Enjoy exceptional service and a friendly atmosphere at Nook. It's a wonderful spot for enjoying a delicious meal while catching up with old acquaintances over lunch. Nook is located just south of the Prima County Public Library on East Congress Street. It opened in 2015 and has become a trendy eatery that serves up New American cuisine. Owners Nikki and Matt Thompson along with Todd Anderson are fellow Tucsonans who love their community. Local artists have work showcased throughout this contemporary restaurant.

Nook also prides itself on serving up locally sourced food. Try the Godfather Benedict with prosciutto, arugula, poached egg hollandaise and balsamic drizzle for breakfast, or come down during lunch for a green corn tamale pie with cabbage salad. It offers take-out service and is open for breakfast and lunch during the week. This restaurant also serves brunch on Saturday and Sunday.

We enjoyed our brunch a lot (especially the scones). It was a bit noisy, not unexpected for a Saturday brunch.

We stumbled upon Nook as it was close to our hotel and one of the few restaurants open. It was excellent! We ended up eating breakfast here all three days we were in town. It served up great food, wonderful attentive servers, good menu choices and appropriate safety protocols. I especially appreciate the menu marking gluten-free options.

Went here with my fiancé’s family for a brunch on Sunday! The place was really cool and had a hip vibe! It was a little noisy while we were there but overall a good meal.

We went for breakfast on a Sunday morning. Everything was fantastic. We had Bloody Mary's, a breakfast burrito, eggs benedict and lox. Every bite of food was wonderful and the service was top-notch. We sat outside as a nice change of pace. It started to get pretty hot as we left so I am glad we arrived when we did. Thanks for a great meal.

What a pleasant surprise. I breakfast joint with creative cuisine! It is a cute little spot, the server was pretty busy but stayed on top of our needs. We had the tamale pie which was full of flavor and the steak with chimichurri and eggs, the meat was cooked perfectly and was tender and the chimi had a kick. They also have some nice baked goods. We will return when we are next in Tucson.

Great spot! I was a little hesitant because of the downtown location, but the decor and outdoor patio are fabulous. They offer a paperless menu (online via scanning QR code), and the staff wore masks as is the new norm. Had the avocado toast, with a side of bacon with a coffee and cookie to go.
Staff was friendly and accommodating - would definitely recommend stopping by here for a brunch with friends.

The dinner was exceptional. However, we were surprised to arrive to a set Valentines menu for $49. We were going to the theater for a concert and had trouble finding a restaurant as all were booked up or had set menus at $60 or more The Nook had a very reasonably priced dinner menu online and so we booked. There was nothing online about a fixed price menu. Apparently, the hostess called all bookings but I did not get a call. They should have had the fixed price menu online a week before the day!!!! The one entree on the menu was normally $15. So prices were definitely put up for Valentine’s Day. All that aside , the food was excellent!!!

The service was great, the food was awesome, the ambiance amazing!

When I let the server know I had a show, they made it so we got our food and we’re able to get to the theater on time.

The edamame was delicious and is only on the dinner menu … so when you get a chance, get it!

There was eight of us. The restaurant was well-decorated and the food was very unique. The menu wasn’t very descriptive of what the food was going to be like. There was unique twist to each meal. The service was OK. Not super friendly. The music was a bit off for the environment but overall I would probably eat there again.

There were only 3 tables with customers when we arrived. We thought that was odd because it was sat night and all the other restaurants just down the street were packed. When we left we were the only ones there. Very odd. The food was good. Service was very shaky at the start as we sat there for 15 min and no one approached our table being only 3 filled tables we thought that was odd too. The kid running the place recovered well and service was good after that. He asked us if we wanted desert and when we said what do you have. He said only cookies up at the front. Not sure what’s going on at this place but for the location and the food which was good why is no one was there. Like I said very odd.

First time dining at the Nook and were pleased with all of our meals. Only thing missing is a nightly special or two and maybe more than one choice for a soup. Hangar steak was cooked to perfection and portion was perfect for a small appetite. Caribbean Salmon was something different and very well cooked and flavorful. Loved the small dessert choices, cookies, lemon bars, etc. Having good coffee, espresso is a huge plus! Service was excellent!

I enjoyed Nook, and will definitely go back...especially when it's not raining because I want to site on that outdoor patio. Food great. Drinks great. Service was a bit slow. Even though we had reservations and there were several open tables, we were left standing at the hostess station for quite a few minutes, and then it took a while longer for our server to appear and then it took even longer for our appetizers to come out. Maybe they were shorthanded. Everything else was lovely. Good date-night place. Close to the Fox Theater and all of Downtown.
