Bill and I don’t eat out a lot. If you’re familiar with our
life, you know Bill is a gourmet cook. We also love our village, our house and our
dogs, so we eat dinner in quite a bit.
However, when we find we need to run some errands together
in Ajijic, we often plan them for the morning and eat breakfast out. We consider
breakfast the ultimate comfort food. Below are some of our favorites, but we’d like to hear about yours too.
Believe it or not, we seem to end up at Salvadore’s more
often than not for breakfast. I’m passionate about their coffee, which is good,
hot and full-bodied. We always sit outside on the patio and watch Ajijic pass
us by. Quite often we’ll run into friends who join us for breakfast.
Salvadore’s is the restaurant next to the street where the Wednesday tianguis
is held. That fortunate pairing makes this a very popular place to see and be
seen on Wednesdays. That being said, I don’t think Bill and I have eaten at Salvador’s even once on a
Wednesday. We prefer the quiet ‘any
other days!’ Salvadore’s has a good-sized
menu that includes both American- and Mexican-style breakfasts. They’re hearty
and filling, and the eggs are always cooked perfectly. The prices are good too.
Another favorite is a no-brainer - Mom’s Deli in Riberas near Clinica
Maskaras. If you haven’t been there lately, you’ll be surprised that it’s moved
west to the corner of that strip of businesses. I kind of miss the old
restaurant…more charm. However, the staff loves the new place…and whatever
makes the staff happy will definitely translate to happiness for us, I know!
This is good ol’, down-home, American cooking, with things like biscuits and
sausage gravy, and hash. Again, the eggs are always cooked perfectly per your
request, over-easy, over-medium, sunny side up, etc.
