We had very good service and the food was delicious. Not a huge selection but probably something for almost anyone. I would probably call it comfort food. Great value given the amount and quality of food for the price. We went for lunch but their breakfasts sound wonderful, so we plan to return for that.

Interesting decor and the floor is original in amazing condition. Really nice waitress. I had the crab cakes and two of them were huge. My guy had a hot dog and he liked it. After eating there we saw other places on the mall that looked better so make sure you really shop around

What a big mistake. We arrived after the lunchtime rush but the service was terrible. We had to flag down a server to find out who was assigned our table. Finally, we were waited on by a very uninterested server. We knew we were in trouble when he sat down to eat his meal after taking our order! I had... More

There is usually a line out the door on the weekends. We put our name in and went next door to the coffee shop to have a coffee since the wait was about 40 minutes. The host actually came next door and got us when out table was ready. Such really nice people! Service was great. The food is delicious.... More

My husband and I ate breakfast here while visiting Charlottesville and staying at the nearby Omni. Within easy walking distance, it offered a much more reasonably priced breakfast served by friendly staff.

Enjoyed our meal after the football game. Some had breakfast for dinner. Good omelette with tomato and basil. Cheerwine in a glass bottle! Friendly owner/manager and host. Server was a bit overwhelmed.

This is a casual restaurant with a varied menu and very reasonable prices.There was a page devoted to ten different versions of macaroni and cheese.The service was great! We loved it and will eat there again next time we are in Charlottesville.

The Nook is a quaint little breakfast place located in the Charlottesville Downtown Mall. We had a choice of sitting outside in the courtyard area under the trees or inside which looked rather diner-esque. Seating outside was lovely, service was prompt, and food was memorable. I chose the corned beef hash omelette which was delicious. The corned beef is tucked... More
