North Light Brings Books, Records and Cafe Fare to Oakland
March 15, 2019
When you want to grab a cup of coffee, a cocktail, or a new book, you can do all three at North Light. The newly opened establishment wears many hats: cafe, bar, book and record shop. The vibe you’ll experience when you visit really just depends on the time of day that you decide to stop by.
In the morning, the kitchen and bar focus on breakfast bites and coffee. Grab an English muffin smothered with date butter or pepper jelly, or try the avocado toast topped with radish, arugula, sesame seeds, and charred lemon. Pair your fare with a cup of coffee or a specialty soda, like the lavender matcha. Later in the day, enjoy a cocktail such as the Young American, a blend of Campari, lemon, vermouth, Benedictine, and tonic. The cocktails go well with snacks and plates like Gulf shrimp with black garlic aioli.
