Breakfasting Beyond High Walls

After spending one last night in Baja California Sur, we punctuated our stay with breakfast at Casa Natalia’s two-tiered restaurant with umbrella-shielded tables and a palapa-topped bar. In waiting for my trip-mates, I was able to enjoy a strong cup of organic Blason coffee, Mexican, of course, from Oaxaca. My meal began in earnest with a colorful, much-needed glass of juice, which provided liquid nutrition in the form of nopales, parsley, pineapple, celery and orange. They had some truly uninspiring items on the menu, including “cereals from our cupboard” and Starbucks coffee, but thankfully offered a taste of Mexico as well. My surprisingly satisfying omelette incorporated spinach, panela cheese, onion, tomato, and homemade pesto. One nice touch was their house-made marmalade, which we were able to spoon on to breadstuffs. My favorite was watermelon-rosemary, though strawberry worked well too. This wasn’t my favorite hotel breakfast of all time, but it certainly beat expectations and did have a culinary identity.
