Cafe Nordstrom is a great little place for a light lunch inside Providence Place Mall. I was pleasantly surprised with my experience. I never even thought to stop at this cafe until I noticed a sign out by the front of the store. We usually always dine at the same restaurants in this mall, so we were happy to find a new place.

Cafe Nordstrom is definitely the hidden gem inside Providence Place Mall. Located on the upper level of Nordstrom, the cafe offers gorgeous views of the surrounding landscapes via the large windows.

I loved the food, classy atmosphere, and healthy menu options found at Cafe Nordstrom, which will be my new go-to spot whenever visiting Providence Place Mall.

Cafe Nordstrom appeals to me because they use healthy ingredients such as organic greens, cage free eggs, and hormone free dairy products. It is always nice to know that you do not have to sacrifice your health to dine out.

I ordered the Cilantro Lime Chicken Salad (minus the chicken) and Mike ordered the Chicken Mozzarella Ciabatta. We both really enjoyed our lunches. The serving sizes were moderate, not overly large like some restaurants, but not too small either. We both agreed that we were filled up, but not overstuffed.

Prices are affordable (approximately $10 a dish). You have the opportunity to look at all the dishes they offer beforehand through a display case, which is helpful for all the fussy eaters.

The menu is small, however, it is a great choice for those who enjoy salads, sandwiches, pizza, or pasta. Take a look at the full menu.


Service was great - very attentive and professional.


The dining room is elegant, clean, and provides great views as it is located on the upper level of Nordstrom. I felt that Cafe Nordstrom was a great escape from the hectic crowds found at the other restaurants inside the mall. This is definitely the hidden gem of Providence Place!
