Breakfast Burritos at Cofax

I'm pretty happy with the breakfast burritos here--no hipster element in sight once you get the burrito. The potatoes are excellent, and it's worth the extra buck for avocado. The two salsas you get with it are excellent--the red salsa is quite spicy and smoky, and the tomatillo is expertly made. Nice alternating bites. This thing is also quite big. Total cost is 8 and change with the extra buck for Avocado. This area of town has no good breakfast burritos (everyone around here gets breakfast at Bagel Broker) so this is a nice alternative.

    1. Frank's right down the street also does an excellent Breakfast Burrito, FYI

        i get em at frank's all the time....i like em but i gotta say a bit small....plancha has bigger ones more egg but no chorizo, just bacon...but i like the green salsa at franks and plancha.

        i love the seasoned rice that comes in the carnitas and other burritos at franks too. nice family operation.

      2. Went to Cofax today to try the breakfast burrito. They have a veggie option w/ avocado. It was AMAZING. I was not expecting smoked potatoes and was just flipping out at how good this was.

            Yes, Prime Pizza is just a few doors down! I walked in, assessed if I could eat both pizza and a burrito and realized I was dreaming. The pizza looked really good! I can't wait to try it.

                id hit up all three on a friday: fish and chips, breakfast burrito, and a whole pie, but that would cost me just as much as omakase from a dependable sushi bar.

                  not even close if you eat the same amount

                    i'm exaggerating by a bit, of course.

                    ok, maybe by a shitload.

                    1. re: kevin

                      but a Fairfax bang bang with the obligatory q on la brea might make some sense...

          2. The Burrito is pretty good. Not my favorite, but better than most surfer boy types of Breakfast Burritos. That green salsa though is world class. It's kinda odd at first but grows on you. I'm not a green salsa sort of person... but I could have sucked theirs up with a straw!!

                    dommy-that's good taste. we have a running competition in our I have more wolf t shirts (hats, spirithoods, etc) or does she have more throw pillows? Sounds like it's a better situation for you guys!
