I had a couple of meals at Northfield and was never disappointed by any. The food seemed to be prepared freshly and the setting is simply stunning. Of course, you might be able to find cheaper Dal Bhat around the corner, but Northfield is a bit of a treat and you do get what you pay for!

Northfield cafe had a interesting blend of genres. We listened to a live traditional Nepalese band playing Irish folk tunes while dining under Japanese lanterns over southwest Americian/Mexican cuisine. Well back up a bit. My food was Mexican inspired but wasn't exactly on target. I had chicken enchaladas and while my enchalada was busting full of shredded chicken unlike any... More

We dinned there for evening meal the other couple was vegetarian and we are not. We all left happy and full. Ordered a wide variety of foods from pizza to masala. I highly recommend this resturant if you are in the Tamil market area.

This place tucked in off the main strip has a huge selection of food items at reasonable prices and has live Nepalese music while you eat. The mexican selection is extensive. My burrito was very good and a large portion. Reasonably priced.

Party of 14 for dinner, food was excellent. Music that night was provided to raise cash for the Nepal earthquake appeal, you could buy a cd or make a donation.

My second breakfast in the city was at Northfield Cafe because quite-frankly the food was good. On entering Northfield Cafe, I was tended to, given a good seat and told to relax. I was guided to a seat beneath a patio window, I was told it was warm. It was. The sun shone above but not in my eyes. I... More

Loved this place for breakfast. I went here multiple times over the month every week. The organic Nepali coffee is amazing...brewed to perfection. I loved the banana pancake the Nepali style potatoes were delicious. The staff, especially the manager, is so kind and very aware to get the customer exactly what is ordered or custom ordered. Lunch is also great... More
