Last weekend, my fiancé and I had our photo shoot for our engagement. After all the fun picture taking, we decided to grab some breakfast from a place called Break of Dawn. The place has more than a thousand four star reviews on Yelp so we just had to try it out and plus the pictures of the food looked amazing.

We’ve been having some June gloom weather, but it was still nice enough to sit outdoors. I ordered Iced Vietnamese coffee, I wanted warm but the server didn’t hear me. The coffee was tasty, but I prefer the Lee’s Iced Coffee.

Ranchero Omelette Chorizo, Charred Tomatillo, Epazote, Queso Fresco, Avocado

The Mac N Cheese looked amazing but I wanted more of a breakfast menu item. I’m not a big fan of chorizo but I gave it a try. I ordered the Ranchero Omelette which is made with chorizo, bacon, epazole, requeson, avocado, and charred tomatillo sauce. I really enjoyed this plate because it had a lot of cheese! The bacon and the chorizo was a great combination with the omeletter and the potatoes were perfectly browned.

Spanish Meatloaf

Who orders meatloaf for breakfast? My fiancé does. He ordered the Spanish Meatloaf which was simply amazing. It’s made with barley, potato, bell peppers, Manchego, pinenut fried eggs and tomato cream gravy. I really enjoyed the texture of the meatloaf and the tomato cream gravy which was perfect with my browned potatoes.

Curiousro ordered the Bacon & Egg. Look at the big piece of delicious bacon! There are so many unique elements to this gourmet breakfast. The poached egg is deep fried, you’re served with a bowl of fried rice, you get a big ol’ piece of crispy bacon, napa slaw, and kimchi spiced crema.
