Perfect spot for a lunch! Nice menu selections and at reasonable prices. Something for everyone! Be prepared for it to be crowded on the weekends and during the lunch hour.

Even with the remodel I did not notice it was loud. The Saturday fashion shows at lunch is nice. The popovers are excellent as is the expresso glass of chicken broth they offer with your meal! Worth a try!!

I have been visiting this place with my daughter for years. I love the fact that it is situated within Nordstrom's. After a long day of shopping you can relax in a peaceful environment. I love their soups and sandwiches.

Love the food there.. salads and tomato soup are the best!! But since the remodel it is very noisy to the point of distraction.... someone made a mistake... or else they want to get you in and out!

We stopped in to look at the menu and thought we would give it a shot. How nice for us. You order your food first then seat yourself. We split the pear salad that we both loved, had the roasted salmon with veggies, yum, and a pasta dish that was delish.

The food was fresh, our waitress was helpful and friendly, and the location was perfect. Don't forget to save room for a delicious Nordstrom cookie!

As odd as it seems, the cafe at Nordstrom serves some of the best meals in the area. Try the steak - it is tender, flavorful and delectable. The salads and sandwiches are both generous and very good. Service is perfect and food quality and freshness is second to none. I would suggest bringing earplugs. It is a LOUD restaurant.... More
