Nice Breakfast / Lunch Place

I really like the atmosphere of Nosh. Talk is easy and the industrial chic décor is cute. The food does not live up to quite the atmosphere. For example I ordered a Panini. It was just a grilled sandwich on square bread like a grilled cheese. It had a few pieces of veggie on it but was nothing... read more

This is such a cute, down to Earth, local restaurant. Fresh food... nothing processed here. I have to say that I consider myself an Eggs Benedict Connoisseur and the ones hear are perfection. Cooked perfectly and the Hollandaise sauce is light and airy and very flavorful. The French toast will the lemon cream sauce is to die for. I could... More

We ate here because many of the reviews bragged about the great food. I will begin by saying that the food WAS good, but not especially exceptionable. The menu is unusual from the regular breakfast/lunch menus you will find. Most things looked pretty good. They have a parking lot, which is very handy in Geneva. It was full, but we... More

This place needs to find a larger space. The waiting area is too small and you end up standing on top of the diners as they eat their breakfast. The environment feels crowded and cramped. Although a very popular place, they need a larger space to accommodate their popularity. Food is good. A bit pricy, worth the money. Nothing is... More

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.
