Operating as a restaurant since 1953, The Nook features delicious daily specials on the Downtown Mall. With lots of comfort food, such as homemade twice-baked meatloaf, gourmet mac n’ cheese, sandwiches, and one of the city’s best milkshakes, this hole-in-the-wall restaurant is sure to satisfy any craving. Author John Grisham can often be seen here munching en plein air, evidence that Classics attract Classics.
