Maria's Cafe

Ross and I went to Maria's Cafe in Minneapolis on a recommendation from a friend - and I think it is my new favorite breakfast spot!

Inspired by Maria's Colombian upbringing, the menu offered a wonderful fusion of American and Latin American breakfast favorites.

It's been a long time since I've had a cup of this!!!! It was definitely decaf, but I couldn't imagine eating a Latin American breakfast without a cup of Colombian coffee. It was wonderful, and reminded me so much of my time in Costa Rica. 

For breakfast I had Pablo's omelet, 3 eggs stuffed with rice, refried beans, onions, tomatoes, cheese and served with salsa and a tortilla. 

On the side - the meal wouldn't be complete without plantanos fritos!!!!! It has been so long since I've sunk my teeth into one of these! 

And the Ross enjoyed a meal much more on the American side of things: bacon, eggs and toast. 

There were so many other things I wanted to try: they had many different types of pancakes, including the traditional Colombian corn cakes, arepas, plantain pancakes with cotija cheese... we will probably be back soon! 

The cafe was simply decorated, the Latin music created a wonderful ambiance, and it was extremely affordable! Everything was under $10, sometimes well under, yet it was delicious and the service was great. I am glad I took the recommendation and am now passing it along to you! 

!Fue increible!
