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 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.

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.
