Relax And Refuel At Cafe Nordstrom

cafe-nordstrom-brea-mall

Shopping during the holidays can be a bit stressful. Last month, my family headed to Brea Mall to shop at our favorite stores and enjoy a tasty lunch.

Within a couple of hours we worked up an appetite, and before long my son said in his most dramatic voice, “Mom I’m hungry!” (note* he’s hungry all the time) Cafe Nordstrom was conveniently located on the 3rd floor at Nordstrom, and I figured this was a nice spot for us to unwind and refuel.

As I walked into the cafe it smelled heavenly… The Cafe is a casual yet chic, and evokes images of a contemporary European Marketplace. The menu had a great selection, and I knew it would be easy to please everyone of my kiddo’s palates.

Here’s a list of menu items that my family ordered with descriptions. 

Thank you Cafe Nordstrom At Brea Mall for hosting my family for lunch. All opinions are my own.

Everything on the menu is colorful, fresh, and appetizing. The attentive staff walked me through the menu selection.

We started out with this delicious ROMA TOMATO BASIL SOUP.

I was craving a salad and the waitress suggested this crisp and tangy CILANTRO LIME CHICKEN SALAD.

It is made with organic baby greens, romaine lettuce, jack cheese, tomato, grilled corn, pumpkin seeds, and a cilantro lime vinaigrette.

Dessert anyone?

The bakery section at Cafe Nordstrom is incredible. The pastries and selection of baked goods includes a variety of made-from-scratch cookies, lemon bars, layer cakes, creme brulee and much more!

My son loved and devoured this rich chocolate brownie…

This TOASTED COCONUT MACAROON was divine and my personal favorite.

I indulged but I felt guilt free because the food was fresh and made with high quality ingredients. Everything we tried was delicious and the prices are affordable.
