Cafe Nova

It's been far too long since we did a restraunt review - so back to the roots of the Dining Diva we go for a delicious Lunch at Cafe Nova!

Here's What we ordered:

We started with the Super Nova Salad; a salad of field greens, crumbled blue cheese, dried cherries, walnuts, and a light strawberry vinaigrette
Then we were surprised by a gourmet tot - Yukon potato, sharp cheddar and black forest ham tater tot with a touch of ranch dressing- by far the best tot I've ever had! + who doesn't like a bonus appetizer?

Salmon club, fresh grilled salmon on brioche with baby spinach, tomato, bacon, lemon caper aioli. I would rate the salmon club a 6/10 on the Diva Star-studded scale. It was ok, the salmon was a little over done, but it had good flavor.
The Chicken sandwich on a kaiser bun with melted brie, mango chutney. The Chicken Sandwich was Delish! The chicken was cooked perfect, brie - how can you go wrong with brie? and the chutney was fantastic! The Chicken Sandwitch gets 8/10 Diva Stars! 
Nova mac & cheese a penne pasta cheddar and parmesan mac with tomato toasted bread crumbs. I L-O-V-E - Love Mac & Cheese! The Nova Mac did not disapoint! It was rich and creamy and hd just the right "bite" to it.  The Nova Mac was out of this world and earns  9/10 stars.
Overall Nova is a Diva Do - The lunch specials are a great value, the staff is friendly and attentive and the food is far better than your run of the mill lunch rush. So if you're in the area give Nova a try.
