Mexican Breakfast in Mpls

Every so often I get a hankering for Mexican breakfast (huevos rancheros, chilaquiles, etc.) Any recs? I'm interested in Minneapolis only, and am looking for a Mexican restaurant and not breakfast places that have a Mexican-inspired item on the menu. Thanks.

  1. My favorite in St. Paul is El Burrito Mercado for breakfast. I think they are opening or already have opened up in Midtown Market. Maybe I'm mistaken.

      Sorry, I should have checked it out before I spoke. El Burrito Mercado is opening in the summer at the Midtown Global Market.

          The Midtown Market is in Minneapolis. I think the St. Paul was just for context (if the St. Paul one is good, the Mpls one should also be good in theory).

      1. I think Sonora Grill at MGM has breakfast stuff.

        1. i have not found many places that are open at breakfast time. La Terisita opens at 11:00 and has good huevos. they are on 34th avenue right off the crosstown hiway.

            Las Teresitas rocks! I haven't had their huevos yet, but everything else I have had there has been awesome, including their great salsa bar.

          2. Not seeing a ton of replies, I'm going to suggest the Andale Taqueria Y Mercado for breakfast. However, against the OP's request, this joint is located on the Richfield/Bloomington border so feel free to disregard this post.

            1. not to pile on the MGM posts, but my favorite chilaquiles in town are at la loma.

                    i have not been able to find huevos rancheros at breakfast hours but i like the huevos at Cocina Latina at 38th and Nicollet. theirs have a hint of Ecuadorian flavor, they have an interesting Ecuadorian salsa served on the side. I also like La Mixteca (they open at 10) at 7822 Portland in
                    Bloomington .

                      i just learned that La Mixteca is starting to open early 7:00
