Have breakfast or brunch here. Eggs Benedict done right, corned beef hash, you name it. It's really good.

Great little hole in the wall place with a hip but laid back vibe. I had the crepes, my husband had French toast and our daughter had pancakes. All were delicious. High quality food and friendly staff. I would definitely go again.

Not a great experience. The pulled pork was not shredded pork but chunks of meat. The panini was more like toasted bread not pressed. Never received the glass I requested for my beer. The returned checks and credit cards were thrown in a pile in...the center of the table. Overall, a so so visit. We will find another place to try on our next visit to Geneva.More

Their lox and bagels are second to none! Love The Nosh! Inventive menu and veteran staff that really knows how to take care of the customer.

The food here was very tasty. I had a skillet in a bowl. My spouse had eggs and a bagel with cream cheese. The coffee was good. Our server, Leslie, did a great job. The restaurant is pretty busy, and the room got kind of...loud. Otherwise, we liked the restaurant.More

Nosh is my favorite place for breakfast in town and the lunch is also good. It is a little more modern than some of the diners which I also like but better than some of the other contenders (Buttermilk, Egg Harbor, etc..). The food is...always good, and I like the latin flairs they have on many of the dishes. It has the best bloody mary in town so if your are in the mood for that, come. Service is consistently good, not stellar but good enough. Plan to continue to frequent.More

Recently met a friend at Nosh, just north of State on third in Geneva. Great menu, consistent quality, fresh ingredients. Will be back soon!

Seemed too modern & sleek looking as we went in with 2 kids. Very gen X kind of population inside. But the food and service was excellent. we loved the food.

Had a decent brunch. Kids were happy. Not a detailed review this time. We have been back since then and also had a decent breakfast.

Not much to say about this place. Food was rather blah nothing worth going back for. Had a few interesting drinks on the menu. Kind of weird to have the floor carpeted. Seems not as sanitary. Server was very nice.

A pretty new location open after a long absence. As a long-time fan, I wanted to see how the move affected Nosh and unfortunately I cannot say it is better. Whle the venue is nice and a few of the staff servers came along, our...recent breakfast was not the same old Nosh experience. Our food was roughly the same as old location and certainly not better. The seating was tight where we were and the staff rushed and not particularly attentive because of this. Not inattentive, just rushed, overwhelmed.More

New location in Geneva- Saturday breakfast- we both had omelettes and sad to report they were the most bland/ worst of any option in Geneva or St Charles-our usual go to is Mother’s in St Charles that truly can’t be beat for quality/value/ options Nosh...only offers 1 option along with the omelette fruit or potato My potatoes were cold- Buttermilk in Geneva at least offers a pancake and potatoes or fruit- not cheap either Maybe other things are better?More

The address above is incorrect as Nosh has moved to Third Street across from Gia Mia, north of State St. The new location is quite modern and cold, not at all a comfy looking breakfast spot. I have been there twice now, the second time...to see if I would like it better than the first visit. It always seems to miss the mark. The menu is ok, has a Mexican flair to the offerings. Portions are ok, but I seem not to find the combination of foods that I am looking for for beakfast. Have not tried lunch there but the offerings are more tempting than breakfast. Seating is tight inside, a bit better in the bonus room. However, service out there is slow and not really friendly in my experience.More

Visited after hearing raves about the Bellinis for Sunday brunch. They were OK, but not wonderful. The food was good, but nothing outstanding. I agree with the comment that soundproofing needs to be done-it was very noisy and difficult to have a good conversation. Hopefully,...things will improve shortly.More

Our party of 4 liked everything we ordered. It's not a quiet restaurant but is certainly family friendly. The spiced chips that came with my sandwich were terrific. There is street parking as well as a parking lot. Service was good and efficient even on...a busy Sunday. They serve breakfast and lunch.More
