My family really enjoyed our breakfast at Nook. We had great coffee, yummy yoghurt bowls, crunchy grilled cheese sandwiches and freshly cooked eggs with beans and mushrooms. Pleasant and relaxing experience. We will definitely be back.

The place sits elegantly in the heart of the city.. it has a special warm comfortable feeling plus the serving of delicious waffles served with fresh fruits makes you feel like you dont wanna leave :)

Eggplant sandwich was really good. Long black coffee hit the spot. Comfortable place to sit and listen to music. Seats outside if you don’t fancy air condition. Friendly staff. Will be back.

This cafe is one of few places here offering decent western breakfast. Coffee is good. Convenient location (just a block away from Chinatown) and I really enjoy its relaxing atmosphere. Free wifi is available.

Hi, Our sincere apologies for the bad experience you had with us recently. Again, we admit that we were not at our best during the festive season. This happened during the recent Chinese New Year long weekend, when most shops around are closed. Although we...More
