Welcome to Nonnah's, Voted Columbia’s Best Desserts 19 years in a row... From 1998 thru 2017!

If you've already been to Nonnah's you know what a great addition it has been to the Vista. We offer an incredible savory menu, a full service bar with a wonderful list of wines, big frothy cappuccinos and desserts to die for! We've got a little bit of everything plus a relaxed, elegant atmosphere that combines warmth and sophistication.


Founded in 1996, and always family owned, Nonnah's was one of the first restaurants to set up shop in the Vista. We continue to impress the citizens of Columbia with our spectacular desserts (voted "Best of Columbia" nineteen years in a row by Free Times, The State Newspaper, The Columbia Metropolitan Magazine and the Daily Gamecock).

A new era of Nonnah's history began 2/20/2014.  After almost 18 years at 930 Gervais St. we moved across the street to 923 Gervais St.  We have worked to maintain our original ambiance and character. For questions about our venue or to plan your next event, please call (803) 779-9599.

"Wow, wow, WOW! We stopped in for coffee and dessert and we were absolutely blown away. The service was outstanding, the atmosphere was relaxing, and most importantly, the food was out of this world! The peanut butter pie was the best I've ever had. All the other desserts were very creative and enticing as well. We learned from our very helpful server that they also have great dinner entrees every night and local comedy night every 4th Thursday of the month so we will definitely be back. Perfect experience."

"I purchased a groupon and tried out their 5-course chef's tasting. It was truly an amazing experience. Every dish was top-notch and it was nice that our table could dine on different things based on their tastes. The lobster espresso still shows up in my dreams. Kudos to the chef." ❤️
