Useful information


Whether they’re digging into a refreshing ensalada de nopales or sharing a platter of blue-corn tacos stuffed with spicy-smoky marinated fish, local couples and families with kids in tow adore this sustainable Mexican dining operation. Sister to Cal-cuisine icon Nopa, Nopalito is a thriving and equally beloved culinary favorite.
The small, cheerful space with reclaimed wood and bright green accents doesn’t take reservations; call ahead to get on the list, or try takeout. Once seated, friendly servers will guide the way with house-made horchata for the kids and an extensive tequila selection for grown-ups. Both groups will certainly agree on a sweet finish: the excellent vanilla bean flan topped with orange caramel and orange supremes is unbeatable.
