100% natural

Hello from Mexico! That's right, I am coming to you this week from my favorite place on the planet - Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. It also happens to be the place where the carnivore and I said our vows. So, I may not have a lot of cooking recipes this week, but there will be drink recipes coming and, like today, places we love to eat when we are here. Today, I bring you 100% natural.
We love this place mostly for breakfast. It has nice eggs dishes and fresh juices to start the day. But, before I can do any of that I have to have coffee! However, there is no splenda here to sweeten your cup, only natural brown sugar.
Now to breakfast itself. They have offering such as apple and cinnamon hotcakes and chocolate croissants, but we like a little more protein to start the day. The carnivore ordered an open face sandwich of eggs and ham on nutty brown bread (which he promptly made into a sandwich).I had eggs mexicanas which included spicy peppers, cheese, and onions with a side of buttery brown bread. It is also served with a side of refried beans - a wonderful addition early in the day.I also had an amazing juice drink which was a combination of guava, orange, and pineapple juices. Yum! The perfect cure for a hangover too...This place is a chain, so you can find it other places in Mexico. But, if you are in Playa, you can't go wrong stopping here to start your day.

  4. Never got around to eating there, but wanted too. Maybe next trip. Is it was good as the place with the breakfast mashed potatoes?
