Review: So it seems that Kristoffer’s Cafe is going to be my new morning spot before work. I’ve been trying hard not to sleep away the mornings as I am wont to do in the winter. Reviews to write, music to work on, books to read, life to live. Beds are nice, but why waste the day away inside of one unless you are accompanied by someone else to keep you busy? Not that I have any problems with that, but that person has a life apart from me as well.
Kristoffer’s breakfast burritos are affordable and well-sized. A large tortilla wrapped around melted cheese, scrambled eggs and, in my case, bacon. There are several choices on Kristoffers menu as to what you can get inside of your burrito, veggie and carnie. Me, I love my bacon. One of the worst meats for you and one of the best tasting. A lot like a first lover. Alluring and pleasant to the touch, but dangerous in the long run. A bad idea from the get-go, but such a good feeling.
The best thing about the breakfast burritos here, is the hot sauce served on the side. A deep, bloody red with pepper flakes within, this sauce makes your breath smoke even before you put any in your mouth. And once you do, your coffee will not soothe the sting on your tongue, but enhance it and make it resonate. What a great way to wake up!
