Creole Creed

Creole food pops up at Plum Bar

Oakland-based catering company Creole Creed is now at Plum Bar as part of the guest chef residency series at Daniel Patterson’s Oakland restaurant. Mother-daughter entrepreneurs Tekia Anderson and Queen Nefertiti Shabazz are serving Lousiana-Creole cuisine like a pork chop and yams, and étouffée with shrimp and crawfish through the end of October. They’re also offering brunch; check here for hours.

New brunch treats in Potrero Hill

Is Potrero Hill now the brunch capital of SF? No, of course not: That’s still the Mission where hangovers and brunch lines live together in perfect harmony. Regardless, the neighborhood just received another morning option in Cracked & Battered, which, as the name might suggest, focuses on eggs and fried chicken. There’s also a lovely sounding selection of plates like shakshouka, and nasi goreng, Indonesian cabbage fried rice topped with two eggs and fried chicken.

Ohlone food will be served at a new Berkeley cafe

The East Bay’s first and most local cuisine will soon be served at a new cafe in Berkeley run by members of the Muwekma Ohlone tribe. Cafe Ohlone by Mak-‘amham will open on the back patio of University Press Books on Bancroft Way, serving only “pre-colonial, pre-contact foods,” much of which will come from locally-foraged ingredients. Read more about it on Berkeleyside.

Brunch at the Alembic just got way more French

Lovely French bakery Le Marais will pop up for brunch at the Alembic for an entire month, simultaneously debuting a new Le Marais French Roast from Verve Coffee Roasters and serving avocado toast on croissants, eggs Benedict and more. There’ll also be a bakery pop-up at the the Bindery bookshop down the street (also owned by Alembic co-owner Christin Evans), with coffee and pastries. Brunch at The Alembic will be served from 10 a.m. - 3:30 p.m., and coffee and pastries at The Bindery will be served from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. ​
