La Flor de la Calabaza | Las Playitas - Ensenada

Melanie Wong | Jun 27, 201701:14 PM    

Breakfast on my first morning in Ensenada was at La Flor de la Calabaza. About 1 km south of the Hotel Coral, the oceanside walk and the fresh food found here were a great kick-off for a hectic day of chowing.

La Flor de la Calabaza is both a market and cafe.

The store side offers farm fresh local produce (mostly organic), eggs, country bread baked by Finca Altozano and many other artisanal products of the region.

With my fragrant digestivo fresh ginger-lemon tissane, I had a chance to try the coffee berry honey.

Mollotes (65 pesos) topped with frijoles negro, jamón y queso Oaxaqueno plus avocado and cured red onions looked a little too close to the derided hipster avocado toast of San Francisco. But on that terrific toasty Finca Altozano bread, there's no arguing with its deliciousness. Especially when combined with the cucumber and tomato relish and a dab of the chile de arbol-chipotle hot sauce.

The cafe has indoor and outdoor seating, and offers free wi-fi. A major construction project next door takes a break on weekends, so that would be the time to visit in peace and quiet.

Kudos to Chef Victoria Martin Castro on the right in the orange apron and Owner Angela Ferrar on the left, plus Yameel in the middle for creating healthful and tasty food in a welcoming, modern environment.

La Flor de la Calabaza serves breakfast and lunch Monday through Sunday.
