Niva's Restaurant is open for breakfast and lunch, serving breakfast all day. Finnish pancakes and mojakka are served, which are really their only Scandinavian dishes.
The rest of the menu has variations on Niva’s specials, homemade pies and cookies. And they’re big on omelettes.
Remnants of the nice Greek décor remain from when this location was The Blue Parrot. Niva’s opened in 2011, and a few of the waitresses have been serving in this location for eighteen years. Victoria is routinely “in the trenches” with the waitresses serving up the food with lightening speed service.
Keep count of how many cups of coffee you’ve had if you want to sleep at night.
