Had a quick business lunch at Nearly Famous. Both of us had combinations of soups, salad, and sandwiches. Very good quality and quantity. They have a full menu, so just about anything you are looking for they have. It was really busy and in fact there were people waiting for a table most of the time we ate. Prices were... More

I've known the owners for several years and they know their business. They purchased this cafe from the previous owner quite a while ago and have carried on the tradition and improved upon it to boot! Nearly Famous has always been known for their Deli Tomato soup and salads and pastas. However I'm crazy about their Egg Salad Sandwich, but... More

My personal favorite lunch spot. Just across from the mall. Best lunch for both time & money. The food is fresh & excellent! My personal fave is the daily quiche & a bowl of Nearly Famous Tomato Bisque. Arrive by 11:30 for lunch or be prepared to wait in line for a table.
