NOPA: Brunch

A nice perk working adjacent to NOPA, one of the best places to grab a bit to eat in SF, is knowing the super friendly staff that works there. Luckily, I was able to score brunch reservations on Father’s Day the day before. My father and I biked across town together and then shared a wonderful meal together. We sampled many of the menu items including NOPA’s famous Custard French Toast. Half of a half order of this saccharine toast, soaked in milk, eggs, and butter was enough to capture the essence of this dreamy brunch item. 

NOPA does not make a conventional brunch with scrambled eggs and hash browns. We shared two unique savory dishes.

Homemade bagel with smoked trout, picked onion and Dill Farmer’s Cheese.

Both of these dishes perfectly countered-balance the sweetness of the french toast and rounded off our noteworthy Father’s Day Brunch.
