I just randomly stopped in. Sat at the counter. Great group of girls working there. Attentive with your service and refilled my coffee as I like it. This is the 1st place I've been to where they asked how I liked my potatoes and hash cooked. Where as you usually have to request how you like it. The only thing... More

Honestly, I don't know where to start, The environment has a quaint, small town vibe when you're inside. It makes for a fresh, home cooked meal type of feel. The food is delicious! Every time I go, I try something different and I have never been disappointed. The toast, is amazing! (I know, you're thinking, its toast. How could that... More

Stopped in on a road trip for a late breakfast. Greeted by very friendly staff who went out of their way for us and a large party seated next to us. Blueberry pancakes very good and hit the spot. Would stop in again if I were in the area for breakfast or lunch.

Portions are huge! Quality of the food, excellent! Best grilled cheese (better than that "cheese shop" in New Haven) salad so so fresh. We eat at the Nook at least once a week. The staff are very friendly and strive to make things right

Excellent food..tiny cafe style..don't judge a book by its cover. I had the risotto pumpkin pancake special which was delicious but I couldn't eat it all. Large portions..presented very well. Waitresses friendly and very attentive. LOVED it!!!

Delicious food, good service. Very busy on the weekend. Get there early. The only negative is that the rooms are too "live." At busy times, it's hard to hear each other. Still worth it. Love the garden omelet and the lemon ricotta pancakes.

Wow!!! Bring your appetite! We were first time visitors and can't wait to go back. Everything we had was off the charts. Service was amazing and friendly. The staff makes everyone feel welcome and it is clear that they know their customers. We felt like family when we left! Portions were huge and we were even given complementary muffins that... More

The food is amazing and the service outstanding, but you lose one star for not having the a/c on or not cool enough. That's an easy fix, and your staff and customers will appreciate it, especially on hot days.
