Has anyone ate at the Nordstrom's Cafe?

I didn't even know that it existed but I understand the Norstrom's in the Providence Place Mall has a pretty good cafe restaurant. They even sell wine & beer. Can this all be true?

  1. I love the Nordstrom cafe. I've only been to the ones in Short Hills Mall, NJ and Menlo Park Mall, NJ, but they're the same. The chicken salad sandwich is wonderful. The atmosphere is very nice...definitely a step up from the food court.

    1. Yes, I've been a couple of times. It's good, WAY better than sitting at the food court. Nice booths, like being in a real restaurant.

        The Nordstrom Cafe is the best hidden jewel at the Providence Place Mall. Although you order your food cafeteria style, it is much better than a cafeteria!

        There are tables and booths with outstanding views of Providence. Glass dishes and barware are used with real silverware. It's a nice treat after shopping!

      2. I've been to the one at the West Farms Mall outside Hartford, but not in years. However, it was very good--definitely your best option if you're at a mall that has one.

          I peeked a few times into the one at WestFarms. The desserts looked very good! I never ate there but Nordstrom's in this location also has a coffee bar leading into the mall--I've purchased many a hot chocolate and cappuccino from there. My brother (he is autistic and is very picky) loves hot chocolate and when in the mall will only get it from the Nordstroms coffee place.

        2. I really like their pizzas and salads at the Cafe in Maryland....MUCH better than anything at the food court.

          1. I have eaten at the one in West Los Angeles, California and they had pretty good sandwiches.
