Located in the Five Points neighborhood about 2 miles north of downtown (and two of our recommended hotels), NoFo is a unique find. It's housed in a former Piggly Wiggly grocery store and upstairs from the café is a gift emporium with all sorts of crafty odds and ends. The café isn't large and sometimes service can be a bit weak, but the local vibe, diverse menu and bright and funky loft-like ambiance with exposed brick make NoFo a great spot for a casual meal. And after you eat, you can browse the shops in this cute neighborhood. There is also a food market on site that sells specialty food items, beer and wine, coffee, tea and other yummies.
The menus change, but for lunch count on homemade soups, sandwiches, burgers (including a vegetarian spinach burger), quesadillas and big salads (iceberg wedge, grilled chicken over mixed greens and spinach, cobb, and a classic caesar). Customizers can hit the salad bar and create their own yummy green treat! Dinner's menu is bigger and offers a half dozen mostly heavy starters, various salads with option to add shrimp or chicken and entrées (filet mignon, roasted spring vegetables and grits, pastas, crabcakes, etc). Sandwiches and burgers can also be ordered for dinner. Brunch is popular here. Along with French toast, breakfast burritos, omelets, and shrimp and grits, lunch fare such as sandwiches, burgers and salads can be ordered.
