Best Breakfast

Blue Willow

Fighting passionless breakfasts since 1978, Blue Willow offers a hearty and hale spinach-jack-and-mushroom omelet for the calcium-deficient Popeye in us all. At Blue Willow's centrally located headquarters, the breezy back patio is an ideal place to enjoy mouth-watering crepes, which serve to protect with fresh strawberries, bananas, pineapple, blueberries and yogurt. Refilling coffee faster than a speeding caffeine bullet, the efficient wait staff and their minions await your every command to summons sustenance, like the eggs Benedict Blue Willow. The restaurant also can be relied upon to exhibit a keen sense of place, with Lerua's green-corn tamales and cranberry-pecan granola made right here in the Old Pueblo by Small Planet Bakery.
