What a beautiful environment to relax and enjoy a delicious lunch! Sherry & Geyer greeted us like old treasured friends!
The butternut squash soup is by far the best ever.
My friend had the chicken salad and said it was fresh & delicious. George our waiter was superb & attentive.
A must for dessert is the Poppie Mango cake.
Top notch all around!

I took my mother-in-law for lunch & had so much fun! I hadn’t been there since they moved upstairs - and happened to mention that - so they gave us free cookies for coming back! Really friendly service!

Had a very ice lunch - terrific shrimp salad. The service was sketchy and slow even though there weren’t many people in the cafe. I’d go again and hope for better service.

Celebrated a birthday during a Monday 12-1 PM lunch hour. Loved the decor, and there were three other parties dining at the time we were seated. Besides the complimentary chicken broth and popovers with strawberry butter, I appreciated the freshness of the both the fruit and salad that accompanied my dish. I also wanted to recognize the excellent customer service Sherry provided. Because of Sherry, I plan on dining again at NM Cafe.

Perfect choice for gathering with friends or family. Friendly, relaxed staff allows you to enjoy your leisurely lunch & conversation with friends without pushing you to order or to turn over the table. Our table of 5 sat for 2.5 hours (we did leave a nice tip) enjoying our salads & quiche, glasses refilled without asking, signature popovers with strawberry butter & starter of Chicken Broth are reason enough to add NM Cafe to your short list for lunch or dinner.

Love the tiny cup of broth and the famous popovers when you first sit down. There were 2 different quiches that day and both were excellent. Nice to have a small salad and bowl of fresh fruit on the plate. Just the right amount of food on the plate. Service is excellent and you're not rushed. This is my 2nd visit and I'll be going back.
