In the center of the city is the eclectic, culturally, ethnically and socially diverse neighborhood known as North Panhandle, aka NOPA. Bounded by Masonic, Divisadero, the neighborhood is undergoing a rebirth as newcomers discover a community where culture comes together in this urban mixing bowl.
It's a neighborhood that rewards entrepreneurs with large dreams and low budgets willing to take a gamble on new retail establishments, art galleries, coffee shops and restaurants. The eclectic energy of the neighborhood is expressed best in the blocks where tattoo parlors and day care centers do business next to old school barbershops, and tiny urban "parklets" provide plants and cafe seating.
The new crop of cafe's best capture the improvised, can-do spirit of the community: On the Corner Cafe sells coffee, on-the-premises baked pastries, and records; Mojo Bicycle Cafe proffers handmade drip coffee combined with a bike store and repair shop. The best Ethiopian food in the city can be found at funky Waziema. And there's upscale Nopa, serving simple rustic food in a swank setting. Nightlife is anchored by The Independent, a club that presents up and coming bands. There's a quarterly art walk celebrating the upstart galleries, and a weekly farmers market. As families are discovering the gritty charms of North Panhandle, the neighborhood association is actively forming meetings and playgroups for parents of toddlers.
