Nordstrom Cafe- Surprisingly good
Hubby and I hit went to the mall in Towson over the weekend to run a few errands. We lunched at the cafe inside Nordstrom, next to women's sporty-wear. I had the soup/salad/half sandwich combo and husband had the tuna-melt. My soup was an OUTSTANDING crab bisque, and I also had tuna salad for my half-sandwich. Though there was a glitch and our food was slow to come out, it was definitely worth the wait and the staff tried to make up for it with free soup offer, etc. Our drinks were constantly refilled and we left happy, despite the delay.
If you can stand the screaming children, I would definitely recommend this place. It's way better than Donna's (not hard given their crazy-bad service) and leaps and bounds above the mall food court. I don't see it being a destination dining spot because of it's location, but it just might be for us because our experience was so good.
