Nopa
Neighborhood
Western Addition/NOPA

Oft-cited as the best in SF, Nopa's brunch is a can't-miss. And at a restaurant best-known for its late night dining, it's somewhat surprising too. Here you'll find a stellar menu of sweet and savory brunch items, served alongside Blue Bottle coffee.

Plus, at brunch you can the avoid the hour-long waits Nopa is also (in)famous for.

History Lesson

Housed in a converted bank, Nopa’s wine-storage is a no-brainer: the old bank vault stays an ideal 56 degrees Fahrenheit.

What to Order

"Pan de mie French toast and the house coffee, Blue Bottle's Three Africans."

7x7 Magazine

Simple and seasonal with a flair for the decadent, NOPA brunch is worth the scramble to land a reservation or wait for a table. Flavors are rich, but always inventive and well balanced; butter-basted farm eggs pair with sweet-tart caponata, and chicken-sweetbread sausage comes on a base of nutty farro. Whatever you do, don't skip the Custard French Toast — you'll die happy and never order sad, sandwich bread French toast again. Rustic and inviting, NOPA is a rare spot that's both worthy of a special occasion and friendly enough for a stop in on a sleepy weekend morning.

In Nopa's style, almost everything — down to the butter — is made in-house. Smoked trout is marinated in beer, brown sugar, and salt. French toast is made from days-old pan de mie and pampered with a long soak in custard before being seared to a crisp and topped with oozing roasted strawberries and lemon butter.

Little extras, like hot sauce, are brought over from sister restaurant Nopalito. Tap into the fringe benefits too. Libations concocted for morning drinking include our favorite: an orange blossom–scented Ramos gin fizz that drinks dangerouly like a cold glass of frothy milk.
