We had my work Christmas party here recently. Excellent service and my Apple Chicken and garlic mashed potatoes were delicious. I had the cookie and ice cream for desert and was disappointed that the cookie was cold.

This was not our first visit to Nora's, but it was our first experience of the breakfast menu. The "Lazy Sunday" menu item with its hollandaise sauce topping over sunny side eggs, and hash browns and veggies sounded intriguing. In a word or two, very...More
