I love this little place in down town San Pedro called Nosh Cafe. The staff is very friendly, the food is always good, and solid. The owner Susan in always there and on hand.
It is no secret to those who know me that my love for San Pedro didn’t develop at first sight, second sight, or 10th sight for that matter. It wasn’t until I moved here that I realized what this little city is all about. I love the fact that it is multi-ethnic, there are a bunch of cool artists that live and have galleries here, it is not soaked with corporate restaurants and shops (well not yet, but that’s a whole other post and frankly that I have plenty to say about), you will find lot of independently owned and operated shops, and there is a huge sense of community.
Nosh cafe is one of those small businesses where you will walk in and find the owner working behind the counter. She will be either the person who will take your order or even bring your food to your table. J and I have been very much into spending our money in town and contributing to the local economy, especially those independently owned.
Last week we went to Nosh Cafe once again for breakfast. The night before I had read in the paper that the front windows of the shop had been broken by vandals. Well this is no surprise in down town Pedro, yes, we have some serious issues in this area about stuff like this. But seriously, there is no need to break the window of this woman’s restaurant which she has only opened for less than a year. Things like this add to the expenses– it is hard enough for a new business to survive and this is the last thing that she needs.
But anyway, the point was I was on a mission to go and support Susan and of course have a wonderful breakfast. I took these pictures the last time we went there. I had a fantastic croissant with brown sugar bacon and egg, and J had a YUMMY Nutella and banana breakfast wrap. You can then sit and eat your food while reading the paper or listening to your ipod. Life can’t get better than this! Oh I almost forgot, they make their own croissant; I almost died when I heard that…and it is sooooooo good! Seriously, I don’t remember the last time I went to a restaurant where they made their own croissants!
If you are in the area please be sure to stop by for either breakfast or lunch!
