The Nordstrom in downtown San Diego has a cafe on the top floor. It sells mainly sandwiches and salads, but with a more upscale setting.

You line up and place your order and find an empty table. After that, a server will come over and bring your drink, your order, and service you throughout your meal.

The sandwiches here are pretty tasty. The sandwiches are panini sandwiches, served hot and toasted. BF and I had lunch there the other day.

We shared a salad and a sandwich. The salad was a shrimp louis salad. It was served with a hot sour dough bread.

We also ordered a chicken club sandwich. The sandwiches come with salad or chips.

At the end of your meal, they give you some chocolate mints.

It’s a nice spot to come for lunch if you work nearby or if you need a shopping break. I’ve always had attentive service here.

    The downtown location is more business-like I think (compared to Fashion Valley which seems to be all house-moms and kids).

    I went to the downtown location a month or two ago and found it to be really nice (I also went around 430ish so the place was pretty empty). But the booths were comfy and the service was great and not trying to rush you outta there.

    We always get the Mixed berry Chicken salad – have you tried that? And also the Pesto Chicken Panini. Both are so unbelievably good.

    They are known for their tomato soup – but i personally think it tastes like Prego sauce :) BUT, you must try their toasted sliced baguette that comes w/ the soup! They’ll usually give you a few for free if you ask.

    Nice post :) Happy new year!

      Thanks for all the tips. I never went to the Fashion Valley one. I’ve actually never had the mixed berry chicken salad or the pesto chicken! I’ll have to try next time. Happy New Year!

    I like the nice touch of chocolate(seems dark chocolate to me?) mint they serve at the end.

      Yes, it was a dark chocolate stick and there was mint inside. I like that touch too
