This was our second visit to Cafe Nola. The first time we were turned away, told they weren't seating anyone else that afternoon. Needless to say we were anxious to try this hot spot. We were sat right next to the door, which was unfortunate, as an icy draft came in every time someone entered or exited. My date got coffee, but I was told they were out of Diet Coke, and had no other sugar free options, so water it was. I was told the coffee was excellent. Later she got a Cafe Mocha, which apparently was also great. We started with the Southwest eggrolls, with a smokey tomato mayo. They were crispy and delicious. I ordered the bagel and lox sandwich with fried capers. The bagel should have been toasted, but otherwise it was very good. The pickled onions were a nice touch. That's where the good ends. My date ordered the coffee rubbed steak and eggs. She said the coffee was gritty and unpleasant in her mouth, the steak was otherwise unseasoned, and very watery. As she cut into her steak, the entire plate was a pool of liquid, making the eggs and potatoes soggy. Our service was very underwhelming. Our server was not very pleasant, never checked on us to see how we liked our food, and when he came to collect our dishes and saw the steak had barely been touched, didn't inquire or offer a to-go box. Would probably return for coffee and apps, but was not impressed with much else. Lunch for two was $60.
Nice spot located in Downtown Frederick. You can find parking at the nearby Carol Creek library parking garage or street side meter parking. The food was delicious, decor was colorful and highlighted that everyone was welcome, server was attentive without being overbearing. I had the shrimp and grits which surprisingly had real sized shrimp instead of the popcorn shrimp that most places serve. My only complaint was that the grits were too lumpy for my Southern taste.
Fabulous shrimp & grits! As good as New Orleans! Best spicy Bloody Mary I have had in a while. Sat at the bar, great service by Casey !
Visited on a cold, snowy day and everyone was welcoming and friendly. The German Chocolate Latte was perfect in every way.
A great café with good food and amazing service. Went with my family on a Saturday, and had a great time.
