The Nooks got us slightly hooked…

Where else is one to go on a Saturday afternoon with my oldest and dearest friend than for a delightful visit to the famous, Nook on the Square, Rugby.

The cafe was recently featured on primetime TV show – The Restaurant ManKate James and Alex Woodcock opened The Nook in January of this year, just a few months after filming the BBC Two programme . In the television show Russell Norman sees that the sisters have spotted a huge gap in the market in the quiet little village of Dunchurch.

Katie decided to turn the downstairs of her house into a cafe after seeing a gap in the market.  The Nook serves a simple menu which features  a variety of breakfasts including a hearty vegetarian, for lunch -there are homemade specials, seasonal soup and a cream tea served after 12pm.

After watching the programme I spent weeks dreaming about the famous square quiche (I really do have a thing about quiche am wondering if its my age!), it lived upto everything I had dreamed about it was out of this world and all homemade that morning! I went for the smoked salmon and asparagus quiche and my friend the goats cheese option – I definitely picked the winner!

The Nook has a strong square logo and is reflected subtly throughout everything even down to the food – the square quiches and the square scones.

The cafe itself could be the perfect set for a 1940′s movie.  The Nook ticks every vintage box with the mix and match of furniture, chandelers,  white washed walls, tea sets on marble fire places and quirky touches that make you feel at home yet still in a modern vintage tea room.   The atmosphere is lovely it’s the perfect place to spend an afternoon with an old friend, the food is great and the service is friendly.

Now all I need to do is find out how to make those quiches am totally hooked!
