Carolyne Rohrig

FOR many years my palm trees were home to barn owls. At night I could see them looking down at me, with moonlight in their eyes. We got to be friends. I’d look up and they’d look down and screech. I’d screech back. We had some great conversations.

Absinthe 5/13/2013
Before you go to the opera and the ballet have a bite at Absinthe. The Croque Monsieur is a toasty delight filled with Black Forest ham, Gruyere, Dijon mustard, and bechamel. The Cheddar grilled cheese is not your mother's recipe, but is filled with pickled red onion, jalapeno-sun-dried tomato jam, and go ahead, add bacon for that extra zing. The cocktails are delicious. The decor is tres French. And you'll be off to an amazing start before the show.
NOPA 5/13/2013
Nopa's Custard French Toast is so spectacular you'll want to skip the main course and go straight for that. A full order is plenty for two people, or just you if you don't want to share. Believe me you won't. It comes bathed in warm butter, grilled kumquat slices and drizzled with warm syrup with a hint of orange. Other items on the brunch menu include the wood grilled garlic sausage, slow cooked pork, and the grass fed burger. The cocktails are gems. And they serve Blue Bottle Coffee. Nopa is a palate explosion on Divisadero.
Morning Glory 5/10/2013
I liked Morning Glory the minute I set foot inside the doors and read the haiku by Basho on the wall. Then came my breakfast which was sensational! I ordered the Applewood Smoked Bacon Omelet with caramelized onions, and Fontina cheese. The coffee was delicious, too! The server was courteous and friendly and the atmosphere was cheery and bright. A perfect spot to write haiku and see thespians stop by for a bite.
