Café Nola is located at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in the lobby overlooking Hemming Plaza.  The Café’s Chef, Kathy Collins serves dishes that reflect the locally grown and produced foods of the First Coast. The menu, that changes six times a year, not only mirrors the seasons but also showcases our bountiful supply of seafood available from First Coast fisheries. Your first treat would be the changing Flavored Butters that are served with warm house-made yeast rolls --- delicious, with differently flavors depending on the day. Start with one of the “Munchies” from the menu--Kathy’s rendition of classically southern Pimento Cheese or the Flatbread that often showcases what is “Fresh from Florida”. Seasonal soups, salads, and pastas include local greens, herbs, fruits, and nuts with artisanal cheeses from area farms. Among the seafood menu items, Shrimp and Stone Ground Tallahassee Grits are a favorite of many Café Nola fans.

Chef Collins is originally from Chicago, Illinois where she graduated from Le Cordon Bleu (CHIC). She has been a personal chef both in Chicago and Jacksonville. Locally, Chef Collins was the Sous Chef at Pastiche in Jacksonville’s historic “Avondale” and had served as the Head Chef at Café Nola from June 2005 until November 2006.
