About this business
From Our Editors
At first glance, Café Nova cuts a humble figure, with its glowing sign, picture windows, and boxy façade that originally housed a cleaning business. Inside, though, guests are treated to ultracontemporary flourishes with local art gracing exposed-brick walls and industrial-style light fixtures illuminating black leather booths. This dichotomy was set up by local design gurus to create an inviting atmosphere where people from all walks of life can feel at ease and enjoy nights out with friends. That blend of traditional and modern extends to Café Nova's menu of diner dishes retrofitted with gourmet techniques. Chefs make meatloaf with Black Angus beef and dot tater tots with cheddar and diced ham. They also incorporate ingredients from local suppliers such as Brown Egg Bakery, Urban Agrarian, and Forward Foods, and serve water exclusively from Oklahoma reservoirs.
