The Nook Cafe
The Maginhawa Street in Quezon City is a haven for food lovers. It is really popular because you’ll see a lot of food establishments from left to right along this busy street. The good thing is there’s really a lot to choose from. I think a day is not enough for you to try all of them. You’ll go crazy choosing where to start and what to try first. Fret not! Because I am sharing a wonderful place to pig out while having fun. Do you love Harry Potter series? Then, you’ll love this place – The Nook Cafe. 🙂
The Nook Cafe
The Nook Cafe is unique in a way that it incorporates some Harry Potter elements into their small but cozy cafe. It magically pulls you into a world of nostalgia and enchanting memories of teenage addiction to the world of witchcraft and wizardry. Getting here isn’t really that hard as it is located at 164 A Maginhawa Street, Sikatuna Village.
Small But Cozy
When I stepped in, I didn’t think that the place is small. I think it can cater for around 10 to 15 persons only. On the second floor, you’ll see more of Harry Potter books and other non-fictional stuff. They also have board games that you can borrow to level up your dining experience.
Costumes For Rent
One of the most amazing experiences here is to make yourself an instant Hogwarts student. Something that we’ve all dreamed of someday became reality in a short while. Just present your ID to rent the costumes and wands. Isn’t that cool?! 🙂
The Food And The Intriguing Butter Beer
Okay, so all of us have been waiting for the food. This is going to be the main event and we were excited to try them out. For starters, they offer coffee beverages, pastries, finger food & pasta. Not a heavy meal you think but, the serving may take your tummy full.
Nook Overload – 220
Sausage on a bun topped with loads of fries, ketchup, and cheese. A truly overloaded meal because the sausage is extra in size. I must-buy especially if you love fries!
Bacon Wrapped Chicken – 160
As the name suggests, it is a chicken fillet wrapped in crispy bacon with honey. One of their best-sellers. The taste was beyond my expectation. I can say that this is my personal favorite. 🙂
Cheese Potato Fries – 110
Thick-cut fried sweet potatoes drizzled with parmesan cheese and cheese sauce. A somewhat complex combination that resulted to a unique blend of sweet & salty taste.
Spicy Spanish Sardines Pasta – 150
One of their best-sellers in the pasta section. I am a fan of Spanish sardines and have tasted a few pasta dishes with this delicacy. Indeed, it tastes great. The spiciness is tolerable and the saltiness of the sardines goes well with other food that we ordered.
Butterbeer – Harry’s 100 | Hagrid’s 150
The most interesting of them all. It is a non-alcoholic beverage and is a perfect combination to whatever you would eat. It is simply a butterscotch drink with a mild sweetness inspired by J.K. Rowling’s wizarding world.
It was indeed a wonderful experience. The unique experience is all worth it. We’ve been planning to visit here a long time ago, and finally, we’re here! I’ll definitely go back to this place soon and invite another circle of friends. The butterbeer is just awesome and a must-try. I just hope that they’ll get a more spacious place because it’s hard when you have a lot of customers and the place becomes constricted and noisy if the other table is not considerate enough. But, overall, thumbs up!
