Great brunch place!

Enjoyed a lovely brunch in this place! It is all hustle and bustle--but the staff is very friendly and very helpful. The "adult beverages" were fun and a nice surprise. Food was served quickly and came out very temperature despite how busy the place was!

I have been to Nosh many, many times, and this is why. Their food is so unique and unpretentious, that you can't help but love it. Not big on atmosphere, but huge on flavor...that's the key. I tried their savory french toast one time quite awhile ago and I was hooked. Now it's the only thing I ever order, and... More

What a wonderful breakfast spot. The menu was unique and inviting. Lacked a little bit in presentation, but it's breakfast food...how pretty can it get? Will definately try lunch.

love this place for breakfast, perfect brunch everything on the menu is far from ordinary. French toast with Angeline sauce, pears with a ginger taste, BLT with fresh bread, Crab cake Benedict is amazing! They always have great specials, yummy soups!

I found Nosh to be a great find while out with 4 of my little friends ages 5, 6, 8 & 10. The girls and I needed a little lunch before hitting the Chocolate Kitchen. The kids menu was perfect portions. ...Mac & Cheese, chocolate chip pancakes, sides of fruit and a flatbread for me. Wait staff was very accommodating.... More

Innovative breakfast fare in a hip urban environment. Lunch looks good too but I've never tried those menu items. To die for Bloody Mary's!

We visited Nosh for the second time today. The first time I was not particularly bowled over but we decided to give it another try. Second time was no better than the first. The service is good and they have great coffee. That said, the extensive menu is almost too much and as a result, I think the food suffers.... More

We had an excellent meal and excellent service at Nosh. I had eggs benedict Florentine. The food was fresh and home made. The sauce was delicious! It is rather small, so you may have to wait at peak times. There were some interesting items on the menu, which I would like to try. One was some sort of nachos over... More

Don't eat here if you are looking for a quiet relaxing lunch. Acoustics are terrible. Lunch was just ok. Some sandwiches better than others. The Monte Cristo special was awful, though, chewy chicken and some ham and cheese grilled between a white bun. Boring. The Beachcomber is a better choice. Homemade chips excellent, as well as ginger pears. I have... More

We walked in for lunch today, only to realize that the restaurant actually closes at 2:00. It was 5 minutes to 2. The server that greeted us was kind and said it was no problem. She was very pleasant the whole time we were there. The food was fresh, plentiful and the atmosphere pleasant. We would definitely return! I'd like... More
