Weekend Two - Bandidas on a Winter's Day

It was crisp with frost, and the grass made little crunching sounds. We wanted something warm and comforting for breakfast, and Bandidas didn't disappoint. They're on Commercial at 12th, and here is their website.

Catie loves brunch + I love brunch = We love brunch

Normally, early on a Sunday morning, Bandidas is filled with ironic mustaches (not just in November) and those with alternative views on bathing but today we were one of only two or three groups. The service was therefore excellent. Attentive, but not overly so. We chose a table near the kitchen, and settled in to read the menu.

I ordered the Breakfast Burrito ($11,) with guacamole, and roasted potatoes, and the whole thing was baked with cheese and enchilada sauce. Totally delish! Catie had The Breakfast ($8,) with eggs over hard, roasted potatoes, salsa, cabbage, pinto beans, and honey cornbread, of which I was quite jealous.

The burrito was piping hot, filled with eggs, salsa, cheese, beans, and sour cream. Not brunch to be taken lightly, it was giant-size! My orange juice was tasty (but with ice cubes?) and Catie's Salt Spring brand coffee started her day off right. I even managed to steal Catie's salsa, which was fresh-made, with a gentle spiciness. Her Breakfast hit the spot, and we went on our way. A definite success, it's easy to see why we come here often!
