Considering the mediocre fare served at this mini-chain’s other outposts, it’s not surprising that its first attempt at a robust dinner menu is underwhelming. Offerings seem to be aimed at pleasing as many people as possible—pot roast, beef Stroganoff, roast chicken, burgers, wraps—while exciting no one. Its one surprise, an array of house-smoked barbecue options, disappoints due to a heavy hand with an overly sweet sauce. Bland, hotel-lobby-like decor matches the food, but there is one highlight: a light and creamy peanut-butter pie, the only dessert made in-house.

There are truly not enough good things to be said about Nookies! In the Edgewater neighborhood, there is no better place for a weekend brunch. All of the egg specialities feel fresh and different from one another, and the burgers are also a treat! There's also something special about their chai latte that just makes it go great with anything I pair it with. Their patio is also a solid, calm outdoor seating space in the warmer months!
