Blink and you’ll miss it. Nook, a tiny biscuit bakery in the U-District, is barely noticeable from the street, is closed Monday and Tuesday, and usually sells out around noon on the days it is open. I wondered, was it worth the effort? I’m not even a huge fan of biscuits. The answer is a resounding yes. Nook, despite it’s hole-in-the-wall appearance, lives up to the hype. They offer freshly baked biscuit breakfast sandwiches covered in gravy, or plain with butter and jam:
The picture doesn’t even do it justice. This biscuit was the perfect amount of salty, buttery, flaky, sweet goodness. I want to cry just thinking about it. The jam was really good too. I ate this perfect little snack right there in the shop – they do have limited seating – while I examined my surroundings.
They really don’t serve much other than biscuits, so don’t bring your gluten-free health-conscious friend here (unless you’re trying to bring them back to the dark side). I wanted to try another variety, so I the special biscuit of the day to-go.
This is the Irish Soda and Currant biscuit, and it was still good the next day (when there was finally enough space in my tummy for it). Just heat it up, serve with butter, and you’ve got all the breakfast you’ll ever need!
