Our story

Our joyrney so far

Nook Coffee Bar was founded in 2018 by three friends – Edward Kim, Chris Lee, and David Choi. Their shared passion for high-quality coffee and creating a welcoming space for the community drove them to open this specialty coffee shop. More than just a cafe, Nook strives to be a community hub where people can connect over their love of great coffee. Our warm and inviting space encourages you to linger, whether you’re meeting friends, getting work done, or simply taking a break from your busy day.
