We have bought a second house in our old neighbourhood of Wolseley. Two of our three kids were born in Wolseley before we moved across the river. One of the fun things about this process is discovering new neighbourhood haunts. Our first venture was for Sunday brunch and we decided on The Nook. The placed was jammed and we took that as a good sign.
The Nook has been there for eons and I have driven by on my route downtown thousands of times. It was my first visit inside and I was impressed by the comfy booths and rows of windows. The staff was so pleasant and helpful. They pour a great cup of coffee.
Parking is not plentiful and it was apparent by the comings and goings that people arrived at the diner on foot. So it was likely that we were surrounded by our new neighbours and were duly impressed.
Some of us were still in breakfast mode, while others choose from the lunch menu.
Mom #2 (my Mom-in-law) and I had the perfectly cooked easy over eggs with crispy hash browns (they couldn’t guarantee this from the kitchen since they were so swamped).
Daughter #3 ordered blueberry pancakes with a side of bacon and hash browns (that’s my girl!).
The guys had a Denver,
and a Burger and all were well-pleased with their choices.
