Coffee and wine lovers have My Nook



People pick out the coffee they want as opposed to perusing a menu board.

All the cups cost the same between $1.50 to no more than $3 for an iced coffee drink.

“The experience I'm selling them is coming to My Nook as opposed to going to another location,” Allbrook said.

The spot's name was inspired by a Minneapolis, Minn. coffee shop called The Nook.

“It looked like a mini-lounge library, which I thought was so clever. I remember the first time I heard the word nook and after that I began to see it so much. That little name stuck,” he said.

Customers receive free Wi-Fi as well.

Allbrook and his wife run the lounge together.

A smaller, mom-and-pop operation has to work hard competing with an array of new and established businesses on North Columbia.

“In the south, folks get comfortable in their routine, so I think one of my new challenges is getting a genre of folks to think of me as their new favorite spot,” the My Nook owner said. “The other coffee shops have their regulars. My challenge is acquiring that over time, which I'm sure will come.”

Look for 'Finally Fridays' with live jazz from 6 to 9 p.m. coming soon to the café.
