The slogan at Santa Fe standout Tecolote Cafe is: Great Breakfast — No Toast. You won't miss the toast, thanks to spicy Southwestern specialties such as breakfast burritos topped with red or green chile, chicken livers Tecolote, and huevos yucatecos
(corn tortiillas topped with black beans, two eggs, green chile, Swiss and Feta cheese, pico de gallo
, and a side of fried bananas).The Tollhouse Hot Cakes (all batters are made from scratch) with chocolate chips and walnuts deliver breakfast and dessert at the same time.
From the restaurant's website:
"When Bill and Alice Jennison first
opened Tecolote Café on June 2, 1980, they intended to serve the best
breakfast in town in a cheerful, at-home atmosphere, and at a reasonable
price. Now, more than three decades later, they still strive for these
"The family-owned restaurant still serves French
toast, Tollhouse pancakes studded with chocolate chips and walnuts, and
eggs Benedict, along with bottomless cups of good coffee. The huevos
rancheros and sheepherder's breakfast satisfy the need for spicy chile,
New Mexico-style, without a lot of meat."
