The nook is a smallish bit of a hangout place, where people eat well prepared and tasty food with some using using their laptops, some sipping at a glass of wine. It’s a pleasant place, amiable, in a non touristy area of Hyde. The menu...More

I really like this place, on a nice day (for SF) you can sit outside and sip your coffee or eat a sandwich. The coffees are expensive, though they are big. I go here fairly regularly and am always happily pleased but I do feel...More

Coffee and nibbles during the day and a candle lit wine bar at night. Great place for a quick bite during the day....helpful staff, inside and outside seating, number of singles sitting and working away. We had sandwiches for lunch...wide choice.

A nice little hole in the wall to duck in and enjoy a good cup of coffee on a rainy afternoon. The sandwhiches looked good, so we decided to have lunch too. We both expected a little more flavor, but overall good.

After a climb up an down chinatown, this little treat, is a great spot for a rest and a coffee, and perhaps a sandwich. Loads of local with laptops, working, studying or even dating? Take it all in over freshly brewed coffee.

My mom and I ran into The Nook when we were exploring San Francisco, wonderful breakfast but was not impressed with our coffee drinks... She had a hot chocolate and I had a chai tea and they both tasted more like water than our drinks.

Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the
city and is home to amazing architecture and views.
The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for
those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be
rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful
architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated
with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all
were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that
