I will not be returning to The Nook. One staff member in particular was extremely rude and the drinks were mediocre at best. Over priced. There are many lovely coffee shops in the area. This is not one of them.

We are a Coffee Shop & Lounge in the North End Halifax. Located on a rapidly developing south end of Gottingen St, we are fresh, cozy, and unique, with an atmospheric fusion of rustic and modern. Here you can enjoy a pint of Propeller microbrew or a mug of locally-roasted Laughing Whale espresso, relax on a couch or a floor cushion and read a book, catch up with friends, or meet a colleague.
