Good breakfast burrito between west side and downtown?

I work downtown (5th and Flower), and my route to work is as follows: PCH to the 10 freeway west, 10 freeway to the 110 freeway north, off at 3d St., park.

Just as easy, though maybe a bit slower, would be to get off the 10 freeway at Hoover, go north on Hoover to where Alameda swings off to the right, Alameda to 3d St., right on 3d St. to where I park.

My question is: If I were to take the latter route, is there a good place to pick up a breakfast burrito along the way -- i.e., on Hoover, Alameda, or 3d St. (before it crosses the 110 freeway)? For that matter, is there a good place to pick up any portable breakfast -- e.g., good donuts or pastries of any sort -- along that route?

  1. El Taurino on Hoover, just south of Olympic, I know they have burros,so I assume the have a mexican breakfast burrito, chorizo & egg or machaca and egg.

    1. There is a catering truck that parks in front of the Wells Fargo Center on Grand, just north of 5th, that makes a very good, if unbelievably caloric, breakfast burrito. In addition, I know it's surprising, but the chorizo and egg breakfast burrito at La Salsa (north west corner of 5th and Grand) is very good. (Really.) Lastly, I haven't explored breakfast fare at the Grand Central Market, but that would be on my list if I were looking.
