i've been doing my best to spread the word about one of my favorite cafes in the South Bay, San Pedro to be exact! Nosh Cafe is a hidden gem that has lovely food, great ambiance and a staff that makes me smile. owner, susan mckenna, used to be co-owner of The Corner Store in san pedro. this was my first "taste" of a neighborhood market with speciality items from Australia (susan's country of origin) as well as experience her delightful style.
when she opened nosh, i was beyond happy to see her face again as well as buy my favorite drink i had been missing so much- iced soy vanilla latte (they use coffee ice cubes sans dilution!) brilliant. some other favorites @nosh are their curried chicken salad sandwich on freshly baked baguette, puy lentils with walnut dressing, veggie curry pie-think breakfast or lunch, roasted tomato and goat cheese quiche as well as their ever changing menu of fresh, seasonal food such as their outstanding soup of the day. (chilled fennel soup, butternut squash soup, vegan black bean chili w/ chipotle, minty chilled pea soup, strawberries and watermelon gazpacho...YUM)
today as i opened my latest copy of Los Angeles magazine, who was highlighted in the special about san pedro?! Nosh! but of course. so cheers to you for once again receiving a great review. so well deserved.
