Service is a little slow, but not annoyingly so. And the server was quite pleasant.

Coffee has cinnamon in it, so it’s a bit unusual.

The chilaquiles (normal ones, not Gabriella’s Chilaquiles) are spot-on. The tortillas are crunchy, and the green sauce is tangy, not hot, as I like it. There is a good portion of cotija cheese crumbled on top, which adds depth to the dish.

It comes with a choice of black beans or potatoes. I ordered half and half. The beans are very flavorful and saucy, with a long-simmered jalapeno chile in there. The potatoes come with corn mixed in, and they were also quite tasty. I’m glad I got both, as it gave the dish more variety.

Overall a delicious breakfast, and cheap. The chilaquiles were $6.95, a total bargain. I’m going back to this place for breakfast, and I’m also going to try lunch.
