“Oasis in the Mall”
Review of Cafe Nordstrom

Cafe Nordstrom

Reviewed 23 November 2015

Hands down, the best place to take refuge and get good food and great service at the Columbia Mall. I usually go for the salmon or chicken with roasted vegetables- a very flavorful and healthy dish!! But the salads and desserts are great as well. The only downside is that they renovated this summer, and made it into a (semi-restaurant). After you order and pay you sit down to receive full service. While the customer service is awesome, the prices have gone up over 10%. So not quite as good a value but still a very good experience overall.

We had to wait a bit to order and be seated, but it was worth it. The system works- order & pay at the counter, wait to be seated, and your beverage is quickly delivered. In a flash, out comes the food. And it was delicious. We had two salads: shrimp and arugula & cilantro chicken salad. Both were incredibly fresh and yummy. You can request bread - do it. They brought each of us a warm roll and butter. Beverages were refreshed without asking and when the soda machine went on the fritz, I was given my choice of another drink. The peach tea was delicious. We shared a Royal cookie - a coconut, macadamia nut, chip creation. Ample size for two. And the server also brought chocolate mints to top it all off. The prices aren't cheap but it was worth every penny. Our server, Matthew, was very kind and attentive.

This is a wonderful spot to go for lunch at the mall. There are many child-friendly dishes and kids are given crayons and raisins before they get to the table. While it is a cafeteria style, the staff usually brings my food out to me, and it is spacious enough that strollers are easily moved inside. The food is delicious and relatively inexpensive. It's a great alternative to the food court or Panera.

This place is fantastic and you can not go wrong with the food and service. So many delicious salads, the pizza is amazing, the veg paninis are so great, the desserts are so tempting and the variety of drinks are great. They have everything for everyone and let's not forget their staple the tomato soup! Love this place and will always come back!

It was a pleasant surprise to find that the menu had my favorites from Richmond, as well as some new and exciting things. It's hard to find spinach salad in a lot of restaurants, & I appreciate the strawberry chicken salad here and the fact that it is easy to customize it to my liking. Nordstrom's does a really good job with this cafe, and the quiet atmosphere is a welcome change for most noisy areas inside a mall. Keep it up.
