Brunch on Saturday was so good that we went back Sunday with some friends. We ate outside both mornings; the patio is great- it's in the middle of the walking mall and covered by trees. The food was great both mornings, but on Sunday morning the service was incredibly slow. I'm not sure if they were short on staff, but... More

This place has been in business since the late 50's and the sandwich's we had for lunch is an example of rest of their menu then there is the reason they have been successful.

Our table had the reuben, open face roast beef sandwich, breakfast dish, brats, hot turkey sandwich and all... More

Ate breakfast with a couple colleagues. The food was good. The menu is pretty diverse and you can get breakfast any time of day. The waitress did a good job and was very attentive and friendly.

Basic fare prepared excellently. My pork chops were tender and moist and the brocolli was perfect. The salad and dressing were also fresh and tasty. My wife also thought here meal was excellent. We ate outside on the Mall; the service was excellent. We also ate a breakfast at the Nook; it was outstanding. The value was good for both... More

It was nice to be able to sit outside under the trees or inside, we sat outside & it was a nice cool evening. Food was good, not exceptional but diner kind of food, service was good too. I had fish and chips & it was so so.

This was in downtown and we went to go to a Mexican restaurant but it was closed. We walked the mall downtown and looked first every place was busy so we decided to go nice and simple. We chose to sit outside and really enjoyed that! I had fish and chips and hubby had veggie burger. All was very good.... More

The Nook is well located on the pedestrian mall in Charlottesville, It has the charm of a local diner and delicious and unique breakfast fare. Open all day, 7 days a week, we chose to have a leisurely breakfast here. Where else do you find cinnamon toast on the menu. Omelets are great; eggs benedict were over the top. Great... More

Ate at The Nook on Sunday, August 31st, 2014. Retro diner in operation since 1951! What a terrific place for a delicious late lunch /early dinner on a summer afternoon in the downtown Charlottesville pedestrian mall. Eat inside in AC or outdoors under the shade trees. We chose inside due to the humidity when we arrived at 3 PM. Two... More

My family stopped here on our way home to Chicago. The outside seating looked tempting, but we decided on a table inside. I had the bananas foster waffles and my son had the bananas foster pancakes - both were excellent. (I've had bananas foster at Brennan's in New Orleans, and I'm pretty picky about it.) My youngest had the eggy... More
