“Food and service”
Reviewed October 15, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Excellent service and food. Hospitable and warm feeling in a very neighborly environment. Great place for weekend brunch and have a relaxed meal. Coffee and dessert topped it off with excellent pies and soup and salad.

“Very good salads , soups, and pastry pies-if you can handle gluten”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Fresh, thoughtfully prepared food on most days. When the owner (middle-aged woman) is there, things are always prepared perfectly. On rare occasion I have a salad that isn't quite as precious--but is still good. My only complaint with this place is that many of their soups have gluten, which seems unnecessary if you are making them from scratch--if you are using a base, I understand this, but I had the impression they didn't do this, so why not use something else to thicken, rather than flour? I must say, several of the staff I've spoken to have been helpful in figuring out whether gluten was in something, but the owner's son seemed to have a dismissive attitude one time when I saw a staff person ask him about a particular soup. That's just not cool. They don't havae many alternatives for celiacs, etc--no alternative pies, no alternative morning pastries. So, though I do love their salads and the occasional soup I can eat--it's not a great choice and since having to avoid gluten, I find I've almost given up this place. But for the rest of you, go for it--it's really good. And great , fantastically brewed coffees.

“Yummy coffee!”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

You can't get better coffee than the coffee served here! The salads, meat pies and desserts are very good, too. Service is also excellent!

“Best coffee if willow glen”
Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

Top nosh is fantastic place for a coffee or breakfast on the weekends. The waffles are especially good with fresh fruit and also the gourmet pies they make locally.

And did I mention the best coffee in willow glen?
