Novella's Bistro Now Open at North Independence Branch
The long wait is finally over. Novella's Bistro is now open, and the crowd is gathering. The food fare spans the clock, offering breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. The Pillsbury Croissant Scramble is a savory choice to pair with a French Roast Decaf or Cafe Venezia. The Crunchy Chicken Salad sandwich has the vote of several customers as an early favorite, but the Texas Brisket is a winning choice for a hearty lunch on a busy day. A relaxing cup of Grandma's Chicken Noodle soup is the perfect choice for a stress-filled day and, of course, a cookie for dessert.
