cool vegetables. It was my first time having warm pimento cheese and it blew me away! The veggie lasagne has this amazing pesto sauce and really great marinara. The portions are large, so it's two meals' worth. Great food and a cool little place. A good choice for taking out of town visitors who want to try something unique and not just the dang cheesecake factory every visit!
