This casual luncheonette is one of Inwood’s most popular spots for an easy and affordable breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Much of the menu is made on the flat top grill right behind the counter - including freshly-made Mexican dishes ranging from tacos to tortas, plus egg sandwiches, pancakes, and the like. But the breakfast burrito (listed as a special) might just be the best thing here. Get the works: scrambled eggs, home fries, chorizo, cheddar cheese, avocado, and salsa wrapped in a large tortilla and sliced in half. You’ll pretty much be set for the rest of the day.
