Top Nosh started out selling homemade savory pies (similar to British pasties) at farmers’ markets around the Bay Area. At the café you can get the savory pies ($5.75 each, $5 frozen), freshly made salads, soup of the day, cookies, tarts, pastries, French toast, French omelettes and Intelligentsia coffee. The pastries are baked in house. Several pies sounded tempting: roasted butternut squash, spicy beef, wild mushroom & gruyere.
* Latte: Good foam art, made with care, deep flavor, bold and smooth
* Chicken pie with yogurt, almonds and Indian spices, aka the Moghul Mogul ($5.75): It’s small (more snack than meal size) but tasted fresher and better than say a Hot Pocket.The thin crust was similar to a pot pie crust and it was filled with chopped chicken and almonds (mostly chicken). The filling was on the skimpy side but very tasty. It came with a tiny cup of coleslaw. I enjoyed the crunch but thought it was a bit too sweet.
It’s a cute, sunny café, one that would be nice to hang out at with a laptop (they have free wi-fi, nice art on the walls, fresh flowers at each table).
Rustic European cottage chic themed. Magpie is a feminine oasis filled with pretty things like candles, soaps, lotions, comfortable clothing for lounging, pillows, perfumes (e.g., from Tokyo Milk), picture frames, blackboards, Bella Note bedding, cabinets, drinking glasses, rugs, jewelry, stationery, topiaries, and various signs. The merchandise is attractively displayed on tables and cabinets.
During my visit they were having a workshop on using chalk paint.
