The Nook – San Pedro

January 19, 2020

After church, we usually go out for Brunch. Most times, Mike and his family join us, but they were visiting another church in La Habra. We thought we might have to go over to Long Beach to see Paula’s Mom but found out that she was okay.

So we decided to take the opportunity to try a new restaurant called “The Nook” formerly known as the Gaffey Street Diner. The Nook is located at 247 N Gaffey Street. We had stopped eating at the Gaffey Street Diner because of service and quality issues. We had been mostly sending our Sunday morning business to the Pacific Diner.

There is an additional “Nook” restaurant in Torrance at 2169 Pacific Coast Hwy.

So we gave it a try. The interior had been completely redone with new wallpaper and new booths and tables. The wall paper is sort of a stylized view of Los Angeles, San Pedro and Long Beach. Kind of neat.

So service was pretty good. The place was about 1/3 full which thought was pretty good for Sunday at 1pm. We sat at a table for two and ordered coffee and water. Most of the time I order bacon and eggs. So often that our usual waitress calls me “Bacon and Eggs”. But today, I decided to try their tuna melt. Paula ordered the Eggs Benedict.

Paula asked for the fruit cup instead of home fries, but she forgot to tell the waitress “no cantelope or melon”. When I get the tuna melt, I usually only eat half and take the rest home for lunch on Monday.

One final thing. They managed to find an artist to do a mural on the side of the building next to the parking lot. Their logo is a smiling fried egg. Kind of cute. The old mural was of Guy Fieri from a review done by him for his food network show “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives” a long time ago.
