Nordstroms cafeteria is a great place for lunch. I go there often. It's convenient and located in McArthur mall on third floor of Nordstrom's. Great salads and a large selection of main dishes that will always please any appetite. Dry there woodfired pizza or the asian chicken salad.

We have eaten here several times, and like the French Dip best. The Carrot Cake is also good. It is pricey, but good quality..

Food is always fresh, service always friendly. Beautiful surroundings, delicious desserts. The best soda fountain in Virginia! What else can I say? It's our secret, but we want to share it with you!

This has to be the very best spot in the mall to take a break from shopping and actually get real quality food and drink. Their pizzas are excellent, the sandwiches are great. You can also have a beer or two if you like. Kind of a great man cave while the women folk shop.

Chicken club sandwich was the best, but also liked the cranberry turkey sandwich, turkey club grill and chicken bacon ranch pizza. The tomato basil soup was wonderful, esp the cracker/bread that comes on top. Got some nordi bars and saw some gorgeous cupcakes. Always eat here when we come to MacArthur mall.

We went to this cafe prior to Black Friday shopping. All of our food was great! Service was good. The only issue was the pizza oven was backed up so the pizza came out after everyone else had finished. Without us asking, the server brought us our money back for the pizza. That was a nice surprise!

You wouldn't think that a department store would have great food, but at the Nordstrom's cafe it did! The food was great ... I had the Niçoise salad with salmon. Very good! My sister had the crab Mac & Cheese and that was very good, however it could have use more & bigger chunks of crab. The table service we... More
