early-morning Mexican breakfast

  • c

I'm trying to find a good Mexican/Central American place, preferably in DC or not too far from it, that is open for breakfast (and this is crucial) before 11 am on weekends. Thanks.

  1. Moses' Pupuseria on 14th Street (at N, I think), NW serves up a yummy breakfast burrito (and some other breakfast-y type things, too). Haven't been on a weekend, but know that it's open early during the week.

    1. I am also in search of early morning Mexican breakfast -- preferably 7 am or earlier on weekends. Moses has closed. I love Steak & Egg (which has Mexican and is open 24 hours) but it is not kid friendly (counter). I see Taqueria National is opening for breakfast at 7 am soon, but I don't know the full details and have never been there (but heard good things). Anyone else have any other ideas?

      1. Not in DC but not far - Abi's in Arlington on Columbia Pike near Walter Reed.

          Though I never had breakfast here, I've had other things and really enjoyed them. I've been to about 15 pupuserias in the MD/VA/DC area, and this is my favorite. The oxtail soup is great. I used to walk to it, but now I make the 45 drive just for their pupusas. Once I was their, and a mariachi band was playing.

        2. Moroni & Brothers at 4811 Georgia Ave. NW is open at 0700 on Saturday, but not until 1100 on Sunday.

          They have an excellent Sal-Mex breakfast menu. This place is worth noting also because it's owned by two Pizzeria Paradiso alumni. The pizza from their woodburning oven shows their knowlege/expertise.
