I visit this restaurant after church on Sundays with friends and this is our #1 pick. The food is great and the servers are friendly and attentive. The new ownership has expanded the menu and have some great new items. Anyone can find something to satisfy their taste buds. The "TUSCAN ONION SOUP" is one of my favorite new items.... More

Some of the reviews talk about updating the restaurant. I don't think that they should do a thing (the name is Nothin Fancy, for heavens sake). If you need fancy, go to an expensive restaurant! The food is good and the staff is friendly, attentive, and efficient. It is our must stop when we are in Edenton. We love the... More

Good food with many choices from soups to salads to plate dishes on the menu every day plus a good choice of daily specials. The atmosphere is very simple...nothing formal here.

This local restaurant changed ownership in 2016. Sadly, it's not the same place without Shannon and Gail. The food has always been average/good (not the greatest home cooking, except for some menu items - Brunswick Stew, chicken pot pie (really chicken & dumplings), delicious corn bread, several yummy desserts). A variety of fresh, seasonal vegetables are available, and the meal... More

So sorry you and your friends feel this way. I am engaged with the guests each and every day here at Nothing Fancy Café as I strive to make it the best it can be. If you have ever experienced a problem, I truly wish it would have been bought to my attention so that it could be made right,... More

I had the opportunity to eat at the Nothin Fancy Café & Market in December 2015 and 2016. The restaurant had average service with excellent food at a reasonable price. The restaurant is outdated and could use a facelift but the menu was extensive and the food was wonderful. I would recommend to those on a budget. Please keep an... More

I visited here 2 times while in Edenton and both visits I truly enjoyed the meal and atmosphere. They can really turn out some great meals and their collard greens and cornbread are to write home about.

The food was average (or maybe slightly better than average) but the pecan pie was out of this world!

We had been gone to Outer Banks all day and decided to eat here on a whim. So walked in and it is truly nothing fancy. But the food and service were good. Kind of a southern menu: meatloaf, salmon patties, corn pudding, greens, mashed potatoes, that kind of fare. Fun little gift shop at the front.

We went to this place last night because of the great reviews and I will agree, it was fantastic! All of the food is home made! It was delicious...ALL of it! The atmosphere is clean and you can shop while you wait for your food. It was a very nice experience! I wanted to try their home made desserts but... More
