The Nook Neighborhood Bistro

My significant other likes to eat breakfast out especially on Saturday.  We decided to try the new restaurant that opened in Puck’s Alley (1035 University Avenue) at the former location of Kiss My Grits. We arrived there at ~10:30 which is closer to brunch. The Nook is quaint and has a nice rustic feel.

The restaurant had quite a few tables open when we arrived so we were seated right away. My SO ordered the “Eggs Anyway” and I ordered the mochiko chicken and waffles.

My SO had scrambled eggs, bacon, potatoes, and a slice of toast. He said that the eggs were good but the bacon could have been cooked longer and been more crispy. He liked the in-house pineapple jam/spread.

My waffle and chicken were quite good and filling. The chicken was fried and had a mild flavor. Nothing fancy. I’d like to try something else next time.

When asked if he would like to eat at The Nook again my SO said that he would. Service is a bit slow but friendly. The restaurant is a still a bit warm, remnant of Kiss My Grits days. However, we were told that The Nook is in the process of adding another air conditioner which would make it more cooler and pleasant.

Total with tax and tip for breakfast without drinks was $25. That’s not inexpensive but worth a try. The Nook is open Tuesday – Sunday 7 a.m – 3 p.m. Call 942-2222 for reservations.
