The Nook changing ownership


“Our owner jumped the gun and looks like sale isn’t going through. Thanks! “

Original post: Here is a message to you from owner chef Norbert Schulz of The Nook which opened at 120 Santa Barbara Street in the Funk Zone in May 2016:

To our beloved Santa Barbara community, it is time that we announce with heavy hearts that our little Nook has sold.

We are heading into our last two weeks of ownership before we transition to the next chapter, as we cannot predict the future, what we do know is that the new owner will be keeping the doors open and running the restaurant as is until transitioning into their own vision.

On that note, we would love to see all of our regulars within the next two weeks, to bid fair well, and recount the treasured memories we’ve made in the last 4.5 years! We also want to thank this amazing community for all of the support we’ve received through natural disasters, and pandemics, without all of you, we wouldn’t be here! So come on down, say hello, say goodbye, cheers a beer, and wish us well into our next endeavor!

Our chef’s daughter will be opening her own business Alessia Patisserie & Cafe [at 134 East Canon Perdido Street, formerly Sojourner Cafe] and we are so thrilled for her! You may be able to catch chef eating a croissant or poking around in the kitchen at the patisserie!

This is a “we’ll see you later” not a goodbye!
