Papas Loco was crazy good and crazy big. The rosemary potatoes covered in black beans with a homemade tortillas was the perfect vegetarian not sweet option. Everyone loved their food. Fresh and really good.

The Mission was recommended by our hotel. We went for brunch and ate a ton of food that held us til dinner. Hubby had French toast which was HUGE, potatoes were crispy and chunky. I had the quesadillas which were so so as they could have more filling in them, but the black beans were super good. Cool local atmosphere... More

They have a simple lunch menu, but the food is fresh and the portions are big. The tamales were excellent. Great options for vegetarians.

This was a great little place in downtown. We got tons of food and it was well priced. The coffee was equal to Starbucks. The scrambled eggs were fluffy. The grilled rosemary bread was to die for. Our food was hot and filling. We were ready for the day.

If you look at the reviews I have posted, you will see that I am pleased with the places I go, as I utilize Trip Advisor to confirm recommendations. My wife and I walked from the Gas Lamp Quarter (our hotel's location) to eat here. Upon arrival, the hostess was rude, not interested and threw our menus on the table.... More

I had a late breakfast/brunch and it was fantastic. I had the breakfast quesadilla, which was just right - the tortilla remained crispy while the cheese was nicely melted and the egg and bacon filling was cooked just right. Staff was friendly and attentive. Note that the place does not take reservations, and it does get full on Sunday for... More

This place was recommended to me. i had the chicken Apple sausage with eggs. Big portions of tasty food. My friends were very satisfied with the roast beef hash and the zen breakfast. Though the waitstaff seemed rushed, they were very friendly. Great place for breakfast.

Had the roast beef hash and it was great. Wife had the rancheros verdes, needed a little more flavor. Friendly staff. Small place so get there early.

This place was quite surprising. I was a bit scared of the flavors and combinations. But each dish was great. I had the french toast, which i particularly liked. It's not your traditional french toast. I also liked the soy chorizo and added that to the breakfast dishes. The flavors of the chilaquilles was perfect. At least I thought so... More

We were a little concerned when we arrived as about 50 people were outside waiting for a table. We were told that the wait time would be about 25 minutes. We waited 35, but it was worth it. Breakfast/brunch menu is full of options; several with a Southwestern flair. I had the Rosemary breakfast (most items except the egg had... More
