Tijuana Breakfast Feasts

Tijuana Breakfast Feasts

Breakfast in Mexico can take many shapes and forms.  It could be tacos, quesadillas, seafood or cow intestine soup (menudo)! But for my purposes today, I’m going to highlight 3 breakfast restaurants in Tijuana where you can order a variety of egg delights, coffee and juice to stuff yourself silly.

Before we dive in, just FYI – I didn’t think my photos did any justice to these 3 places, so you’ll have to check out their Instagram accounts for that.  Proceed with Caution: It could make you really hungry…

Café de la Flor

Café de la Flor is my go-to and I was introduced to it by my friend Karla when we nestled into a booth at the Chapultepec location on a cold Sunday morning around 7 years ago for brunch.  I’ve been in love ever since.

Breakfast here is always delicious and they have quite a few options that include pancakes (hot cakes), crepes, french toast, egg plates, omelettes, chilaquiles and some specialty combos.

One of their combos on the menu is called the La Flor Slam, which for you cake for breakfast people like me, tops off the plate with a piece of either cake, cheesecake or a crepe! #sweetandsalty

Top that off with some fresh juice and smoothie options, cafe de la olla and lattes (my favorite is the Café de la Flor 🙂 made with cajeta) and you’ll be stuffed until dinner!

Average breakfast spend + coffee or juice = $7USD

Alma Verde

Alma Verde, what a great addition to Tijuana!  This new restaurant really brings home the farm to table atmosphere with a comfy, modern vibe.

Not only is their food amazing, which I’ll get to in a minute.  The most surprising was to find out that they have a nursing and changing room.  YES, you heard me!

Nursing mothers, listen up – they offer a comfortable room with plush chairs, changing table and they even have wipes and diaper cream to use.  Oh, and if you would like to order something to help milk production, there’s a special menu for that too. As a mother of a now toddler, I know this is a rarity in any restaurant.  I am usually crossing my fingers that there’s small flip down changing table in the bathroom!

Ok, back to the food. There’s an option for everyone!  And if you’re a vegan, this place caters to you too.  With choices from House Chilaquiles or with beet sauce, omelettes, french toast, pancakes to parfaits and sweet potato hash browns.  Nom nom nom…

Average breakfast spend + coffee or juice = $10USD

Los Chilaquiles

Los Chilaquiles is what you’d expect, a restaurant that offers a wide variety of Chilaquiles.  If you’re unfamiliar with this dish, all you need to know is that it’s a very traditional Mexican breakfast and great for hangovers too.  The simple version is that it’s tortilla chips with salsa! But yet, so much more than that.

This place offers about 30 different salsas to choose from.  And yea, you can get something else like pancakes or omelette…but why?  You have 30 salsas to try!

Check it out, you won’t be disappointed!

Provecho! Bon Appetit!
