Stopped in for breakfast and ordered eggs, sausage patties, crispy hash browns, and well toasted white toast. Server was right there with the coffee and took my order right away. Waited, waited, and waited for my breakfast and it finally arrived 25 minutes later. The place wasn't busy and can't understand the reason for the long delay and ended up... More

They have good food, many local favorites. Famous pies and they have take out pies and other baked goods. They are getting pricey, but they have specials. Service is always good.

The Norske Nook has good food but the pie is to die for. The service is good and the restaurant looks clean. The place reminds me of eating at grandmas house.

We stop in at Norske Nook in Hayward quite often. Started going to one in Rice Lake when we lived there. Very pleased to find one here when we moved to Hayward. Food is always hot and delicious. And the pies.....the best. Just like Mom's.

A bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich and cup of soup ... $9. Young waitress acted bored and disinterested in helping customers.

Went there with four guys on a rainy day when fishing wasn't in the cards. So we went PIE-TROLLING at the old Norske Nook. Both hostess and waitress recommended the peanut butter, but all but one of us went for Blueberry crunch. As we scanned the dining room for a defibrillator, we noticed that the clientele were all eating pie,... More

I am retired and had no small children with us. I was lucky enough to have had a very good piece of pie for breakfast.

Ordered open face pork sandwich with mashed potatoes. Real potatoes but no vegetables. Huge thick slices of white bread and gravy. Meat was a little dry, sandwich could have used more gravy. A side salad or some kind of veggie side would have been nice. Pies were good but whipped cream was not whipped cream, it was whipped topping. Lots... More

Reuben was good. Potato soup was good. Quiche was ok. Service was fine. Did not like Snickers pie, way too sweet, wasted $4.29. Did not think it was anything special.

You can have American food or Scandanavian food that you do not get at most restaurants. The wait staff was very pleasant and the food was delicious. A warning... the pies are WAY too good and you may want to eat more than your should.
