Nonnah's is known for its variety of desserts and drinks. Images obtained from Facebook business page.

It was announced Monday afternoon that the popular dinner and dessert spot, Nonnah's, will be closing. The restaurant is located at 923 Gervais St., and has been a staple in Columbia for 23 years. 

In a post on the Nonnah's Facebook business page, a representative did not provide a reason for the closure, and noted that it is difficult to say goodbye, but "it is time." 

The post continues:

We are so grateful for our loyal and supportive customers. Thank you for letting us be a part of your first dates, engagements, bridal showers, rehearsal dinners, weddings, receptions, birthdays, graduations baby showers and more. We are so honored that we could be a part of your stories.

It has been an incredible journey. We have so many great memories, have had so many amazing employees and met so many good people. We are forever grateful to all of the incredibly talented local artists who have made our space so beautiful.

We remain humbled that after 23 years you continued to vote for us as “Your Best”. We have watched the Vista grow and change and are so proud to have been a part of it. It’s now time for us to enjoy this incredible city.

If you reserved space for a private party, we will be contacting you shortly with alternate arrangements.

We will miss you.

Cola Daily has made several attempts to contact the restaurant. As of Monday at 6:15 p.m., during normal operating hours, there was no answer. The opportunity to provide a comment has been extended via voicemail. The messaging ability on Nonnah's Facebook page has been deactivated. Any additional information or reasoning behind the closure will be updated when received. No exact closing date was mentioned.
