Upscale decor for diner food

Finding a place for breakfast on a Sat. morning is a chore. This place did have open seats even if there was a Farmer's Market nearby making parking difficult. There was a Special menu as well as regular fare. Far too much to read through it all. I had luke-warm fusilli with fresh broccoli... read more

On a recent visit with relatives in Charlottesville VA, we strolled along downtown and had lunch at the Nook. My sister and I shared a Reuben and a Crab cake sandwich.The others got the Veggie Wrap with egg, and a Crab Cake Sandwich. Everyone really enjoyed their lunch. The Reuben was excellent - not fatty at all. The crab cake... More

We were a party of 8 with 5 teens and 3 adults. We had an early dinner there. It was a good price for good food! They let us recharge our cell phones as we had been out all day and were still planning a tour that evening. We came back later to kill some time before our tour and... More

This place was very nice, great atmosphere and right downtown. It's a diner, but they had pretty much anything you'd want to eat. The food was excellent. The service was good and we definitely would eat here again.

Old time breakfast place tucked in between trending stores on the downtown mall. Even if you have to wait - it is worth it. Excellent breakfast food. We try to eat here on Sunday mornings when we are in town.

The Nook on the Historic Mall is all about the Mac & Cheese. There were so many unusual flavor variations! I had a great omelet and one of my friends had a salad, all good. Another friend had one of the Mac & Cheese selections and declared it a success. The restaurant is open all day, so lots of menu... More

We were in Charlottesville for the evening and wanted to find a local eatery. We were told we needed to go to the downtown area, but we were not aware it was such as maze. After a series of twists and turns, we arrived at a mall area. we walked in a light mist looking at the various store fronts... More

We visited the Nook for breakfast. It's a diner with good food and a nice outdoor eating location on the pedestrian mall in downtown Charlottesville. I had bacon and sweet potato hash - both very good. I think they're open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Food was delicious and they had a wonderful variety of burgers, steaks and salads. The outdoor atmosphere under the trees on the Sunday morning was a treat. It was not noisy and fun to watch people as they were walking by.

Located in he Pedestrian Mall. The food was great. I like the decor and the service was great. It is a little pricey but consider it fair because everything was so good. There is outside seating for the nice weather days.
