Cafe Corazon

A drool-worthy Mexican-style brunch

If you have nowhere to be on a beautiful weekend morning and could really go for some seriously oozy, saucy, knock-your-socks-off Mexican-style brunch eats, you've got to try Cafe Corazon in Riverwest. This place is even approved for hangovers and birthday celebrations (they'll stick a candle in some guacamole for you!).

I say you should have nowhere to be because there will for sure be a wait. And it should be a beautiful weekend morning so that you can enjoy the patio seating. But I would love to go back sometime and sit inside for the cramped, kitschy experience — and more of the house red sauce. (Always the red sauce!) Bonus points to Cafe Corazon for using locally-sourced products, but honestly I'd eat there on repeat even if their foodstuffs came from the moon.

Adam and I shared a breakfast burrito ("wet" style — which just means it's topped with salsa, melted cheese, and sour cream) and a plate of chilaquiles, which had received numerous shout-outs on Urbanspoon — and rightly so. Chilaquiles is a sloppy mess of heaven with fried strips of corn tortillas, two eggs any style, choice or meat, rice, and beans all smothered in the to-die-for red sauce topped with melted cheese, onion, and cream. Get in mah belly! 

Truly, my party's only complaint was that we ordered three types of breakfast burritos among us (tofu, breakfast sausage, and chorizo) and we were each 1/4 of the way through before we realized our chorizo and tofu were mixed up, and another 1/4 of the way through before we realized the chorizo and sausage were mixed up. But in the end, we enjoyed our little game of musical burritos and can honestly say there wasn't a bad one in the bunch. Can we please go back now?!

Just a bunch of happy brunchers about to slip into a food coma.
