COLUMBIA, S.C. — Nonnah's, a longtime restaurant in The Vista, is closing its doors for good after more than 20 years in business.
Nonnah's was founded in 1996 and has remained family owned over the years.. They were a popular spot for desserts downtown and were voted "Best of Columbia" 19 years in a row.
The restaurant lived on Gervais Street for 23 years, inhabiting two addresses in The Vista during their time in business. They spent almost 18 years at 930 Gervais St. before moving across the street to their current location at 923 Gervais St.
They offered different food, drinks and desserts. Their walls were covered in art, and they often held local events- everything from parties to live music.
Their closing announcement came in a Facebook post on Monday.
The post reads:
"It is difficult to say goodbye because it has been an amazing 23 years, but it is time.
