Breakfast at Camino

lexdevil | May 10, 2009 12:33 PM

Finally got to Camino for breakfast this morning (Mothers' Day). Despite the crowds due to the day, the breakfast was super. Loved my PERFECT poached egg with grilled asparagus and pork belly. Stole some really nice french toast from my son. The duck fat roast potatoes and pork sausage with herbs were excellent. The sausage serving seemed especially generous for $5. I had a great cocktail (think Bloody Mary w/ gin rather than vodka) and the dudes enjoyed house made lemonade. Only caveat here is that the drinks are small, though they pack a punch in the flavor department. With the grilled bread and sweet condiments the total was around $66 for three before tip. I thought this was reasonable for the quality of the food.

I think you can walk in on most Saturdays, but they say it's getting quite busy on Sunday mornings. Regardless, Camino is now at the top of my list for great East Bay breakfasts where you can book a table instead waiting outside for an hour+. The previous safe bet was Eccolo, but I found the food more flavorful (and a bit less expensive) at Camino.
