Family owned business that makes everyone part of the family.  In 2011, brother and sister, Elaine and Victor Phuong both realized they were missing something from their careers. Elaine and Victor were part of a tight-knit family that enjoyed the communion of food and wanted to share their mom’s food with others. It was their passion of bringing food, family and friends that the idea of Nong Lá Cafe was born.

Nong Lá, which is the Vietnamese pronunciation of straw hat, serves homestyle dishes such as pho, bun and banh mi (add the cage free egg and you will thank us). We only use fresh, quality ingredients such as free range chicken, cage free eggs and filet mignon for our steaks. Most notably, we do not use MSG in our broths, which is why the flavors in our pho are so distinct, light and delicious.
