Since 2014 The nook, co-owned by Anicea Campanale and Hailey Berkey, has continuously been recognized as a great addition to the Honolulu food scene with awards such as the Critic’s Choice I’lima Award for Best Casual Restaurant in 2015, as well as the Hawaii Green Business Award presented by Governor Ige.
2014以来、Anicea CampanaleとHailey Berkeyの「The Nook」はホノルルの食の情景に大きなプラスだと承認され、
We stopped by to grab a quick lunch and were pleasantly surprised how lively it was. With plenty of people but a few open seats outside it was an easy place to grab a relaxing lunch.
Prices ranged from $11-16 with most dishes in the $14 range, not cheap but well worth it in terms of ingredients.
Their selection of tea is exciting, with some pretty interesting blends that are both delicious and healthy.
We ordered the Citrus Shrimp salad that was topped with some delicious grilled Kauai Shrimp and fresh mild Goat Cheese ($14).
As well as the The Club which was a delicious jidori chicken sandwich with bacon ($13). Both were absolutely delicious!
For tea, we ordered the Chai Me ($3) which is a Rooibos base, with star anise and cocao nobs. As well as the SexPot ($3) which is a green tea base with orange peel and elderflower. These can only be ordered hot but are delicious. They also have a Daily Iced Tea for $3 or you can order a pot of tea for $6.50.
We were very happy to get to try out The Nook and it really does live up to its I’lima Award as well as it being a great little spot to have lunch.
