Second Sunday Brunch Bunch: Nova

I am going to take a break between the two Christmas posts to reminisce about our delicious January  brunch. This month, we visited Novaa fun little restaurant tucked away in Oak Cliff. 



It was a beautiful day, albeit a little chilly, so we sat on the large, covered patio. 

Due to the lovely baby boy currently growing in my belly, I was not able to partake in the cocktails. But Laura and Jill enjoyed some for me. 

Laura ordered this beautiful and refreshing specialty cocktail (I cannot for the life of me remember what it was called)... 


And Jill stuck with the classic mimosas...


Jill also ordered the meal that she had been craving ever since her last visit…Chilaquiles Rojos, which are made up of "eggs over easy, bacon, pepperjack, red bean puree, tortilla strips, house made queso fresco, and roasted tomato salsa." It was just delicious as she had remembered, but she cautioned that those jalepenos are no joke. 


Laura and I couldn't make up our minds between the Texas Size BLT and the French Toast Casserole, so we split them. 

The BLT was suuuuper heavy on the bacon, which is never a bad thing. The seasoned fries were excellent as well. 


However, the French Toast Casserole was clearly the winner. The casserole was very reminiscent of bread pudding, and it was so, so good. And the strawberry syrup and sweet goat cheese "icing" really put it over the top. 


It was the kind of dish that dreams are made of. You better believe that I will be back.

About Me

My name is Catherine, but most of my friends call me Cat. I was born and raised in Austin, went to TCU, and ended up in Dallas for law school (where Josh and I met). I decided that being an attorney was not my cup of tea and pursued a career in legal marketing instead. I am now a mother of two attempting to balance family with a full-time job, which is always an adventure. I love: my sweet babies, handsome husband, very large family, and fabulous friends; trying new restaurants; wine; TCU football; holidays; cooking; pajamas; La Croix; reading; coffee; podcasts; Central Market; carbs; the beach; mani/pedis; Anthropologie; binge-worthy TV shows; trivia; French 75s; Pinterest; cheese boards; The Ticket; dancing; Sprinkles cupcakes; The Texas Rangers; fresh flowers; thunderstorms; naps; Tex-Mex; the Texas Hill Country; porch-sitting; ranch dressing; throwing parties; and my job. I hate: working-mom guilt; snakes; heights; waking up early; ignorant people; stomach bugs; paper cuts; green fruit; bad hair days; snoring; the sound of people eating (Misophonia); Miracle Whip; scary movies; bad drivers; pulpy OJ; trimming baby fingernails; and working out. I think that sums it up.
