Sticky, warm, fluffy medialunas. Just the sound of that just got me to turn off the stove, un-crack those eggs and suggested the idea of going out for breakfast. A ridiculous notion as some people out there might very well murder us for our packs of bacons and bagels sitting unused in our fridge. My reasoning was: a morning without having to lift a finger, staring out at the window, coffee in hands, and breathing in the smell of freshly baked medialunas from next door. 

Restaurant Critic

It’s a cafe/restaurant that has their own petite bakery next door. In one of my favorite neighbourhoods (I settle with anything that gets me with retirees and families in a quiet environment), the long french windows, corner location, and wooden interior are invitingly filled in the mornings with locals- all dropping in for a coffee and something of a nibble. The service is great and the price is unpretentious. Good to go by yourself, or with anyone to drawl out the whole morning undisturbed.

Food Critic

I blame it on my mother’s genes that we always order more than I intended, and even with a table filled with other dishes I still tracked down the waitress for more medialunas because it was too sticky, too warm, and too fluffy: to just have one. The brioche with poached egg was easily forgettable; the brioche itself was too thick and hard. The french toast came out suspiciously flat and brown, but the texture was revealingly delicious: crunchingly sweet on the outside and soft in the middle. In the end, it was the generous 1/2 cup scoop of queso crema and the medialunas that did it for me, and maybe the girly plates and teacups they serve coffee in.:)4 pesos for a medialunas. Order two with your coffee, and manipulate the other half to order toastadas so it comes with delicious jam and that generous blob of queso crema.

Pros

  • freshly baked medialunas from their bakery next door
  • generous service and generous slab of queso crema
  • coffee and teaware
  • unpretentious price
Cons
  • other breakfast-wanna-be selections: though their french toast is delicious enough

Mmm. Those pictures just make me want to go back and have one of those very yummy coffees and definitely the french toast. Looks are deceiving – some of the best french toast in the city next to yours truly personal recipe from his grandmother.
