We had requested the patio - a shady table, so we had to wait a bit. Our service was pretty good at the beginning, but as usual, we had to ask for the bill and then wait for it to be processed☹️

I haven't been back for a long time and it was a very good experience to the outdoor setting of this restaurant.

We had to wait quite a bit but then the staff was nice enough to give a discount for the wait. And the egg Benedicts were among the best I have ever had (I would rate them second after Sarabeth NY). Also very cool outside space and top produce.

We visit Nook every time we go to Tucson. Their food is delicious and we like their options, which are not all your typical breakfast dishes. We felt comfortable with their handling of covid (spacing of tables, mask wearing, etc).

Throughly enjoyed our experience at the Nook. The food was wonderful, the service was top notch, they were busy but that didn’t change the detail or quality of the food at all. Everything came out perfectly cooked, presentation was beautiful. We will definitely be dining there again.

Wide variety of great offerings. Our party of four had different dishes, all tasty and generously sized. Service friendly and attentive. What a surprise to find an attractive patio, off street, downtown. Will return.

Very nice place for brunch - loved the Eggs Benedict and the Smashburger. Also, had a Mexican Candy Mimosa that was delicious and original. Would recommend.

Brunch entrees were remarkable and well priced. Getting a side of cinnamon roll griddlecakes to share for only 4 dollars is a deal you simply cannot pass up out to brunch with a friend or partner. Had the breakfast tamale pie and wife had the chickpea cake benedict. Incredible breakfast food doesn't just drown in grease.

We loved our brunch at Nook! We originally selected this restaurant based on the fact that it had an aesthetically pleasing and large outdoor patio dining area. The service was excellent and our food was delicious! The yogurt parfait, smashed hash and breakfast burrito were some of our favorites. We highly recommend this spot for brunch!

We never actually had a server. The hostess did her best, but it was too much to ask of her to seat everyone and end up being our server. I don't know if the restaurant was short-staffed or this is the norm. Also from seating to receiving food was 50 minutes. The food was excellent, so we would be willing to try again and hoping this was just a tough Sunday for them.

Came down from Phoenix for a day trip to Tucson. Looked online through the open table app and found this restaurant. When we arrived it was right in downtown and the restaurant had a Flagstaff vibe to it. There were paintings all over and had a collective ambiance. I ordered the bacon egg and cheese burger. The egg came sunny side up, the bacon was amazing so was the actual burger patty, it came with fries but you can choose smashed hash browns or a salad. The fries were just as good. Probably one of the best meals I have had. The service and staff were also amazing. Would definitely recommend it.

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.

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.
