Nosh Restaurant Review

: Far west suburban Geneva has seen a dining boon of sorts, and its residents (and those willing to travel) are all the better for it. This quaint, mod morning and lunch spot is just the sort every town wishes it had. Settle into the spacey-cool eatery for hot chocolate french toast or a one-eyed Susan (an egg-in-a-hole take on grilled cheese); Benedicts of many stripes; or a tasty take on chilaquiles. Wash it all down with fresh-squeezed orange-berry juice or something hard, like a raspberry-pear mimosa. As the day wears on, you’ll get to tackle the likes of cream of jalapeño soup or a mushroom cake wrap with fries.
