Very nice deli-style sandwiches with abundant french fries. Nice selection of beers and desserts, but the latter go as high as 1500 calories. I'll give them credit for listing the calorie count. The place, tucked away in the back of the 2nd floor of a busy dept. store, is somewhat hard to get to, but worth the trip. The walk... More

Have eaten here several times and enjoyed the food and atmosphere every time. Love their fries. A little pricey for the portion sizes sometimes but a good change of pace form the standard mall fare.

Tired after rummaging through dozens and dozens of clothes racks? Getting more and more hungry and need a place to wind down with friends? Well, Nordstrom's Cafe is the place to go. Why? Well, if you don't know already, it's for the ONION SOUP!! It is simply fabulous! Don't forget to order a nice glass of white wine to complement.

I grew up first in Chapel Hill, then moved New York City. My mother took me to Lord and Taylor for haircuts, followed by lunch in the department store's restaurant. Pleasant memories. This Nordstrom's Cafe brings that pleasure back, for me, and many of my women friends. We visit here 5 or 6 times a year for lunch, and are... More

This restaurant provides you with not only healthy, delicious and imaginative meals, but also decadent and delicious desserts you will not find anywhere else! A couple of friends and I dropped in a for lunch today and were disappointed that our favorite dessert of seasonal berries and shortcake was sold out for the day. The very gallant, professional and compassionate... More

We choose to go to Streets of South Point not only because it has everything store-wise, but because we love to eat at Nordie's Cafe. The food is fabulous & the service always great! The Citrus Turkey & Crab Bisque are favs! Great French fries - worth every calorie - especially with the aioli! Great pizza & salads too. Best... More

Go just for the White Chocolate Bread Pudding! Service can be slow during busy times but we are never sorry to wait. I've never gotten anything I didn't like and it's a great place to relax a bit on a day of shopping.

My cousins took me out to lunch while visiting family. I've always seen the cafe in Nordstrom back in Portland but I never wandered in to take a look. We sat in front of the grill and watch as the food was prepared. I ordered the grill chicken panini with fries along with a french dipping sauce and it was... More
