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.

    I had a great experience. We had a reservation and only had to wait 5 minutes for them to clean the table. I know the time of the restaurant was busy, but I felt the food took a little too long to come out.

    The food was very good and I would go again to try something else. It’s a pretty small place so expect a wait. We made a reservation and wanted to sit outside but with predicted rain, it was a smart decision to seat us inside. Nice place downtown.

    Loved the creativity in the dishes and for the most part, portion sizes were just right. Still a bit noisy from my taste and tables a bit too close to each other.

    There’s no area for waiting so people are crowded in the doorway. I was required to wait for the other person in my reservation. When she arrived we were seated immediately. Our table was right in the traffic area for guests to go to the outside dining area. It made it quite disruptive. Service had a slow start but ended well. The food was very good, excellent presentation with great flavors and textures. Great value! I will definitely go back. I’d like to try the outdoor seating.

    Slow service but Nice ambience and food selection. Everyone was very friendly but we waited Day long to be seen, and then for the food to come. We had to ask servers three times to get a refill of coffee.

    The food was really excellent, so I will be giving this spot another chance. Unfortunately the kitchen was SO slow. It took an hour to get our food. 2 of the 3 dishes came out after an hour. We had to wait an additional 10 minutes to get our side of pancakes. That seemed unnecessary and due to poor planning. They were fairly busy with a decent brunch crowd, but I go out for brunch often and other places don’t have the same delays with the same or busier dining rooms. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. The bathroom needed to be tidied up and the trash was completely full. Since the food was amazing and the staff was nice I’ll be back, but I would hope to have a shorter wait time for food and a cleaner bathroom.

    I was super excited to eat here but when we got there it wasn’t what I expected. I had a reservation but they stuck us in the back corner of the restaurant and it just felt as if we were walk-ins. The service was okay. It wasn’t bad but it wasn’t outstanding. I assume they were understaffed or at least seemed to be understaffed so I really don’t think it’s fair to blame the server for the subpar service we received. We waited around 40 min to get out food (we were a party of 4) and when we got it, the food wasn’t really anything special. Overall, I don’t think I will be coming back. I was really bummed out with how poor my experience was because I was really looking forward to it a lot.

    Food is awesome, the servers are great the hostess was a little put out when we asked to be moved in side when we realized the outdoor patio had no misters or anything to cool the temps down from 100 degrees. She was a little vocal about her displeasure with the ask! The rest of the service saved the review!!! Highly recommend and enjoy the experience!

    Reserved a table ahead of time and got sat right away even though we were about 20 minutes early. Food was fantastic. Our party had both cold and hot coffee, both were delicious. The Mexican Candy Mimosa was to die for, and the Hawaii mimosa was great as well. Only downside was the service was a little slow, even for a non pushy person like me, and our waiter kept disappearing for long periods at a time. But the food made it worth it and will definitely be back.

    Had brunch for our 9 year anniversary at nook & this place was hands down the most enjoyable experience we have ever had at a restaurant. The hostess was so kind and attentive & then our server was so helpful & kind & honestly made our whole time enjoyable. My hubby had an issue with parking & our sever comp his AMAZING “drunk tomato” (Bloody Mary) & for him to be so kind as to comp his drink, that was just awesome. I’m sorry I can not remember his name but no doubt you’ll get an amazing server, whoever helps you. I have recommend this place to everyone I know & I will for sure be coming back asap! Best anniversary to date ❤️

    I made a reservation for 11:30 Jan. 1 the day before, however we (4 of us) still had to wait approximately 20 min to be seated. The food and server were excellent, however, because we were seated next to the kitchen, clanging plates and other ambient noise made it difficult to have a conversation.
