Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What is NomNom?
  2. NomNom is an online community designed to help you discover handcrafted meals from local startup food-makers. Not every aspiring chef has the resources to open their own physical restaurant. Our mission is to help talented food-makers share their passion for cooking with the people around them. All of our meals are made with love at certified commercial kitchens. Currently, we work within a pre-order and pick-up model. We have several pick-up locations around Oakland, but our main one is in uptown (24th & Broadway).

  3. Why do I have to order ahead?
  4. Our chefs cook their dishes in small batches and need to spend quality time preparing your meal. To minimize food waste, we ask that you order the night before.

  5. How do I pay?
  6. Payment is done via credit or debit card, and is conducted through a secure site. Your information is safe and will never be shared.

  7. Can I pay at the designated location listed?
  8. Unfortunately, the only payment option we currently have requires either a debit or credit card.

  9. What is your refund policy?
  10. If you need to cancel or modify an order, you can do so up to 24 hours before your pick-up time.

  11. Why do I have to create an account?
  12. Our team reaches out to customers through email to keep you updated on your meal(s).

  13. Do you deliver?
