The Cafe at Nova

The Cafe at Nova The Cafe at Nova promotes healthy, whole food cuisine through seasonal breakfast & lunch menus.

With a firm belief that proper diet and nutrition are at the helm of disease prevention and optimizing health, Dr. Grace Keenan opened The Cafe at Nova in April 2014. It was designed to support Nova’s mission to promote optimal health through the education and promotion of healthy, whole food cuisine.

The café offers quick, flavorful, healthy lunch alternatives made with fresh, organic, whole foods to Nova’s employees, patients, and the Loudoun County community. Catering services and healthy cooking demonstrations were added to complement Nova’s suite of workplace wellness offerings to help local employers support and promote a culture of wellness within their workforce.
