If you’re looking for a place to hang, then having cocktails and mozzarella sticks at Nic’s is a good idea. They have drinks, from margaritas to red velvet milkshakes that pair especially well with their food.

If you’re the type who would rather take the food out and eat at home, Nic’s is also for you. All their food is easily packaged so you can reheat them the day after.

It still stays fresh.

Make sure to bring home their Wild Mushroom Pesto Pizza and Meat Lasagna, you surely won’t regret having it the next day (and the day after that). Another best in their menu is the Seafood Medley pasta with generous servings of shrimp and clams. (TIP: You can ask them to add a dash of truffle oil in your pasta for that added punch. They would happily oblige).

Of course, one cannot leave a Nic’s store without trying out their award-winning desserts. Their Peach Walnut Torte is the perfect balance of sweet and tanginess. Of course, if there’s any dessert worth giving up your diet over, it’s their Brownie Walnut Cluster. The texture is just the right amount of fudge and crunch.
